Movie Info

Following up on his debut outing Butterfly Killers, Tsui Hark spins this gory and controversial cannibal crime flick. The film opens with Agent #999 (Norman Tsui Siu-keung) being sent to a remote island to apprehend wanted criminal Rolex (Melvin Wong Kam-sum). Of course, the island is largely inhabited by crazed, blood-thirsty man-eaters who want little more than to gnaw on human bones and devour human brains. 999 barely escapes with his life after a foolhardy jaunt to the local slaughterhouse. Meanwhile, Rolex is desperate to leave the island himself but cannot because of the tribe's deranged boss known only as "the Chief" (Eddy Ko Hung). The criminal eventually finds the cop assigned to arrest him, hoping to join forces and escape this hell of half-eaten corpses. When Rolex gets felled by the Chief, 999 must figure out how to escape by himself. ~ Jonathan Crow, Rovi

Critic Reviews for We're Going to Eat You

All Critics (1)

It's a kung fu party, a loopy comedy, a gore flick, and a slap-your-forehead acid trip at the same time.

Audience Reviews for We're Going to Eat You


Crazy action-comedy-horror from Hong Kong about a village full of cannibals who trap and butcher travellers to satisfy their cravings for human flesh. A bizarre mix of cannibalism, kung-fu and slapstick humour with each of these elements having varied success. There's a bit of gore but not enough for my liking. The fight scenes are decent enough but lack the fast-paced excitement of a Jet Li or Jackie Chan flick. It's funny at times but no real laugh out loud moments. A good fun and unique film overall, check it out.
