Movie Reviews

Not quite horror, not quite comedy, not quite action... not

"We're Going To Eat You starts off strong, showing the arrival of two men to a secluded tropical island only to be captured and butchered in grisley fashion by a group of bloodthirsty canibals (as if there were any other kind right?). Shortly thereafter we're introduced to our main protagonists who also arrive on the island via raft, albeit for different reasons. Norman Chu plays "Agent 999" (think Indiana Jones with a black belt) who has arrived in pursuit of an infamous thief (Eddy Ko), while Kwok-Choi Han plays a drifter/criminal looking for somewhere new to dissapear to for awhile. From here on the movie tries to cram elements of comedy, exploitation, horror and kung fu together, but never ends up finding a way to get it to work completely. The movie has it's spots where you almost think it's found it's mark... but then all of a sudden something comes out of nowhere (like an escape on roller-skates?!) and sends it right back off the tracks. Easily the most well executed of the genre-elements cobbled together here is the martial arts. Choreographed by a young Corey Yuen (The Invincible Armour, The Transporter), he's able to work in some fairly exciting and busy action sequences that pit one or two characters against a nearly endless cleaver-wielding canibal horde. In the directors chair for the film is none other than Tsui Hark (Seven Swords, Once Upon A Time In China 1-3)in only his second attempt at moviemaking... thankfully he got better (and is a personal favorite of mine). Also known by the far more fitting title, Kung Fu Canibals, We're Going To Eat You just isn't nearly outrageous or fun enough to make it a must watch, unless of course you're a Tsui Hark junkie that wants to see his entire catalog at least once (which is what got me here...). The DVD from Tokyo Shock is pretty good with a decent widescreen transfer and clean readable subtitles, although the "special features" are anything but special and include a stills gallery (why?) and trailers for some other DVD releases."
Very very ....... surprised !!!

"Wanted tu buy myself a dvd, was searching on amazon for a movie.Since i owne almost every zombie/italien movie, i tried to find something new, something that i mist.I had never heard of this movie befor i baught it and i was expecting nothing out of it.I am i big fan of itchi the killer,
wild zero & the story of ricki`o` and i wanted to find something in the same genre. As soon as this movie started i knew i was in for a treat !! this movie was very funny & discuting.I would says its a mixt of kong-foo - gore - commedy.+ part of the score is from dario argentos susperia (i think i heard some other familiar stuff in their but cant figure out wath movies i heard other parts of the score). very happy i found this movie"
