Campy Hong Kong action Sci-Fi...
24 December 2015 | by paul_haakonsenSee all my reviews

'Built by science... fueled by revenge' was the catchphrase on the DVD cover right along with 'Robocop meets Red Shoe Diaries'. Yeah, I know! Right? This movie is a very campy and not very serious action Sci-Fi movie from 1991 coming out of the Hong Kong cinema and allegedly it is one of the infamous exploitation movies that paved the way for other similar movies in Hong Kong.

The story in "Robotrix" (aka "Nu ji xie ren") is about a police woman who was gunned down on assignment and then brought back to life by restoring her conscious mind in an android body. She has to stop a mad scientist who is also existing in an android body.

The acting in "Robotrix" was as to be expected from a movie such as this.

It is difficult to take this movie seriously, given the storyline and the questionable effects.

Not really a very memorable experience in the Hong Kong cinema.
