Tony Leung, star of Hong Kong action movies like Hard-Boiled and<br /> Bullet in the Head, stars in Tokyo Raiders along with pop stars<br /> Ekin Cheng and Kelly Chen. When Macy (Chen) gets jilted at the<br /> altar in Las Vegas, she returns to Hong Kong to find her fianc has<br /> disappeared--but in his apartment she finds Yung (Cheng), an<br /> interior decorator with surprising kung fu skills. Together they go<br /> to Japan, where they meet up with Lin (Leung), a private detective<br /> with an entourage of kung fu babes and stories that don't quite add<br /> up. From there, the plot gets more and more incomprehensible. It<br /> has something to do with counterfeit yen and a twisty series of<br /> double-crosses, but Tokyo Raiders is really about hip clothes and<br /> martial arts razzle-dazzle, all framed by the worst dubbed dialogue<br /> you've ever heard--sort of a Hong Kong version of The Mod Squad.<br /> Leung has demonstrated his acting chops in movies like Chungking<br /> Express and In the Mood for Love, but he can't make this silliness<br /> sound sensible. Still, the actors are sexy, the fight scenes are<br /> splashy (if a little confusing), and the movie never wastes too<br /> much time getting from one action sequence to the next. A chase<br /> that starts out on a motorized skateboard and ends up on a trailer<br /> truck hauling new cars is particularly entertaining. --Bret Fetzer
