Viewed from a postcolonial angle, this paper intends to examine the paradoxical aspects of the Taiwanese director Wei Te-Sheng's action saga by analyzing both the Orientalization of the Taiwanese aboriginal saga/epic and the literary aesthetics of minor writing/literature that happens to create a resistance literature in this movie. In other words, I plan to examine the problematic aspects-both positive and negative aspects-of Wei's Orientalization of this epic/saga movie. And the main postcolonial literary theories appropriated in this paper are those of Said, Spivak, Bhabha and Deleuze.
