Featuring numerous references to Western war movies, such as The Deer Hunter and Rambo: First Blood Part II, Eastern Condors is an action masterpiece like no other, filled with incredibly dangerous stunt sequences and full-contact fight scenes that left its cast bloody and bruised. Presented here fully uncut for the first time ever in the UK and from a brand new 2K restoration.

Presented here as part of our celebration of the Scala cinema, Eastern Condors is a great example of the guest programming that also formed part of the cinema's notorious mix; the film was screened under the banner 'Eastern Heroes', named after the fanzine-hosted evenings curated by Rick Baker for the cinema. Eastern Condors was also one of the last films to ever screen at the Scala, appearing in the final May 1993 programme.
