Plot

A group of terrorists used robots to dominate the world. An insane genius (John Sham) and an ex-member of the group Whisky (Tsui Hark) would succeed in taking the control of Maria, a robot who looks like Whisky childhood friend (Sally Yeh). Together, they fight against the terrorists..
 
  Review  

The original idea, a tribute to Fritz Lang's Metropolis, and the theme of the doubles (man/machine) were very promising. But this first step into the SF movie world wasn't as good as it could have been. A slow-paced action and a not very tight plot suggest that there were a lot of production difficulties. An old-fashioned music score and very rough special effects didn't help either. But this witty movie was a kind of embodiment of another conception of moviemaking.
