See EEAAO Oscar-winner Michelle Yeoh kick it in a new 4K restoration of Johnnie To’s wild 1993 Hong Kong martial arts action classic, The Heroic Trio!
The supernova star power of Hong Kong cinema icons Michelle Yeoh, Maggie Cheung, and Anita Mui 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 (referenced in Cheung’s international breakthrough, Irma Vep), a kick-butt showcase for three of the coolest women warriors to ever hit the screen. (Dir. by Johnnie To, 1993, Hong Kong, in Cantonese with English subtitles, 83 mins., Rated R)
