Trivia

Andy Hui's character, Kei-on is a combination of two characters from Japanese Comic, Doreamon, which are Suneo (where Andy Hui gets the weird hairstyle and wealthy background) and Giant (in the Cantonese version of Doreamon, Giant is called Kei-on and he is a big bully). Dicky Cheung's character is also a reference to Doraemon's main character Nobita (Cantonese version is called Dai-hung, always a bully victim of Giant and Suneo), and Charlie Yeung's character is obviously refers to Shizuka (Nobita's love interest in Doraemon). In fact, in the film there is also a reference to Doraemon comic. Once Hung discover the identity and ability of those three 'future cops' he exclaim that "it is just like Dai-hung (Nobita) has three Ding-dong (Doraemon's name in Cantonese) altogether!" See more »

arguably the most important film of the last million years
24 December 2012 | by See all my reviews

First of all, how did you even get here? If there's a movie made strictly for Chinese bootleggers, it's this one. You gotta go through some serious flashage to get a physical copy of this. Where do I even begin? Well, okay, I think the "official" plot synopsis is as good a place as any.

"In the year 2043, the notorious villain is about to be put on trial. His killers decide to go back 50 years by the time tunnel, and look for the judge in his youthful age. They want to program into the boy's mind and alternate his decision. However, the Future Cops follow. They infiltrate into a school and befriend with a slightly retarded boy, who is always insulted and bullied. Who knows he is in fact the judge in future?" I don't even know where to begin talking about this summary. "Who knows he is in fact the judge in future?" Well apparently EVERYONE, since you explicitly told us.

Basically, the awesomely titled Future Cops is a slapstick comedy pretending to be a sci-fi martial arts movie that follows the totally-not-copyright-violating adventures of not-Ryu, not-Guile, and not-Dhalsim from not-Street Fighter. They're from the future, you see. Curiously, even in 2043 (their year), they're called "future cops".

The jokes are like Marx Brothers on unknown illicit substances. Early on, a character mopes around a rooftop and throws a beer can out of anger. "What? Nothing returns?" he asks. Because in these types of comedies, whenever someone throws something, it always flies back and hits them in the head or something, get it? Then a giant human-sized beer can prop falls from the sky, crushing a table. "Hey, I threw a small one!" he yells at god or whoever. A lightning bolt strikes, but he manages to avoid; "you missed. So what?" Then a gust of wind blows him off the building. This is pretty postmodern stuff, folks.

Don't even try to make sense of anything. Between the overly long screwball gags, there's nothing but irrelevant little discourses, including shoehorned musical numbers hawking the vocal talent of the actors (several of them were minor Cantopop stars at the time, apparently). Actually, is there anything for the movie to discourse FROM? It's like the first truly absurdist/dada comedy. There's even this little Super Mario interlude where some of the characters "hop into" an arcade machine and have a surreal little not-Mario adventure, complete with overalls, discordant, not-quite-right Mario-esque music and not-koopas roaming around. It goes on for several minutes and is never referred to again.

I'm not gonna make a case for this being anything other than curio, a reflection of an industry at its most cheap and misguided, but time and cultural dissonance has seasoned it into something challenging and surreal for Western sensibilities. If you know anything about Chinese humor, you probably have a good idea of how painful this gets by the end. But to its credit, I was never bored--I was just sitting there completely baffled until the end. Some of it was even... funny? I think Future Cops gave me brain damage.
