The Heroic Trio (1993)
Reviewed by: Trigger on 2001-05-13
Summary: Hyped up nothing...
I'm alone in thinking this film was bad I guess. I didn't like it much at all. I mean unless you are stimulated enough by the idea of getting to see Maggie Cheung, Anita Mui, and Michelle Yeoh - this film has little else to offer. There were a few scenes that made this film worth viewing, but the rest of it was either nauseatingly dull or else so poorly executed that it made me wish I was watching something else. The story left much to be desired and some of the wire work was pitiful. The ending had some great effects and clever ideas, but it's really a tough call whether the ending was cool enough to carry the rest of the film out of dullsville. I don't understand the love for this film... but then again I didn't much care for the first Chinese Ghost Story either. I didn't hate Heroic Trio, but there's just so many better HK films out there that this one doesn't deserve so much positive attention.
