Plot ( as if that would matter): In the year 2043, a notorious villain is about to be put on trial. His minions decide to go back 50 years in time and look for the judge in his teens , or twens-I forgot about his age…. They want to program the boy’s mind and alter his decision. (Damn, that`s stupid)
The FUTURE COPS follow them to 1993.
Well, well…so I was looking for a a film, that would be able to distract me good, cuz today I just felt low. I went for Asian Cinema, as I haven`t seen a Hong Kong movie in some time.
Still I had trouble picking one.
But then I came across FUTURE COPS, and it was obvious, that this one ripped off characters from Street Fighter. I liked the idea of an action comedy that featured these characters. I read a bit about the movie, and I learned , that not only does it have Street Fighter characters in it, but also adding some Dragonball and Super Mario into it.
Trying to say more about the plot or story isn`t necessary, it doesn`t matter..it really doesn`t.
This is a movie to be enjoyed for being so over the top and cartoonish,as only Asians can make èm. The jokes never stop, it’s a really fast pace and you may find yourself stumbling from one hard laugh into the next. You see actors, you may know better in serious action roles or even drama, but these guys can do everything, and aren`t afraid of cheap jokes and fancy-borderline-gay costumes.
It`s just a lot of fun, what can I say… and the trailer here,is only a small taste of the laughing medicine that is
FUTURE COPS – A must-see in my book from today on!!!
You should be able to find a DVD of it here:
