Jason goes to CAAMFest--Thursday, March 20

Just one film a week ago Thursday. But it was an awesome one. It even says so in the title--AWESOME ASIAN BAD GUYS. Made as a web series by the National Film Society (Patrick Epino & Stephen Dypiangco) as a parody and loving homage to all the awesome Asian bad guys of the 80's. Tamlyn Tomita (Kumiko from KARATE KID II) comes to the NFS for help both protecting herself and avenging the murder of her sister Pamlyn. So they assemble the heroes of their youth--first and foremost Al Leong, who cannot be killed. Then they try to find Jet Li, only to find out that George Cheung daughter was named after his ex-wife's favorite Asian actor--Jet Li. Luckily, she still kicks butt. Yuji Okumoto (Chozen in KARATE KID II) still has some moves, and for some reason comedian Randall Park rounds out the cast. And they all go do what they do best--kick butt, take names, and get laughs. That was lots of fun.

Running Time: 52 minutes
