Movie Reviews

Real fun!
Markus Risser | Berlin, Deutschland | 03/07/2001
(3 out of 5 stars)

"When I first had the opportunity to watch this movie some years ago I had the 'treat' of a terribly dubbed (into German)'comedy' version filled with lame jokes and stupid gags adapted to German humour (or at least what the distributor thought it would be - for example John Shum's character had been dubbed "Inspector Loony"). Somehow, still, the movie survived the treatment (alas, it is a comedy, and a low-key one at some times) and I always had a special feeling for it."I love Maria", like so many HK-movies, has a somehow confusing plot, several great action scenes, some very funny moments of cartoon-styled humour and some nice FX work (I prefer the special FX of "I love Maria" over those of "RoboCop"). Sally Yeh (of "The Killer" fame) gives a great performance (love that robot suit of hers), John Shum and Tsui Hark (the same) are funny to watch (I always liked Tsui Hark's excursions into acting).The DVD is not spectacular concerning sound and picture quality but adequate, the subtitles are clear to read; short biographies of the principal contributors are added as a small extra. If you're into HK-movies this should definitely be a part of your collection."
Wild Wild Robot Fun in Live Action

"BUY THIS MOVIE! 'I Love Maria' is a fun, fast live action sci-fi romp with a decidedly 'Anime' feel to it. The plot is cool, but doesn't really get in the way and the effects are state of the art! The acting is comedic (whether it's meant to be is a mystery) and worth watching. This a fun film, to watch with a large audience and LOTS of popcorn."
Tremendous, Awesome, Bravo!!

"With a blend of Sci-fi and traditional HK Art, this movie rocks. The movie features a plot that was not so much confsung as it was one that changed frequently. Sally Yeh who plays the cyborg is just as sweet as can be. Buy it you'll like it!"
