Product Description

Johnny Wong, Eddy Ko, Ray Lui, Lung Wei Wang - Dir:Kirk Wong

Amazon.com

Imagine an old-school martial arts melodrama about competing fighting schools dropped into the grungy sci-fi world of Blade Runner, and you have an idea of the curious mix of styles in Flash Future Kung Fu. Eddy Ko is the maverick star pupil of an honorable school who secretly engages in underground "Black Boxing" bouts, a black market sport off limits to the school. The ambitious X-Gang, a bloodthirsty neo-Nazi-like organization, plots to take care of Ko and his friends and take over the city with their army of mind-controlled zombie soldiers. In true Hong Kong fashion, it boils down to a showdown of champions, and this one takes place in a boxing ring in an eerily empty warehouse with video coverage broadcasting the event all over.

This 1982 thriller has the cyber-punk look and texture down cold: misty dark rooms lit by the cathode-ray blue of TV monitors, a funky mix of punk fashions with decorative gas masks and radiation suits, and bizarre nightclub theatrics (two women in pink tutus savagely club a third in a leopard-skin jumpsuit, then try to drown her). It doesn't make much sense, but this pre-Hong Kong New Wave adventure from future Hong Kong luminaries director Kirk Wong (Crime Story, The Big Hit) and editor David Wu (Hard-Boiled, The Bride with White Hair) is a fascinating twist on a familiar genre. --Sean Axmaker

Wow, this movie is really out there. A lot drug use, weird murder scenes, and a shot of Wang Lung Wei's behind (not my type of thing, but I figure some ladies out there would want to know).

In a setting somewhat similiar to Mel Gibson's The Road Warrior, Johnny Wang Lung Wei and Ray Lui (from the classic gangster flick To Be Number One) play friends who train all day to fight some Neo Nazis. And Eddy Ko has a nice role as their master. This is definitely not a well made movie, but I loved it. It's one of Wang Lung Wei's best fighting performances, and there's just something about seeing him in a black rain coat going off on people that gets me excited. A lot of his punches and kicks actually connect. I can't even count how many times I said "ouch" outloud. The choreography is done 80's Hong Kong kickboxing style, and it fits Wang Lung Wei like a glove. The bottomline is, if you are a fan of Wang Lung Wei, you have to see this. You won't be disappointed with his performance, trust me.

3/5

The Tai Seng DVD is full screen and the picture quality is actually pretty decent. But there's one big problem. The movie seems to be heavily cut. I've heard about an original version under the name Health Warning, so I would advise seeking that out.

With a darkness and incoherence unsurpassed, this is a true classic. Imagine Blade Runner without stars, or coherent story. Imagine a budget one one millionth of that of Blade Runner, so desparate are things that a television repair shop plays the role of a high-tech computer room! Imagine Nazi Hong Kong skinheads fighting the unnamed, good guy figthing club! Imagine pink tutu'd fighting girls drowning a leopard garbed babe in an aquarium! Watch this with a room-full of friends at 2am!
