Editorial Reviews

Innocent citizens flee mutant marauders in this electrifying film from famed director – and frequent Jackie Chan collaborator – Benny Chan (Connected, Who Am I?) Featuring a star-studded cast including Collin Chou (Jet Li’s Fearless, The Matrix Reloaded) and Qi Shu (The Transporter) this thrilling flick packs a serious punch thanks to action sequences concocted by legendary choreographer Chung Chi Li (Rush Hour, New Police Story).

Sunny, a lowly circus clown, dreams of following in his father’s footsteps by perfecting lethal Flying Dagger technique. That dream seemingly dies the night a group of bullies force Sunny into a mysterious cave where an abandoned military experiment turns them all into mutants! Suddenly bestowed with superhuman strength, Sunny finally has the power to master his father’s technique and defend the city against his horribly-disfigured fellow mutants!

I thought this was a great action/comedy. There were some fights that I had to watch again because they were really cool.

If you like martial arts mayhem with a modern twist of crime lords and gun fights this could be a movie for you.

I like Aaron Kwok. He has a lot of detractors who call him wooden and full of hot air, but I've enjoyed him in movies like 2000 AD and China Strike Force. But it really pains me to see him act like such an annoying and dense character in City Under Siege. It's supposed to be a running joke in the movie that he's an idiot, but it's not the least bit funny.

He stars as a circus performer in a traveling troupe. One day, they all discover strange chemicals underground, and for no reason at all, Aaron's fellow performers turn on him and become evil. Then they get mutated with augmented strength and start a rampage. Aaron also gets mutated which doesn't alter his looks, but makes him an expert knife thrower.

Shu Qi plays a news reporter who gets fired in favor of someone younger. .........Yeah right. She meets Aaron and they end up having some of the worst romantic chemistry of the year.

As mentioned before, the villains have no motivation to be villains and are just ridiculous. Colin Chou is their leader, and his mutant makeup looks awful. The script also requires him to be a whiny crybaby who has fits of rage.

Wu Jing also has a role as a cop tracking down the mutants. He looks like he should be the star of the film, but is completely out of place playing second fiddle to Aaron Kwok. His character also proves to be unlikeable when he proclaims that the mutants are freaks who need to be tortured and given autopsies.

One of the characters also has a girlfriend who dies simply to force emotion out of the audience, and it comes across as cheap.

After scoring big with New Police Story and Invisible Targets, it's a wonder how Benny Chan can direct a film with so little action. The fight scenes are very short, and instead of cool choreography it's a mix of gimmicky CGI and lame comedic antics.

This film is a waste of time, and I can't believe US distributors would want to expose this to potential audiences.
