Fantasy Mission Force has to be one of the most bizarre movies I've seen. It's not often I'm gobsmacked after watching a movie but I was after seeing this. Actually I would ask Asian movie fans to watch this because it's something you've got to experience......just have a couple of beers first before you do and don't try to make any sense from the plot because you won't be able to!!
stars Jackie Chan, Brigitte Lin, Yu Wang, David Tao, Shiu Bu Lia, Ling Chang, Yueh Sun and Adam Cheng.
directed by Yen-ping Chu.
The first time that I watched Fantasy Mission Forced I was so very confused. What is Abe Lincoln doing in WW2?, and what is the deal with the script. This film is so odd and wacky that it is funny. Jackie Chan is not the main character, but is in most of the important scenes in the film. All I can say is that the "Nazis" in this film drive cars from the 80's, riding on the top waving torches around their heads. If your drunk then this movie will make sense, or if you just want to confuse someone to no end. Pure quality.
For the first 15 minutes I don't think I stopped laughing once. I laughed so much that my body hurt. The only other movie that is anywhere close to this much fun is Tarkan vs. the Vikings but that movie is different. This is much more zany. It's like the 3 stooges meets scooby doo meets low budget kung fu meets musical. I would pay good money for a digitally remastered version that doesn't pan & scan just to see what else is happening in these scenes.
The story, if you can call it that, is so completely ridiculous that I don't even want to try and explain it because I might spoil it for you. You'll just have to see it to find out. I highly recommend buying this movie. Once you see it you'll want a copy for yourself so do what I did and buy it first.
