The Eagle Shooting Heroes
In the early 90s, cult f'lmmaker Wong Kar Wai and fellow Hong Kong director Jeff Lau established Jet Tone Films, an independent production company that has been responsible for some of the most remarkable films to have emerged from the region. Jeff Lau's flm The Eagle Shooting Heroes is based upon the same famous Louis Cha novel as Wong's own Ashes of Time which was shot concurrently and shares much of the same star-studded cast. A complete subversion of the Wu Xia Pian martial arts genre, Lau's film is a wickedly funny parody which piles on love triangles, bizarre musical numbers and entertaining action sequences choreographed by Sammo Hung (Enter the Dragon)to create one of Hong Kong cinema's most beloved cult classics.
