A film that I would imagine most HK cinema fans will have seen at some point, for some reason its one I never got around to. I saw the films trailer on another dvd, and it is absolutely fantastic, it sells the film perfectly and its easy to see why the movie found its audience. Produced to cash in on the success of Basic Instinct, this movie adds a distinctly Hong Kong flavour to that films excess and the result is much predictably much more fun.
|Didn't want to much to be on show but anyone who has seen the film will know what this is!|
Simon Yam, Carrie Ng and Chingmy Yau star in this sex and violence packed romp, its a fun ride that hits all the right notes for its target audience. The action scenes are handled quite nicely, and plenty of skin is on show, although it is a little more coy than I was expecting.
Simon Yam, ever the professional no matter what the film is, tries hard to add some depth to the thin character he is given, and he receives pretty good back up from regular Milkyway image comic foil Hui Siu Hung, although I'm not at all sure about the sequence with the sausages!
Naked killer really belongs to the girls, with Carrie Ng vamping it up to eleven, she is great in the action scenes and handles everything else with gusto! Including her lesbian scenes with her killer partner Baby, played by Sugawara Madoka, who provides the only real nudity in the movie. Chingmy Yau looks as stunning as ever and although she never really convinces as a killer, she does okay in her action scenes, and did I mention she looks amazing!
Clarence Fok may not be the best director in the world, but he manages with the help of his crew, not least the cinematographer Peter Pau, to make this film look incredible for the money it must have cost, with locations, production design and some outlandish outfits combining with the beautiful cast to make this look like a really expensive production. I can't imagine anyone who seeks this film out, not finding something to enjoy in its sheer trashiness.
Next up on my Category III odyssey is The Story of Ricky, then things will turn much darker as I have Taxi hunter, The untold story and Dr. Lamb all on the way, will I be able to stand the Cat III horror ? Stay tuned....
