TRAILER - MY FATHER IS A HERO (aka THE ENFORCER) (1995)
MY FATHER IS A HERO proudly sits among my top three Jet Li flicks, somewhere between FIST OF LEGEND and ROADHOUSE. The Jet plays an undercover cop, struggling to balance his occupation with the responsibilities of being a husband to his terminally-ill wife (the perpetually whining Bonnie Fu) and father to his son (the perpetually ass-kicking Miu Tse). The movie's a bit long - and plenty over-dramatic - but it more than makes up for it in sheer badassery.
Highlights include a mall rampage, yo-yo son, a weird white-gloved villain, dog-fu, father/son drowning camaraderie, and Jet Li once again stealing Pee-Wee Herman's haircut.
BTW, the Asian trailer is much better than the domestic version. Check out this good shit.
PUT YOUR WEIGHT ON IT.
