Storyline

A shmo makes a deal with the devil so he can become a great Pop star just to impress his dream girl. After he makes the deal, a catholic priest hangs around him to try and convince him that he screwed up and he needs to get his soul back or he'll be damned for eternity. Well, everything goes bad for the shmo and he wants his soul back. But, the devil's lacky doesn't want to give it back. So the priest and the devil's lackey go at it mano y mano. John Woo style!!

John Woo's Bedazzled
7 October 2003 | by (Sacramento, CA) – See all my reviews

To Hell With The Devil (1981) is an entertaining version of the cult comedy Bedazzled. Ricky Hui stars as Bruce Lee (Not the fighter, he tells a young lady) a struggling singer/songwriter who'll do anything to be successful. One day, he meets a minion of the devil (played by Stanley Fung). He also meets a servant from god (Paul Chun) the two constantly fight over the soul of Ricky. Nat Chan plays a sleazy Pop Star who benefits greatly from Ricky's stolen song book. Will the Devil take Ricky's soul or will it belong to God? Check it out. As with all of John Woo's films, he reuses many action set pieces that show up in his later films.

Recommended for John Woo and Ricky Hui fans.
