Well, Ain't That Andy Lau Fighting.... Cyborgs?
And who could possibly be behind this, if not Wong Jing?

After his latest "tour de force" 大內密探靈靈狗 (On His Majesty's Secret Service), Hong Kong's Maestro of Crap has decided to up the ante, this time with an ambitious (?) action sci-fi extravaganza entitled 未来警察 (Future X-Cops). The story goes something like this: it's 2085, the Mayans were wrong, and the world now enjoys clean solar energy for all, courtesy of a certain Dr. Ma, who first developed the project. But, surprise surprise, evil terrorists manage to create some diabolical technology of their own, sending cyborgs back in time (2008) to stop Dr. Ma's creation, and make a fortune with our good ole oil shenanigans. Fear not though, because supercop Andy Lau is sent to stop all this from happening. Aaand, well, ass-kickery choreographed by Ching Siu-Tung surrounded by He Man-like sound effects and corny CG ensues?

If you can take some of that, and Fan Bingbing wearing leather pants, then go ahead and check the trailer. The film releases this December.

"Master of Amusing Crap". There is no guiltier pleasure than Jing Wong, but some of his films are worth it.

That looks like a "so bad it's good" movie.

I am really impressed with the imagination, but the performance looks really bad and pathetic.

Was that Riki-Oh as one of the bad guys? Also, what the fuck is Andy Lau doing in this crap? This kind of roles are more for Nicholas Tse or Andy On.

ChevalierAguila - Yup that's Fan Siu Wong. He seems to have re-surfaced of late, with Ip Man, Kung Fu Chefs and this. Good thing too. But this looks terrible thus far, like Kung Fu Cyborg - but at least with more cyborgs! Who knows? Although I already know come december I'll have to sit through it....:s

Good to see Fan getting more work, even if it's just as stock villian.

Also, this needs to be said again but boy this looks awful, even Kung Fu Cyborg at least looks with better production values. This is direct-to-video territory.

Well it's Wong Jing, don't take it too serious.

The makers of Mighty Morphin' Power Rangers called. They want their CG back.

Honestly, I really like Andy Lau, but this looks amazingly bad.

WOW! That trailer reminds me of the old Chinese superhero movie InfraMan... It's almost sad to see Andy Lau in this, after such great movies as the Infernal Affairs trilogy, Three Kingdoms and The Warlords...
