Podcast On Fire may focus on the known and the big guns out of Hong Kong cinema, classics or not, but no one’s demanding the programming to be strict or they’ll tune out so for this episode, based on the suggestion of our guest, we switch it up and head to part of the Hollywood filmography of a Hong Kong director. Namely John Woo and his third outing in America from 1997 called Face/Off. For our second review, we’re following among other things an actor on top of his game but not quite ready to be embraced by the public. Still, didn’t stop awards juries from giving Chow Yun-fat accolades for his performance in Leung Po-chih’s 1984 war drama Hong Kong 1941. With Kenny B and special guest Dr. Stan Glick.

We take a look at when the combo of martial arts, horror and the supernatural clicked, the genre bender if you will in the form of Sammo Hung’s Encounter Of The Spooky Kind from 1980 as well as the sequel to one of the most iconic Hong Kong action pictures of all time, John Woo’s A Better Tomorrow II.
