I Love Maria (HK 1988)

Rating: ***
Alternate Title: Roboforce
Producer: Tsui Hark
Cast: Sally Yeh, Tsui Hark, John Sham, Tony Leung (Chiu Wai), Lam Ching Ying

A wild and wacky sci-fi adventure comedy featuring a way-too-cool Sally Yeh as a tough triad bitch and as a kick-ass cyborg. She really does a fantastic job and looks great with a gun. Tsui Hark, John Sham, and a timid and nerdy Tony Leung bumble through the film trying to do what's right and trying to stay alive. Lam Ching Ying (without a moustache!!!) delivers kung fu goodness as the honorable triad elder whose power and influence have passed on to the younger hoods. Looks great, sounds great, and has decent effects, but much more campy and goofy than I expected. A lot of fun, though.
