Yep...it's butt-whippin' time!
26 March 2014 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

The Masked Prosecutor is a very strange film from Hong Kong. It features a very strange story where folks who were able to somehow avoid justice in the courts are soon captured and punished by a masked man. This vigilante wears a Chinese-style mask and leather full trench coat— and has almost magical powers (plus he has a GREAT fashion sense). The masked man then tortures the evil-doers and beats their buttocks with a cane sword—inflicting horrible scars. Then, he tosses the victims out of his car as he passes a police station—and the evil-doers are thrilled to see the police!

Now the plot MIGHT sound like it's a kinky film. Rest assured that is isn't. Apart from a few scenes showing bloody butts, I cannot imagine anyone deriving sexual gratification from the movie, as it is making a serious attempt to both entertain and make a statement. One clear statement I got was that feelings in the average person for such justice are pretty much universal—whether it's in communist China (like where this film was made), Japan or anywhere else. Here in the States, we've had a few films with similar themes—though they weren't done as well nor as stylishly as The Masked Prosecutor. In fact, this is the big reason I really liked this movie—it was very exciting, has some really nice action sequences and really appealed to a desire in most of us to administer severe butt-whippings (or worse) to folks who flaunt justice.
