Barrio Brawler and Hit Girls at the Action On Film Festival in Monrovia, CA August 17-25

Some of you may not be familiar with the Action On Film Festival. It’s a festival exclusive to the world of, you guessed it, martial arts and action cinema. Of course they will show other genres of film, but Action reigns supreme. If it’s for you, and you live in a place close to Monrovia, CA, then you owe it to yourself to check it out. Some of the very folks I like to promote on this website will have films there. Who, you might ask? Well…



Barrio Brawler



Dang right. Here’s your chance to catch this film in the theaters, and I tell you it’s well worth your time. Here is my review, and the trailer below:


For the long-timers on this website you’ll remember Maria Tran from her Quest for Jackie Chan documentary she was making, and a film I reviewed on this website, Maximum Choppage.

Here she teams up with beautiful Hong Kong Actress JuJu Chan (she has multiple projects on the way, and she just had a film come out with the legendary Yuen Wah) Maria’s a cool lady and this should be pretty good.

Here’s a synopsis:

Two mismatched killer assassins, sexy elite barbie Pixie Ho (Juju Chan) and hot-tempered, tomboy partner Charlie Vu (Maria Tran) are reaching breaking point in their tag team partnership. The mismatched duo must look past their differences when they take on an unusual undercover school girl assignment and take down the son of a multi millionaire, playboy Michael Huang – their former primary school crush. But will this be their last assignment?

Of course there will be many, many, MANY more… I’ll post some of the more interesting ones as I hear about them!
