Maximum velocity adrenaline fuels the 1994 Hong Kong live-action rehab of the anime watershed. It's got enough juice to jack up half a dozen movies. And it's so frantic and rampant, you'd have to stop midway to catch your breath. Set in a Hong Kong strangleheld by an economic cartel of alien shapeshifters, it follows two alienbusters, played by Jackie Cheung and Leon Lai, as they get to the bottom of a bodycount of junky wormfood. The gunhappy set pieces will , of course, unhinge your jaws. And this is packed with more ideas than Roland Emmerich and Jan De Bont's combined past/present/future ouevre. But director Mak Kit Tai doesn't have a clue what to do with them. Much like Emmerich and De Bont, really. So. When in doubt,overcompensate. Mak then revs everything up to a hyperbolic bluster where one alien hatchetman becomes a killer clock and another disguises itself as punch and still another morphs into a horny pinball machine, a carnivorous elevator and a Giger-like motorcycle-woman. Amazing on paper but it all plays a losing round of catch-up with the hit-and-miss (but mostly miss) special effects. When it gets to the climactic , and laughable, airborne duel between two aliens mounting hijacked 747s, exhilaration becomes exasperation and you're never sure if you're gasping in awe or just starting to gag. Camp delirium cranked up to 11, without a doubt. But I'd stick with the anime.
