YesAsia Editorial Description

After Cape No. 7 and Monga, Taiwan saw another locally produced blockbuster in Night Market Hero, which grossed over NTD120 million at the box office during Chinese New Year 2011. Starring Blue Lan (L-O-V-E), Alice Ke (Miao Miao), and Zhu Ge Liang in his highly anticipated cinematic comeback, the hit comedy fully embraces the indigenous grassroots culture of Taiwan epitomized by the various ordinary folks in a fictional night market. Directed by Ye Tian Lun, the inspirational crowd-pleaser follows a group of food vendors who have made their living in the bustling 888 Night Market for over a decade. Their livelihood is threatened when some real estate developer acquires the land where the night market is situated. Hua (Blue Lan) leads his fellow vendors in a hot-blooded David-vs-Goliath struggle to defend their home against corrupt politicians and greedy corporations.

Taiwan Version DVD comes with special features including commentary, making-of, deleted scenes, and cast interviews.

Haven't I seen this before? Customer Review Rated Bad 6 - 6 out of 10
"Night Market Hero" sets its story in an intriguing milieu -- among the food vendors and game operators in Taipei's 888 Night Market -- and populates the story with some wonderfully earthy characters. Unfortunately, the story itself (greedy real estate developer connives to displace the market for an upscale building; street-smart locals fight to defend their turf) is one we've seen just a few too many times.

On the positive side, several cast members make very strong impressions, particularly Lotus Wang as Madam Steak, Yan Yi-Wen as the chicken fritter seller, and Esther Liu as the night market's great beauty. When the film (mostly in its first half) concentrates on these lively folks, it soars.
