I SHALL RETURN (Taiwan, 1982)

Original title: Huet chin gwai heung Liu
German VHS: Söldner im Todeskommando

VHS / Holland / FS / English dub / Dutch subs / uncut

When you think there's no more to discover!! Here's a Vietnam war flick from Taiwan. I haven't watched it nor do I own a copy! I'm only aware of two releases of the film, both on VHS; An English dubbed tape from Holland using the English title, and a German tape re-titled Söldner im Todeskommando. The latter is dubbed in German and cut (according to the guy who listed the tape on the German film data base OFDb the cuts are very visible!). The German tape, however, is listed as being in 1.85:1 widescreen while the Dutch tape is fullscreen.

Btw, OFDb lists the film as being a Hong Kong film but the Hong Kong Movie Data Base has it listed as a Taiwan film and I tend to believe the HKMDB when there's disagreement between the various sources.

Sylvia Chang is in the movie and she's a (very) familiar face to anyone who's into HK movies; Among countless others she was in the ACES GO PLACES movies, SHANGHAI BLUES, and HE LIVES BY NIGHT (which I still haven't watched yet but according to a HKMDB review it's about: "a man (Eddie Chan) becomes a cross-dressing night stalker, and attacks women wearing white fish-net stockings"!!!). And if nothing else she was also in my all time fave HK comedy, CHICKEN AND DUCK TALK where she played alongside Ricky Hui aka "the human Droopy". xD

Is this film on DVD or VCD???

Bikini girls with machine guns

Yep, this video is from the one they're watching in Tarantino's JACKIE BROWN. It's an awesome video; I mean all it is is a bunch of scantly clad sexy babes with automatic guns going: "This is an AK47" pow pow pow pow - Haha. Absolutely fantastic! xD.
