Jing Wong protege who made his name as a film editor, but also ended up directing his fair share of genre films. Hardly the most talented and unique director of the bunch, but his oeuvre is pretty meaty and full of solid genre filler.

Mak and Ng gave the film a unique style and flavor while royally quoting older films from the genre. Amusing, fun and quite lovely to look at. Great fun altogether.

Warriors of the Nation poster

A classic Wong Fei-hung narrative, sporting evil Japanese henchmen, corrupt Chinese officials and some serious ass-kicking by Wong Fei-hung and his apprentices. The execution is decent and it was fun to watch a simple martial arts film like this again, but it's hardly best in class and it's far from the most memorable Wong Fei-hung film out there.
