A sleazy, stupid movie
14 November 2012 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

BODY WEAPON is a bizarre mix of the incredibly perverse and sleazy with the kind of dumb, slapstick humour better known from Hong Kong productions like the Lucky Stars series. It's a real oddity, and anything but an entertaining film. Sadly, Hong Kong Legends saw fit to release it under the pretence of it being a martial arts film, but action fans will be disappointed as the movie contains hardly any fight scenes.

Things kick off with an awful rape/murder sequence which was heavily cut by UK censors (having read about it, I can understand the thinking behind this piece of censorship). The villain is a sadistic guy in a gimp outfit, heavily indebted to that infamous scene in Tarantino's PULP FICTION, no doubt. Right away the film cuts from that to some light comedy among the police officers who make up the movie's leads, and half an hour goes by with the same kind of useless shenanigans and pointless drivel.

Then the film realises it's meant to be a thriller and throws in another rape scene, along with lots of unnecessary sex clearly designed for the purposes of titillation. By this stage, I was ready to turn it off, but as a completionist I waited out till the end. I wish I hadn't bothered: there are a few fight scenes thrown into the mix, but they're largely pointless and they certainly don't make up for the film's many deficits.

Chiu Man Chuh is heavily featured on the UK release but it soon becomes apparent that his role in the film is relatively minor, with much of the running time given over to newcomer Angie Cheung, whose acting is nothing to write home about. One unintentionally hilarious aspect of the film is the whodunit angle involving the main villain, which will be immediately obvious to all and sundry as soon as the guy is introduced without his suit on. The film also manages to be completely offensive to gay people in the process. Nope, nothing's going to get me to like this useless movie, a truly silly attempt to create something unsavoury which falls flat on its face from the outset.
