THE HEROIC TRIO

東方三俠

The supernova star power of Hong Kong cinema icons Maggie Cheung, Michelle Yeoh, and Anita Mui propels this gloriously unrestrained action extravaganza from genre maestro Johnnie To, injecting 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.

東東(梅艷芳)與心靖(楊紫瓊)本是一對來自不同家庭的孤兒,在10歲左右被一位武林高人所收養,教她們習武,希望二人能成為一對行俠仗義的女俠。可是,在心靖12歲那年,卻被幾個神秘達人所捉去,自此音訊杳然。東東長大之後,下嫁一名警官劉啓文(劉松仁),夫婦感情雖好,然而東東卻一直隱瞞著自己是女飛俠的身份,不知不覺中,這個秘密亦成了二人之間的鴻溝。心靖當年被捉回清朝宧官陳公公的魔宮之後,公公運用魔法,洗去心靖的記憶,並迫心靖練一種消弛七情六欲的功夫。陳七(張曼玉)亦是被公公捉回來的無辜小孩,但陳七本性聰明不羈,趁著公公全力催谷心靖之際,伺機逃脫,當時陳七不過十五、六歲,由于中毒不深,終于恢復記憶,並且背道而馳,選擇了成為一名表面為金錢而服務的女捕頭,不過實際上極富正義感。故事曲折處,在于三位女俠在公公的一次”盜嬰”陰謀中,扮演著被命運安排的互相對立的角色。可是,互相的感應,卻最後將三人聯在一起,合而為一,成為“東方三俠”。
