Movie Summary
This science fiction-thriller from Hong Kong attempts to blend the grittiness of oir-ish Blade Runner-type cyberpunk with the sweeping plot lines of animé to rather confusing effect. The story revolves around the legendary Diamond of Emperor Chen, which -- aside from its considerable inherent value -- is also a key which will lead the person who possesses it to incredible wealth, supposedly half the wealth in the world. The diamond rests somewhere in the offices of the corrupt mega-corporation Tung Tik, and the film deals with the efforts of a group of thieves led by the brilliant computer hacker Ko Kit (Anita Yuen) to get it. Theres also another thief, Wind Yip (Sharla Cheung), who has penetrated the companys extensive security system in search of the diamond, and she teams up with Ko Kits gang while being pursued all the while by the obligatory dissolute alcoholic cop, Kwong (Simon Yam). Filmed partially in Vancouver, the films ambitions overreach its budget, but the impressive cast (also includingKirk Wong and the films director Chris Lee) and offbeat presentation make it worthwhile viewing for genre fans. ~ Robert Firsching, All Movie Guide
