YesAsia Editorial Description

The beloved works of Jin Yong (a.k.a. Louis Cha) are brought to wacky life in The Eagle Shooting Heroes, a comic take on his classic novel Dong Cheng Xi Jiu. Featuring a standard wuxia plotline spun deliriously out of control for comic effect, The Eagle Shooting Heroes is one bizarre, over-the-top, and relentlessly funny motion picture. An all-star cast of Hong Kong actors - Brigitte Lin, Joey Wang, Maggie Cheung, Leslie Cheung, Jacky Cheung, Tony Leung Chiu Wai, Tony Leung Ka Fai, Veronica Yip, Carina Lau, and Kenny Bee - fight, fume, cross-dress, and behave generally silly as a who's who of classic Jin Yong characters, all looking for riches, love, fame, or maybe just a little pity. Regardless of their desires, it's all for laughs, and director Jeff Lau works overtime to make The Eagle Shooting Heroes a seriously deranged and hilarious motion picture with comic action sequences from the great Sammo Hung! Produced by Wong Kar Wai, who based his epic Ashes of Time on the same Jin Yong novel...and even used some of the same actors in the exact same roles!

Seriously funny Customer Review Rated Bad 8 - 8 out of 10
The first thing to know about director Jeff Lau's "The Eagle Shooting Heroes" is that it was a Chinese New Year release calculated, as Chinese New Year movies typically are, to generate laughs and send folks home to celebrate the holiday with smiles on their faces. It was a smashing success, generating not only laughs but huge box office receipts.

The film, however, has met with a decidedly mixed reception from Western film buffs, who clearly were not its primary target audience. Perhaps many of those Western viewers mystified at the film's appeal haven't read a Jin Yong novel or seen enough classic wuxia movies. To help them grasp Jeff Lau's spoof, I'd recommend that those folks spend some time watching Leslie Cheung in "Little Dragon Maiden". The truth is that "The Eagle Shooting Heroes" does for wuxia films what "Blazing Saddles" did for westerns.

The film begins with a scheme by the queen of Persia (Veronica Yip) and her lover (Tony Leung Chiu Wai) to overthrow the king. That scheme, however, along with the movie's many subplots, quickly become beside the point as the film hurtles through a series of hijinx that give the stellar cast to show off their comic chops. In addition to Veronica Yip and Leung Chiu Wai, that cast includes Brigitte Lin, Tony Leung Ka Fai, Maggie Cheung, Leslie Cheung, Joey Wang, Jacky Cheung, Kenny Bee, and Carina Lau. Ms. Lau, in particular, kept me in stitches, while Brigitte Lin, Joey Wang, and Leslie Cheung bring elegance to their comedy. Throughout, the action direction of Sammo Hung maximizes the silliness.

Sure, not all the jokes work. But Jeff Lau, who also scripted the film, keeps them coming at a rapid fire pace. For those steeped in the genre, it is hard to beat "The Eagle Shooting Heroes" for a very good time.

They're All Heroes Customer Review Rated Bad 10 - 10 out of 10
For those who saw this movie and thought it was senseless, let me clarify that one has to understand the underlying (i.e. read in-between the lines) joke and must have grown up watching old chinese kungfu movies in order to really get the laughs. So many 'topics' are thrown in , example , a pair of flying boot, flying carpet, homosexuality (Carina Lau and Kenny Bee) but with good fun, Tony Leung Kar Fai (aka Big Tony) who doubled himself as the disciple wanting to be an angel and his own sifu (both of whom spoke English). That left us with Leslie and Joey Wong who played lovers (until Leslie set eyes on Brigitte Lin, the princess). Then Jacky Cheung came along (he's Joey's cousin) and fell in love with her at first sight.

To confuse the viewers, Tony Leung Chiu Wai ( aka Little Tony) and his lover spoke Taiwan Teochew in the opening scene while Maggie Cheung spoke cantonese with ending pause in her sentences . The songs sang by Leslie Cheung and Big Tony are classic cantonese tunes but adapted with new lyrics. That single scene of Big Tony dressed as a female with that ridiculous hairdo is enough to gag you. Even Jacky Cheung throw in a number. Surely it's impossible to contain yourself with Little Tony's swollen lips which 'looked like a pair of sausages'.

Final word: I think cantonese speaking viewers get the best laugh out of this movie.

So glad I finally found and bought one.......

Don't watch this movie! Customer Review Rated Bad 1 - 1 out of 10
This is probably the most stupid movie I've ever seen in my life! The all-star cast could not make up for this incredibly stupid and corny movie; it was just horrible. After watching it for 30 minutes, I already lost interest and just stopped the DVD....I couldn't torture myself any longer. Don't make the same mistake as I did: don't ever buy or watch this movie!

Leslie Cheung was the only one worth watching Customer Review Rated Bad 8 - 8 out of 10
The story was hideously idiotic; nothing funny at all. I found the whole idea to be missing a light bulb. The only one worth watching was Leslie Cheung, he gave a brilliant performance as always.
