Naked Killer (Chik loh go yeung) (1995)
Critic Reviews for Naked Killer (Chik loh go yeung)
The ultimate guilty pleasure, unrepentently sleazy and endlessly fun.
Bad subtitles, lesbian contract killers and an impotent cop. Not much more you could ask for in a movie.
A genuine crowd-pleaser, it's a far cry from Tsui Hark's more sedate historical epics of late, relying instead on bullets, breasts, and bloody mayhem to move the 90-mile-a-second plot line along.
Audience Reviews for Naked Killer (Chik loh go yeung)
A bit cheesy, a bit erotic, and a bit unbelivable. This picture reminded me of another film "Vertigo". "Naked Killer" is entertaining and photographed beautifully.
That wonderful coward Simon Yam hams it up again in this amazing Cat III film. This time, if he so much as sees a gun, he pukes. Awesome.?Pretty much everything there is to love about Cat III films is in here. Inappropriate humour, scantily clad ladies, bizarre sexual situations, shocking violence and nihilism. Oh, and blue lighting. Lots of blue lighting.?A must see.
A young woman's botched attempt to kill the gangster who murdered her father leads to her being taken in by the leader of a ring of female assassins. The obvious selling point to this HK action movie upon its release was the promise of gratuitous nudity by the stunning Chingmy Yau and company, but the fact is the whole softcore porn element is really rather tame; the story is very exploitative (beautiful female assassins in various states of undress brutally dispatching evil, lecherous men) but it's actually rather technically accomplished for an exploitation flick. The action, particularly the Woo-style gun battles are well choreographed, it's all photographed quite attractively and there are some very nicely framed shots of pretty set design and sexy outfits with some nice use of colour. The plot is nonsense of course, but not much more ridiculous than the average action flick and the story has quite a romantic core at its centre. More live action manga than exploitation, it's a visually pleasing HK action film with plenty of eye candy that has dated surprisingly well.
