2 Fast 2 Forever #220 – The Eight Diagram Pole Fighter (1984)
We’re tapping the O.G. Shaw Brothers well for another classic this week as we cover The Eight Diagram Pole Fighter. We talk New Year’s Eve stuff and debut a new segment before heading to the 2 Fast 2 Furious Minute (23:05) to spend a LOT of time parsing out where people live in 2F2F. Then, we avenge our families as we break down The Eight Diagram Pole Fighter (42:00). We wonder: Is Gordon Liu the G.O.A.T.? We talk about the unexpected and sad twist behind the scenes, the amazing (and unexpected) fights in the movie, and how it’s really all about family. Plus, Joe explains why this is the squishiest movie he’s ever seen.
