Holy Weapon? Holy Moley!
17 August 1999 | by (Lexington, KY) – See all my reviews

An employee at my favorite video store in town has a more, er, colorful title (a far more crude way of saying "Holy Fecal Matter!") written on the box of this film - & you'll be saying it to yourself a few minutes into this exceedingly strange & wonderful piece of Hong Kong lunacy. It's utter madness from start to finish.

I've seen this movie twice & I still am not sure what it's about - within the first ten minutes you see men battling each other on the backs of men with wings. I have yet to see a movie come out of America, without digital effects, that so much resembles a comic book in its ideas & style. It's so much fun.

Both Maggie Cheung & Michelle Yeoh (two-thirds of the Heroic Trio) are in this, & if those Hong Kong lovelies aren't enough, let me just say this: people I know have watched this while doing certain illegal substances & found new insights into their lives, but I have watched it stone-cold sober & felt like I had been tripping for hours afterwards.
