The Eagle Shooting Heroes 射鵰英雄傳之東成西就
The Eagle Shooting Heroes is a 1993 Hong Kong comedy film directed by Jeffrey Lau. It is a parody of Louis Cha's novel The Legend of the Condor Heroes.
Production The film was said to be caused by the over-budgeting of Wong Kar-wai's Ashes of Time. In order to cover up the cost of the yet unfinished film, the director decided to use the whole cast to shoot a "quick-and-dirty" film for show during the Chinese New Year, a period for Hong Kong film industry to harvest cash.
Cast Leslie Cheung as Huang Yaoshi
Brigitte Lin as Third Princess
Tony Leung Chiu-Wai as Ouyang Feng
Carina Lau as Zhou Botong
Kenny Bee as Wang Chongyang
Veronica Yip as Ouyang Feng's cousin
Jacky Cheung as Hong Qigong
Maggie Cheung as Imperial Master
Tony Leung Ka-fai as Duan Zhixing
Joey Wong as Suqiu, Huang Yaoshi's lover
Paw Hee-ching as one of Third Princess' guards
Music In addition to a score by James Wong, the film contains a song set to the overture from Gioacchino Rossini's Guillaume Tell, as well as uncredited excerpts from "L'amour est un oiseau rebelle" from Georges Bizet's Carmen and Danse des petits cygnes from Piotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky's Swan Lake.
I watched this movie, and I couldn't believe how come those big superstars were willing to play such a silly movie. Until later I found out the reason why. This story is quite entertaining. It's fun to see those big actors acting so silly like that.

Admin: hi guys! I'm adding a new section on the forum. Since so many of good ancient costume series appear in the market, like Nirvana in Fire, etc. A bit touch of wuxia, but not really wuxia. Some are historical fictions with a touch of wuxia,
