Audience Reviews for Heroes of the East
AKA 'Shaolin Challenges Ninja', AKA Gordon Liu Smacks a Little Japanese Girl Around For a Half Hour or So. Great Chinese vs. Japanese martial arts demonstrations as Liu and his arranged bride, Yuka Mizuno, bicker and argue (and fight) over whose culture is superior. Once the Japanese masters take up Liu's misguided challenge, the fight sequences really get good. Noted as being a "respectful" Chinese take on Japanese martial arts, but only to the extent it doesn't mock them openly -- at least not after the first half.
Mizuno Yuko is adorable as Gordon Liu's earnest Japanese bride who insists that her culture is superior in martial arts. Marital bliss evaporates soon there after in this bloodless Sino-Japanese war of the roses.
