Man, we love Shaw Brothers movies. Especially because one of the Shaws was named "Sir Run Run Shaw," which is like, totally the best name, ever. Even better than say, J rgen Schrempp. Anyway, for some reason we got all caught up in this fantasy of the Five Deadly Venoms stopping gross polluters in Shanghai and stating (lips out of sync with their words, natch), "Yes, you may have a car. But still, it does not meet Euro I emissions standards. So. I have no choice but to kill you! BEAT!" The reality's more prosaic: drivers of cars that don't meet the Euro I standard will be fined if they're caught motoring in the inner city. Our version's so better.
