of slacker friends are forced to abandon their life of fantasy, games
and anime when a strange zombie outbreak infests their community. These
two heroes, Chi-Yeung and Lung, are a pair of 20-something nerds who think
of themselves as superheroes destined to save the world. But, in reality,
they are merely geeks with a negligible talent for crafting oddball weapons
from everyday objects and utilizing bizarre props from their Aunt's abandoned
Cantonese Opera theater. Their make-believe life is suddenly disrupted
when a zombie apocalypse erupts, an event caused by a giant chicken (!)
that lays exploding eggs. Armed only with makeshift weapons, the two young
men attempt to become real flesh-and-blood heroes.
is Alan Lo's first feature film and it's both mesmerizing and challenging.
The zombie action is swift and effective; the characters are endearing.
But filmmaker Lo forces the audience to play by his rules, to accept plot
points that would never fly in a traditional walking dead flick. He claims
the movie is based on a "Best Selling Cult Novel" but that appears
to be a lie, just another example of fantasy meshed with reality. The
viewer will either accept his whimsical mantra "Enjoy Yourself Tonight"
and have a great time. Or they will say "Fuck You" and shut
recommended examples of recent, exceptional Zombie projects (both World
Cult and Asian Cult Cinema) are: FLIGHT
OF THE LIVING DEAD, ZOMBIE
OF THE LIVING DEAD, I
AM HERO and (for fans of XXX fare) PORN
OF THE DEAD.
