Awesome Asian Bad Guys

Directed by Patrick Epino & Stephen Dypiangco

What happened to the actors that played that one Asian villain in your favorite childhood action flicks? Well, it turns out that they teamed up with the National Film Society to avenge the wrongful death of Tamlyn Tomita’s twin sister, Pamlyn, in AWESOME ASIAN BAD GUYS. Directors Patrick Epino and Stephen Dypiangco assembled the AWESOME ASIAN BAD GUYS for the very characters that they portrayed on film and what they do best — kick butt.

A screwball comedy that doesn’t take itself too seriously, AWESOME ASIAN BAD GUYS is directors Patrick Epino and Stephen Dypiangco’s homage to the actors who played iconic, yet paradoxically nameless Asian villains on the silver screen. This tribute has Al Leong, Yuji Okumoto and George Cheung playing themselves in an almost life-imitating-art caricaturization of their most recognizable roles.
