YesAsia Editorial Description
Middle-aged superheroes "Jiong Jiong Xia" (who shoots deadly lightning from his eyes) Nie Huan (Louis Koo) and "Xiang Xiang Xia" (who wields aromatic weapons of mass destruction) Xiaohong (Sandra Ng) have grown tired of their life of violence. After getting married, the super-couple decides to retire from the martial world altogether and live in seclusion in a remote village. At first, they are happy to waste their superpowers on the mundane household chores. But after a few years, they're nearly bored to death by the uneventful life that should belong to ordinary folks. So when they hear that the upcoming Martial World Assembly is going to be held in their very village, both of them are itching to make their long-awaited comeback!

Professional Review of "Mr. & Mrs. Incredible (DVD-9) (DTS Version) (China Version)"
This professional review refers to Mr. & Mrs. Incredible (DVD) (Hong Kong Version)
Mr. and Mrs. Incredible delivers a premise you probably didn't ask for: superheroes in Ancient China! However, instead of fighting crime and saving the world, these heroes muddle through their retired married life. If that sounds super exciting to you then you're in luck. If not, then get in line, because from this angle a superhero movie about mid-life marriage blues makes about as much sense as South Park in 3D. Then again, they used a similar premise in Pixar's The Incredibles, so it's not like this couldn't work, and director Vincent Kok has handled the character meets comedy thing quite well before. So is Mr. and Mrs. Incredible a triumph instead of trash?
Best answer: it's something squarely in between, and which direction it leans depends on what you're looking for. Calling this film a "superhero movie" is problematic, because that genre classification promises a level of screen excitement that Mr. and Mrs. Incredible never approaches. There’s little awe in seeing what Gazer Warrior (Louis Koo) and Aroma Woman (Sandra Ng) do with their superpowers; outside of save pets, stop robbers and generally be good role models, they mostly putter around their home and recall their first throes of romance. As the story goes, both were superheroes who went on a super date and before long, they got super married and became a super family with super household chores and super seven year-itch. It could be your dream superhero film. Let's see Christopher Nolan top this bad boy!
I'm not selling this film well because it's not easy to sell to everyone. Mr. and Mrs. Incredible just doesn't create the excitement one expects from a "superhero film," and thus it's hard to recommend on those grounds. What makes it a likeable and even worthy film is the chemistry between the stars, and also their relationship, which is both charming and surprisingly believable. Louis Koo and Sandra Ng have one of those playful marriages that, when portrayed correctly onscreen, is relaxing and enjoyable to witness. The risk to this sort of character dynamic is when the actors behave in a saccharine and overly cute manner, with hives and gagging usually being the audience response. Thankfully, that's not the case here; Koo plays a bit older than his actual age while Ng is her usual dependable self, and the two present their union in an enjoyable and genuine-seeming way. .
Koo and Ng’s pairing resembles the marriage between Stephen Chow and Carina Lau in Vincent Kok's 1996 action-comedy Forbidden City Cop - a generous comparison as the Chow-Lau relationship in Cop was a high point in a film already filled with them. However, in Cop those scenes amounted to probably less than 20% of the film. In Mr. and Mrs. Incredible, the interplay between Koo and Ng measures out to a good 60% of what happens. That's a whole lot of wandering around the kitchen or wondering what's for dinner. Here's where you jump on or off the bandwagon: if you like the idea of seeing Louis Koo and Sandra Ng engaging in situation comedy while sometimes playing superhero on the side, then Mr. and Mrs. Incredible is the movie for you. If you crave superhero action or visual effects-enhanced period costume shenanigans, Mr. and Mrs. Incredible will likely disappoint those expectations. Scratch that: it will disappoint those expectations.
Is that a problem? Again, not really. Even though Mr. and Mrs. Incredible doesn’t fit the superhero movie mold, it does deliver some genre fun. While Gazer Warrior and Aroma Woman fight and fume over a possible interloper, a martial arts tourney is going on in the background. The competition is supposedly friendly, except the megalomaniacal Baixao (Wang Bo-Chieh of Bodyguards and Assassins) has plans to subvert the competition and rule jiang hu with powers collected from other clan leaders. The whole thing gets resolved with a CGI-enhanced martial arts ending that’s similar to many early nineties Hong Kong movies, right down to the liberal overacting and wide angle lensing. The nostalgic genre fun kicks things up a couple of notches, and helps to compensate for the film's generally languid pacing for the first two acts. It takes awhile for Mr. and Mrs. Incredible to get going, but once it does the result isn't bad. Those looking for something extraordinary may be unimpressed, but those looking for something pleasant and likable - and who happen to like Louis Koo and Sandra Ng - may find this a good match. Like many commercial films, this one really comes down to the stars.

This customer review refers to Mr. & Mrs. Incredible (DVD) (Hong Kong Version)
Easy to watch, hard to define
The marketers of "Mr. & Mrs. Incredible" must have had a great challenge in deciding how to sell this movie. Is it a superhero movie set in ancient China? A martial arts comedy? Or something entirely different? The truth is that "Mr. & Mrs. Incredible", at its heart, is a quite charming romantic comedy.
Gazer Warrior (Louis Koo) and Aroma Woman (Sandra Ng) are martial arts superheroes, fighting evildoers and righting wrongs. Gazer Warrior gains fame from taking down the villainous Pest Gang (a very silly take-off on the Venoms), while Aroma Woman saves damsels in distress from nasty brutes. When these super-do-gooders meet, it is love at first sight. Soon they decide to leave their superhero personas and superpowers behind and live a quiet married life together in a remote village.
Fast forward ten years and the couple, now known as Flint and Rouge, remain blissfully in love living out their simple existence. But there is one thing missing from their lives: an offspring. The pair seeks help from the local quack doctor and adopt his goofy ideas for successful procreation. However, before those efforts come to fruition, a martial arts tournament comes to town that will turn their lives upside down. One of the martial artists, Grandmaster Blanc (Wang Bo Chieh), employs a special technique to suck the mastery out of the other competitors and into himself. When Gazer Warrior and Aroma Woman seek to save the day, Grandmaster Blanc turns the tables on them and seeks to gain their powers, too.
The action sequences at the beginning and end of the film may have been the drawing card for many viewers, but those scenes really are beside the point. What makes "Mr. & Mrs. Incredible" such a delight is the tremendous and touching chemistry between Louis Koo and Sandra Ng, which proves to be very funny and surprisingly romantic. Watching them work their 'incredible' magic makes this film a very pleasant evening's entertainment.
