                                   Cheap kung fu flicks cobbled together by the likes of Godfrey Ho, Joseph Lai and 

                                    Tomas Tang are the hallmark of renegade movie producers Asso Asia Films Ltd.

                            Their movies are easily characterized by a toxic blend of martial arts, paper thin plots, sadism, 

                              outrageous sound effects, and flamboyant Korean action stars such as Hwang Jang Lee,

                                                         Elton Chong, Casanova Wong and Dragon Lee.

                                 

                           Asso Asia always deliberately courted the English language market- renaming Asian actors with

                            flashy, easy to remember monikers and dubbing them in thick British voices. Widely distributed 

                                in America at bargain prices, Asso's films were among the most heavily distributed kung fu

                               movies in the land. The company was also able to wrangle major kung fu actors to appear in 

                            their productions- Lo Lieh, Gordon Lau Kar Fei, Carter Wong, and John Liu to name a few.
