How did I miss this?

Trailer for "Future X-Cops," which doesn't seem to be (officially) available on U.S. DVD yet. Evidently, Hong Kong has decided it's time to start kicking our ass at superhero movies...



The director is Wong Jing, who also did an infamous unlicensed "Street Fighter" movie called "Future Cops" back in the 90s. Incredibly, the films seem to share the same basic plot AND star Andy Lau!

I usually agree with you Moviebob, but this doesn't look very good. It just looks like a bunch of crazy stuff on screen at once. Without a good storyline to back it up like Sucker Punch had, the movie will just be a lame mess. Maybe it's a bit unfair to just judge it by a trailer since Sucker Punch didn't reveal any plot in the trailer, but at least that was visually striking to look at where as this...

To me, the Dark Knight is the perfect superhero movie and won't be topped for a long time by ANY country.

God, the best thing about Asian cinema is that they have no problem giving a hilariously bad B-movie a top-ranking budget.

That looks like the sort of movie to watch with friends and laugh at. Like Machine Girl, only without the gross.

Hey Bob, (Moviebob, not the other one) a bit off-topic, but I figured you may wanna read this interview with Nintendo localization manager Nate Bihldoff regarding "Metroid: Other M": http://www.shinesparkers.net/interview-with-nate-bihldorff It might help you in your argument in favor of the game. Cool trailer, btw. :)

Looks like a higher budget version of the original Power Rangers series crossed with Gundam Warriors and Superman mythology, and in no way am I complaining there :) Still, when it comes to super hero movies, only kicking *some* of their asses

That's a joke right? Makes me think of a Scifi... excuse me, SyFy channel original movie.
