Set the time machine for 1990, and take the trip. “Outlaw Brothers” is old-fashioned and rapid-fire martial arts fun.
Hey, the story is not that great. You can fast forward through the dull segments (basically anything that isn’t a fight scene). But, I really miss the kicking and crackle pops of the old-style Kung-Fu.
“Outlaw Brothers” is directed by Frankie Chan and partly choreographed by Hong Kong legend Jackie Chan. It’s a hoot! Oh, and the butt-kicking women give some of the best action, led by a female cop as she chases a pair of successful car thieves. Check it out. Lotso fun! Grade: B-
