Executioners (HK 1993)

Rating: ***
Alternate Title: The Heroic Trio II
Director: Johnny To, Ching Siu Tung
Cast: Maggie Cheung, Anita Mui, Michelle Yeoh, Lau Ching Wan, Anthony Wong, Damien Lau

A somewhat disappointing sequel to "The Heroic Trio" (1993) set in a post nuclear holocaust future where the world's water supply is controlled by a super psycho villain (Anthony Wong). Maggie Cheung is quite a letdown, being more of a hippie than a rocker like she was in the first film (although she looks great in the final fight scene), and a reformed Michelle Yeoh only ends up being savagely killed at the end of the film. We do, however, get to see Anita Mui rip the head off of a rat and drink its blood, though.

Oddly, the domestic version doesn't bring up the issue of Thief Catcher (Maggie Cheung) being pregnant, making the bathing sequences vague and confusing.
