Heroes from the East
Lau Kar-Leung's best movie, this one is so much fun. everything works in this movie completely. there are so many martial arts styles on display here it's never boring.
it's also very non-traditional, as the Japanese aren't portrayed as subhuman villains. they can't compete with Chinese styles, but then, they didn't make the movie!
part of this movie was used in "Fist of Legend", specifically the love between the Chinese and the Japanese. good stuff in both movies.
