Storyline

The Hero Gang is a nasty group of thugs terrorizing Hong Kong with their killer robots, Pioneers 1 and 2. While Pioneer 1 looks like an oridinary robot, Pioneer 2 has been modelled on Maria, the gang's #2 thug. When Pioneer 2 gets damaged during a mission to kill an outcast gang member, an inventor on the police force takes her and changes some of her programming. This new code, plus a few injuries to her logic center, start causing Pioneer 2 to develop her own personality. Written by Jean-Marc Rocher <rocher@fiberbit.net>

Major COOL
3 April 2003 | by See all my reviews

Martial arts action with robots. It's like a live action anime from Hong Kong. Strong plot, strong story, cool robots.

ON A SCALE OF 1-10 (10 BEING BEST)

I GIVE "I LOVE MARIA"

9 1/2 STARS

ON THE POSITIVE SIDE (+ SIDE)

1) COOL STORY (It never wavered)

2) COOL ROBOTS (Perfect designed)

3) LIKEABLE HUMAN CHARACTERS (The lead characters are very funny and likeable)

ON THE NEGATIVE SIDE (- SIDE)

1) NO DUBBED VERSION (It only has subtitles and that gets in the way of watching the story)
