Part of Midnight Movies
See also: Sat, Mar 4’s Michelle Yeoh Triple Feature: EVERYTHING EVERYWHERE ALL AT ONCE (7:00pm) CROUCHING TIGER, HIDDEN DRAGON (9:40pm) and THE HEROIC TRIO (Midnight).
The supernova star power of Hong Kong cinema icons Michelle Yeoh (Academy Award® nominee for 2022’s EVERYTHING EVERYWHERE ALL AT ONCE), Maggie Cheung (IRMA VEP) and Anita Mui (Cantopop superstar-turned actress in kung-fu classics such as RUMBLE IN BRONX and THE LEGEND OF DRUNKEN MASTER) propels this gloriously unrestrained action extravaganza from genre maestro Johnnie To, which injects its martial-arts mayhem with a blast of comic-book lunacy. They are the knife-throwing, shotgun-toting, kung-fu-fighting super-heroines who must overcome their dark pasts in order to defeat an evil, baby-snatching eunuch who is terrorizing Hong Kong. Eye-popping motorcycle stunts, brain-exploding skeletons, infant cannibals, and kinetically choreographed wire work are all part of the delirium in this unstoppably entertaining cult favorite — a kickass showcase for three of the coolest women warriors to ever hit the screen.
