YesAsia Editorial Description

Touted as China's first big sci-fi film, Kungfu Cyborg: Metallic Attraction actually squeezes many more genres into its loaded storyline. It's also a martial arts actioner, a buddy cop comedy, a romantic comedy, a melodrama, and a special effects robot fight-off! The latest from director Jeff Lau, who showed he could mesh genres like no other in the Stephen Chow classic A Chinese Odyssey, Kungfu Cyborg is set in a near future where state-of-the-art robots have been developed by the government, but one particular robot decides to challenge the authority of its creators.

Alex Fong Lik Sun (I Corrupt All Cops) takes on his biggest role to date as a cyborg cop whose abilities to fight and love are tested. Acclaimed actor Hu Jun (Red Cliff) makes a rare comedic appearance as his reluctant partner, and romantic rival for the hand of Betty Sun (Painted Skin). Supporting players Ronald Cheng, Eric Tsang, Law Ka Ying, and Gan Wei furnish more laughs, but the kung-fu part of the title is taken care of by action director Yuen Tak (Fong Sai Yuk, Swordsman II) and martial arts star Wu Jing (Legendary Assassin) as a too cool rogue robot. The impressive animation and special effects that went into creating the film's battling robots and inventive action scenes have earned Kungfu Cyborg: Metallic Attraction comparisons to Transformers.

Built by the state to fight crime, coifed super cyborg K-1 (Alex Fong) is stationed in the countryside under the supervision of self-righteous cop Dachun (Hu Jun), who's less than thrilled about the arrangement. Dachun wants to be the hero, not baby-sit a robot, especially one that shows him up and starts making eyes at his long-time crush, policewoman Su Mei (Betty Sun). What Dachun and Su Mei don't know, however, is that K-1's program doesn't allow him to love. Amid the romantic scheming, dangerous rogue cyborg K-88 (Wu Jing) suddenly rolls into town.

  上帝造人,人造機器;人能懷疑上帝,機器人為什麼不能懷疑人?

  西元2046年。高科技正不斷改變人類的習慣,同時也更新著人類的慾望。於是,為人類服務的機器人應運而生。

  第一代人工智慧機器人,代號K-1,在天安科研局的秘密研製下橫空出世,目的是為代替警察執行危機任務,以保障執法人員的安全。為了測試性能,局長林祥決定派它到一個偏遠的小鎮實習,並由當地的警察隊長徐大春秘密監管。

  K-1以“德明”的身份加入警局,立刻大顯神通,成為破案神手。由於體內有完美的社交程式,德明很快就成了小鎮上的人氣偶像,而女警素梅也對他芳心暗許,讓一直暗戀素梅的大春鬱悶不已。大春看不起德明只是個機器,二“人”明爭暗鬥,笑話百齣。

  德明與大春受命追擊智慧系統出現偏差的機器人K-88,一番上天入地、七十二變的高科技機器人大戰後,K-88道出他叛逃的原因是“要自由、不想永遠做一部機器”,並痛斥德明為“電子奴隸”。大春深受震撼。為保護德明,也為維護人類的尊嚴,大春奮不顧身的撲向K-88……

Professional Review of "Kungfu Cyborg: Metallic Attraction (DVD) (China Version)"

October 12, 2009

This professional review refers to Kungfu Cyborg: Metallic Attraction (DVD) (Hong Kong Version)
With so many Chinese films still being called Kung Fu something or other, and with the continuing global success of Michael Bay's blockbuster Transformers franchise, Kung Fu Cyborg: Metallic Attraction was pretty much inevitable. The Hong Kong director getting in on the act is none other than Jeffrey Lau, who previously had hits with the likes of A Chinese Tall Story and the classic Stephen Chow A Chinese Odyssey vehicles. Perhaps unsurprisingly given Lau's predilection for the mass mixing of genres, although the film's advertising suggested non-stop brawling robots, he delivers something quite different, backed by a top cast of Hong Kong and Mainland stars and some boisterously over the top special effects. The film follows Alex Fong (recently in the excellent I Corrupt all Cops) as K-1, a state built cyborg who for no discernable reason is sent by his creator (the inimitable Eric Tsang in a small role) to the countryside to partner a small town cop called Dachun (Hu Jun, Red Cliff). Strangely enough, instead of bringing down crime in the area, the robot immediately makes a beeline for Su Mei (Betty Sun. also in Painted Skin), who just happens to be the unrequited love of poor Dachun's life. Despite K-1 having a bizarre Elvis style hairdo and plastic looking skin, reminiscent of Jude Law in Spielberg's A.I. (though a gag reveals that he was designed to resemble Andy Lau), Su Mei responds to his affections, not knowing that falling in love will cause him to self-destruct. Meanwhile K-88 (current martial arts hotshot Wu Jing) a rogue combat cyborg, shows up, intent on causing trouble and introducing K-1 to the concept of robot rights.

It becomes very clear very quickly that Kung Fu Cyborg: Metallic Attraction is not taking the expected route, and that its odd, convoluted title is a pretty accurate reflection of its wacky content. Despite its potentially action packed premise of a robot joining the police, after some bizarre initial exposition, it throws the viewer straight into a vaguely inappropriate love triangle between K-1, Su Mei and Dachun, without so much as a hint of character back story or motivation. Just as the viewer is settling into this rather odd plot direction, after around an hour or so, out of nowhere the film suddenly explodes into transformation sequences and robot fighting. The CGI effects are actually quite good, and although the bombastic set pieces are still played partly for gags, the choreography by action director Yuen Tak (who worked on such classics as Fong Sai Yuk and Swordsman II) is solid, and they work well enough to inject some thrills and excitement and proceedings.

Unsurprisingly, Lau directs with his usual scattershot style, and the film is characterised by its oddball tonal shifts, leaping from eccentric romance to action and comedy, and, even more unbelievably, to straight drama which sees him trying to comment on the nature of love and what it means to be alive. This is perhaps only to be expected from Lau's everything but the kitchen sink brand of film making, and although the film is pretty incomprehensible at times, it is arguably all the more fun and enjoyable for it. The final act in particular comes with some very leftfield plot developments and an effects heavy cyber rumble that is admirably far out, even by his standards, before capping things off with some entirely undeserved tugs at the heart strings and an amusingly rushed mock-philosophical message. This does make for some very wacky viewing, and whether intentional or not, the comedy is generally funny, if a touch mean spirited at times as Dachun tries his best to undermine K-1. There are a good few surreal jokes, with the robot's head turning into a tin opener, a can of sardines, and finally a giant ass - all very low brow, but humorous enough.

As such, for all its being mooted as a Chinese version of Transformers, Kung Fu Cyborg: Metallic Attraction is basically a Jeffrey Lau film with a bigger budget than usual and an even wilder, looser sense of creativity. This is arguably in its favour, as it delivers something unpredictable and pleasingly different to the norm, and the film is entertaining and lively, particularly for those viewers who don't require too much in the way of logic or sense.

Not quite what I hoped for Customer Review Rated Bad 2 - 2 out of 10
I love Betty Sun. And she's as cute as ever in this movie. But gosh, what a let down. Sure, the name says it all: it's about Kung Fu fighting Cyborgs. But the whole "human-machine romance" was tepid at best. There's more spark in a typical Power Rangers episode. Needs more of everything.
