Description

A sci-fi action film and gag filled comedy is about an improbable love triangle between washed out gangster Whiskey, put upon police scientist Curly, and a robot named Maria. The Hero gang has been terrorizing Hong Kong at will with their giant robot, Pioneer One. Bumbling reporter Ching attempts to track down the story, only to have his efforts thwarted at every turn by the police. Meanwhile Whiskey and Curly fall under suspicion from both their employers when they befriend each other during a bar fight. They flee, only to be hunted down by the Hero Gang’s latest robot, Pioneer Two. Modeled after the gang’s beautiful second in command, Maria (and intentionally resembling the Maria robot from Metropolis)the robot becomes damaged during it’s pursuit. Curly rebuilds her to aid him and his friends to clear their names, and spends the rest of the film battling Whiskey for her affections. (In order to issue her a command one must begin with “I love Curly”, much to Whiskeys annoyance.) This fun film epitomizes the “can do” attitude of 1980’s Hong Kong film making. The special effects may seem clumsy, but the earnest effort and shear joy of film making shows through. IMDB
