Robotrix Movie Trailer

Robotrix (女机械人, nǚ jīxièrén “Woman Robot”) is a 1991 Hong Kong science fiction exploitation film directed by Jamie Luk Kin-ming and produced by the Golden Harvest Company. It features Taiwanese-American actor David Wu, Chikako Aoyama, kung fu expert Billy Chow, Hui Hsiao-dan, and the voluptuous soft-porn star Amy Yip. The plot concerns a female police officer who is gunned down, only to have her brain transplanted into a robotic clone.

This erotic R-rated thriller is notable for a Hong Kong film on general release in featuring frequent female full-frontal nudity, and is particularly notable for a scene of brief full-frontal male nudity (of Hong Kong Chinese actor Chung Lin, playing the robot version of Japanese scientist Ryuichi Yamamoto), as it is perhaps the first time in Hong Kong cinema that a Chinese adult male’s private parts have been fully revealed on camera in a film for general release.[citation needed] It was also perhaps notable for leading the way in Hong Kong category 3 martial arts films. Cast member Vincent Lyn said of the film, “Now that was one wild shoot. The cast and crew were all over the place and you were lucky to find out what you were doing before the cameras rolled. I spent more time laughing on the set than anything else.”

Plot

A criminally insane scientist, Ryuichi Sakamoto (Lam Chung), transfers his mind into a cyborg and immediately commits a series of rapes and murders. Among his victims is female police officer Selena Lam (Chikako Aoyama). The scientist Dr. Sara (Hiu-Dan Hui) transfers Selena’s brain into a cyborg named Eve-27, then copies her own persona into a robotic assistant named Ann (Amy Yip). The cyborg-robot team pursue the criminal Sakamoto by investigating a series of murdered prostitutes. [wikipedia]
