Exclusive Clip: THE GOLDEN CANE WARRIOR Delivers Old School Wu Xia Thrills On Blu-ray November 3
I was able to catch the film when it played at the Asian Film Festival of Dallas over the summer and I really enjoyed it. Here's a judicious selection from my review:
I know there are fun Indonesian films out there. Whether it's the balls out insane '70s action cinema of Arizal and Barry Prima, the intellectual horror of Joko Anwar, the brutally extreme cinema of The Mo Brothers, or even the stupidly goofball Garuda films. However, as fun as those films are, they don't have what I see to be the universal appeal of martial arts films like The Golden Cane Warrior. While it's certainly no Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon and it won't catapult its creators into the international limelight, it could definitely serve as an interesting point of departure for film fans looking to dip their toes into Indonesian films. Solid, entertaining, and easy to follow; what else do you need?
