Heroes of the East
A Chinese kung-fu master is put in the precarious position of having to salvage his honor after inadvertently insulting the family of his new Japanese bride. His loyalty on the line, the dishonored martial artist attempts to regain his in-laws' trust by dueling with seven Japanese ninjas. With each round, the stakes get higher, the fighting styles alternate, and his opponents grow increasingly fierce. Which style will ultimately prove more effective, and what will it take for the hapless groom to admit that he's finally met his match? ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

    I remember watching this movie back in the day during "Blackbelt Theatre" which came on Saturday afternoons after the morning cartoons. This was about Chinese Kung-Fu vs. Japanese Martial Arts. This movie rocked back then, and it still rocks now!

    Clearly Shows the Difference


    I like that the movie shows the difference forms of fighting skills from the Japanese and Chinese standpoint. Plus the women with fighting skills still had to deal with discrimination.
