YesAsia Editorial Description

Independent Hong Kong actor-director Sam Leong's tenacious Tournament film series takes a turn into sci-if with its seventh installment. Dr. Leung is committed to research on injecting animal genes into plants and vegetables. He hopes that this research into plant resistance can help solve the problem of world hunger. Researcher James accidentally discovers that Dr. Leong's research prototype DX29 generates severe side effects in plants. It changes the plants' self-defense mechanisms and transforms them into mutant creatures that attack humans. James wants to stop this potential disaster, but he suddenly disappears. Soon, there are reports of people getting attacked and killed by a wild animal. Police detective Leong and forensic expert Jenny team up to investigate the incidents, and they suspect that the culprit is a mutant beast.

At least we still have Tournament films
Do you want to see a movie that opens with a biblical quote, followed by a scene of a mutated cabbage bloodily attacking someone? Tournament 7 is for you!

Independent Hong Kong filmmaker Sam Leong's Tournament series has been one of my cinematic guilty pleasures of the last few years. In this day and age of Hong Kong cinema, there's just something wonderful about a self-produced, low-budget film series regularly churning out new installments, and also putting them on DVD. The low-rent action films run the gamut of genres from one installment to another – underground boxing, triad drama, family melodrama, revenge drama, social drama and now sci-fi gore, all with varying degrees of Christian film undertones. The Tournament films are all written, produced and directed by Sam "Sam Gor" Leong, who also stars. Owing to his background as a Muay Thai teacher, action in Tournament films is usually solid and straightforward, if not particularly spectacular.

Tournament 7 is my favorite of the series so far, because it goes into flat-out over-the-top territory. A sketchy scientist creates a DX-29 vaccine using animal genes with the professed goal of improving the defensive mechanism of plants and thus eliminating famine. However, it turns out that organisms injected with DX-29 mutate and attack. People start getting mauled to death and Inspector Leong is put on the case. After playing competing dual roles in Tournament 3, Leong takes on a whole bunch of characters in Tournament 7, including the evil scientist, the righteous cop and various victims and monsters. It's Sam Gor vs. Sam Gor vs. Sam Gor. This is how you save money!

The film starts out with a sci-fi investigative suspense tone, and soon veers into good old blood-spurting gore and grossness. Leong did zombies before with SARS Zombies and Lady Z, but Tournament 7 revels more in a campy, gruesome excess that vaguely reminds of old Shaw Brothers shockers. The film has a few surprisingly stomach-churning moments that lend genre cred.

Sam Leong's films exist outside of both commercial and artistic sensibilities. There are no name actors and no apparent mainstream industry involvement. They're not artistic efforts – none of them are remotely good or pretentious enough to play a fest – but they're also seriously made with an old-school tone. The stilted dialogue, cliched stories, sappy ballads, amateur acting and occasional proselytizing may generate unintentional laughs or groans but, at least for an over-the-top film like Tournament 7, Sam Gor is clearly in on the joke and camp. I'm really not sure who watches Sam Gor films besides me, but please keep them coming.
