YesAsia Editorial Description

Hong Kong hitmaker Wong Jing teams up with superstar Andy Lau for the sci-fi action blockbuster Future X-Cops. Featuring state-of-the-art special effects by a South Korean special effects firm, the film is a rare Chinese entry in the ambitious time traveling science fiction sub-genre. Infused with exciting action sequences, Wong Jing's signature sense of humor, and a touching father-daughter story, Future X-Cops is entertaining genre fun for audiences of all ages.

Andy Lau leads the ensemble cast as Kidd, a cop in the year 2080 whose wife (Fan Bing Bing) is killed after a fierce attack by a group of terrorist led by Kalon (Fan Siu Wong). The terrorists are targeting Dr. Masterson (Ma Jing Wu), who has invented a new source of free energy, and they have decided to go back in time to kill Masterson when he was a child. Determined to stop the future from being changed, Kidd goes back in time with his daughter (Xu Jiao, CJ7) and becomes a policeman in the year 2020, alongside fellow cops Holly (Barbie Hsu, Connected) and Sergeant Ma (Mike He, Love at Seventh Sight). However, Kidd cannot form any relationship or reveal his real identity, even as Kalon and his gang arrive from the future to wreak havoc. Who will reach the young Dr. Masterson in time?

Professional Review of "Future X-Cops (Blu-ray) (Japan Version)"

July 15, 2010

This professional review refers to Future X-Cops (DVD) (Hong Kong Version)
Legendary Hong Kong writer, director and one man cinematic production line Wong Jing returns with Future X-Cops, a remake sequel of sorts to his 1993 cult trash classic Future Cops. Unsurprisingly, being very much a Wong Jing outing, the film is typically hard to classify, mixing in science fiction, action, romance, family melodrama and, of course, crude humour. The film is a bona fide stab at making a big budget Chinese blockbuster, with special visual effects from noted South Korean team Kinomotive and an all star cast headlined by the one and only Andy Lau, with support from the gorgeous Fan Bing Bing (Sophie's Revenge), Barbie Hsu (Connected), Mike He (Love at Seventh Sight) and young actress Xu Jiao (recently in Stephen Chow's CJ7).

The plot itself takes some swallowing. The film kicks off in the year 2080, with Andy Lau playing a cop called Kidd, who is entrusted with protecting scientist Dr. Masterson (Ma Jing Wu, Confucius), the inventor of a new, clean energy source. Unfortunately, although Kidd manages to save him from a group of genetically enhanced assassins, led by the evil Kalon (Fan Siu Wong, Ip Man 2), his own wife (Fan Bing Bing) dies in the process. When Kalon heads back in time to try and kill Masterson as a child, Kidd decides to follow, being transformed into a cyborg in the name of revenge. Arriving in the year 2020, and bringing his daughter (Xu Jiao) along for the ride, he assumes the role of a kind policeman, keeping his real identity and powers secret from fellow cops Holly (Barbie Hsu) and Sergeant Ma (Mike He) as he searches for the young Masterson. Soon enough, Kalon and his goons show up, leaving a trail of destruction behind them as they too try to track down the future scientist to be.

With Wong Jing as writer and director, although this synopsis may sound vaguely straightforward, Future X-Cops is very prone to weird tangents and needless subplots as he tries to cram in a little of pretty much every genre imaginable. As such, the film leaps around in amusingly chaotic fashion, beginning with futuristic action before diving headfirst into superhero shenanigans and childish comedy, then to bizarre romance as Kidd and Holly form a hilariously strained relationship, before finally finishing up with an avalanche of near surreal action. Of course, this is only to be expected from Wong Jing, and although borderline incoherent at times, the film is certainly never dull, and manages to keep viewers watching. The film's jokes are a variable bunch, throwing in the expected pop culture references and slapstick toilet humour alongside a few rather baffling gags, which do translate into a few genuine laughs - though it has to be said that most of the film's considerable amusement factor is somewhat less intentional. Indeed, it's difficult to keep a straight face during the last third, as Wong Jing throws in all manner of odd twists and ill-conceived tugs at the heart strings, none of which are effective in a traditional manner, but all of which certainly entertain.

Strangely, despite the effort that apparently went into them, the same can be said of the special effects, most of which are howlingly substandard and make for some comically cringe worthy scenes. The sight of Andy Lau's face superimposed on a cheap looking robotic body is one that really needs to be seen to be believed, as do a series of stupefyingly illogical and random effects based sequences - including a scene in which Lau and Fan Siu Wong's wicked but idiotic villain go through lengthy transformations, only to emerge slightly bigger. Ching Siu Tung's choreography is as solid as ever and really gives the film a boost and a far slicker feel than it perhaps deserves. The film does pack in plenty of action, in particular towards the end, and this helps to keep things moving along at a decent clip, and possibly to distract some of the more bemused members of the audience from the overall lack of sense.

As a result, though undeniably a bit of a mess, and very much in the Wong Jing style, Future X-Cops is a lot of fun, especially for those with a fondness for nonsense. Whilst much of its entertainment factor may not be intentional, this is arguably neither here nor there, and the film manages considerably more laughs and enjoyment than many other more straight faced efforts of late, and at the very least, can surely be seen as a worthy follow up to the original Future Cops.
