Book of Heroes aka Fight to Win Again

Postby Pete Jr » Sun Jun 03, 2007 3:56 pm

This film has to be one of the best new wave film I've seen to date, I just watched the film again yesterday for the 100th time lol It's one of them films you just cant get enough of, the fight scenes are mind blowing especially the end fight scene with Yukari Oshima, Elsa Yueng and Joan Chen against Yasuaki Karada they really give him a hard time;*O Hopefully I should be getting a Widescreen Top quality version of the film by the end of this month.

What do you fans think of Book of Heroes, It's a top movie IMO

I liked it but it was a little too light hearted for me in places. There were some great fights in it but I felt that Kurata didn't put up as good a fight as he normally does. Oshima was superb but I was really impressed with Elsa Yeung in this one.

i have to agree with both of you. this film is new wave top class but that canto comedy almost ruined a great film. in the end they managed to make it work and it is what it is. a great action flick with a bit of comedy mixed in. the action is some of the best i have seen in GWG films.

Damn, that print you've got there is crystal mate!.
I agree, the comedy is dreadful but Yukari is superb in it. To be fair, it's probably one of Elsa Yeung's best roles too.
