Tag: Chu Yen Ping
The director of Fantasy Mission Force scales down the genre bending and time warp madness and goes for a stripped down, broad comedy about a treasure hunt highlighted by frequent action choreography featuring among others Yukari Oshima. A Book Of Heroes from 1986 starts off this episode of Taiwan Noir and in the second half a family of special effects wizards that take on the triads. It’s called A Heroic Fight, also from 1986. With Kenny B and Todd Stadtman.

Take a bunch of good looking, iconic girls, plant them in movie reality courtesy of die hard movie nerd Chu Yen-Ping and you get products that probably outrages most rather than delights but that’s ok. It sparks conversation if it’s an homage or not to steal so many scenes from other movies and their music for your own. For this episode of Taiwan Noir therefore you have to imagine a paralell movie world where everything is possible. We got 80s pop star haircuts, a wild west town with 80s style grafitti, Chinese Nazis, the Ku Klux Clan and a lot is set to Ennio Morricone’s music. It’s of course a double bill of Taiwanese reefer madness in the form of Golden Queen’s Commando and Pink Force Commando! In Last Taiwanese Movies Watched, there’s challenges in devil areas and Joey Wong in a boobie flick that is equally short and long.
