Realistic reflection of corrupted bureacracy via sarcasm
19 November 2003 | by See all my reviews

When the Engineer from Hei Pao Shi Jian (1986) got promoted, he was stocked with endless meetings that were meaningless. To free himself from this problem, he made a robotic duplica of himself.

What the Engineer did not realize was that these meetings were also the breeding ground of corruption. Soon his robotic duplica was drawn to the world of bribery and kickback, and when the engineer realized this, it was too late, and he had to destroy the robot in order to end all of these.

The film shows the criticism of the corrupted and inefficient bureaucracy and even though it was made more than one and half decade ago, the problem depicted still applies to current situation of China.
