Eagle Shooting Heroes

Executive produced by Wong Kar-Wai, Jeffrey Lau's "absurd 1993 masterpiece" (Audtin Chronicle) Eagle Shooting Heroes is a fast, funny, flamboyant, and wildy imaginative martial arts farrago. This "crazed, hyperactive takeoff" (Variety) parodies the patchwork quilt illogic, wall to wall fight scenes, stalwart heroes, coniving villains, and enchanted romance of vintage 60's and 70's Wu Xia Pan films with the same over the top energy of the genre it hilariously mocks.

Loosely plotted, Eagle Shooting Heroes mixes court intrigue with the story of the plucky, martial arts challenged Third Princess, who runs a no holds barred race against two ruthless Taiwanese magicians to obtain both the Princess' imperial jade seal and the secret of a mystical book of combat. When things go wrong, Third Princess gathers an alliance of wacky characters with names like East, Evil, South Emperor and North Beggar to win her throne back. Any further sunopsis is futile, but a dinosaur and a gorilla do fit in the mix.
