Did You Know?


The Tuxedoed Guy's real name is "Yu Jin Xiang" (Tulip), and his entrance theme is also that of "Chor Lauheung" (1979) ("Chu Liu Xiang" in Mandarin), a martial arts soap that Adam Cheng was starring in at the time. Given he played a suave swordsman with an eye for women in the latter, he was associated with these Bond-like characters for a while. His role as "Tuxedo Man" is a riff on that. See more »

The greatest film of ALL TIME!
29 April 2001 | by (Petaluma, California) – See all my reviews

It isn't the greatest film of all time, of course, but it is certainly one of the oddest. No matter how many times I see this film (and I've seen it quite a bit) I never get tired of the relentless, manic energy this film spews from the screen.

The plot is so inane that I'm tempted to ignore it. It may or may not take place during the Second World War- in any case, the Japanese invade Canada, and, in the process, capture Abraham Lincoln and a handful of other dignitaries. This situation is of course intolerable to our Chinese allies, who immediately hire a crack team of mercenaries to rescue the captives. Wackiness ensues.

At various points we encounter a village full of leopard skin-clad amazons led by some guy in a tuxedo, a haunted house full of hopping zombies, a ridiculous song & dance number in a restaurant, and an army of Japanese Road Warrior-style Nazis who surf on top of old American muscle cars. The movie is hilarious, and, as far as I'm concerned, a must watch.
