If you can handle the torrent of grisly violence, you'll find yourself royally entertained by this Hong Kong actioner.
A rather astonishing, starkly stylized blood flood set inside a privatized prison.
A wild martial arts feature that combines a prison movie setting with the sort of gore effects one normally finds in a horror film.
Gore galore but not much more.
You should have been running to the video store before you got to this sentence.
Apart from Ichi the Killer, it is the only live-action film ever to capture the anarchic, excessive, highly stylised violence of manga.
Nam ... delivers an amusing and exceedingly cinematic comic-book phantasmagoria.
It may be a grateful attempt at being a visually advanced film at its time (which could be humorous and entertaining once you really get to think about it) the film does no good and ends up looking like a parody, or rather a slapstick of a martial arts film. Ricky-oh: the Story of Ricky is just as predictable and effortless as the effects and misdirections portrayed in the film. 1/5
Absurdly over the top violence plus hilariously ridiculous dramatization and the result is quite a fun movie
The Story of Ricky is so ridiculous that to begin criticizing or trying to explain it would almost be missing the point. An entirely entertaining martial arts movie, this movie is so ridiculously graphic and over the top. The dubbing is hysterical to the point where an admittedly very androgynous woman (the one that looked like the guy from Human League) is given a man's voice. And once the Chinese Hulk shows up the brilliance and utter stupidity smash through the ceiling. So much entertaining nonsense you won't be able to stand it.
