Roboforce

One of our Hong Kong favorites returns to the Bev on an incredible double bill of robotic action insanity! As an evil gang terrorizes their city with mechanized mayhem, the police capture and reprogram one of the gang’s anthropomorphic killing machines to fight fire with fire. Roboforce aka I Love Maria is a non-stop explosion of pure cinematic excitement, goofball comedy, impressive visual effects and truly inspired action, with a cast of recognizable HK favorites including Taiwanese-Canadian pop star Sally Yeh in dual roles, Wong Kar Wai regular Tony Leung, and iconic HK filmmaker Tsui Hark.

Robotrix

A delirious Category III Hong Kong explosion of sex, violence and sci-fi! When a mad scientist transfers his mind into a cyborg (kickboxing legend Billy Chow) and goes on a cyber rampage of rape and murder, the cop brain of his newest victim is placed in a Robotrix body. And now only she and her team of incredibly-lifelike mechanized companions, including HK sex symbol Amy Yip, can stop him. Wildly veering between Porky’s-style comedy and ultra-violent RoboCop action flick, Robotrix is packed with nudity & gore, kung fu robots, android antics & fun special effects, plus some truly uncomfortable sexual situations, creating a film unlike any other.
