| Paris, Hong Kong Style
One of the oddest martial arts flicks you will ever see, this strange Euro/Far East hybrid is both a fine old school style kung fu flick as well as a European espionage tale, concerning gangsters pursuing two young men who steal a cache of diamonds from them in Hong Kong. The chase leads them around the globe, and the viewer is treated to a glorious travelogue of both Paris and the French Alps, where the film comes to it's violent climax. It's funny to see the reverential way the Chinese film makers lovingly film the French scenery. Obviously filming in a European locale was very special and unique for them. Their love of the foreign land transfers nicely to the film itself, and watching "Paris Killers" becomes an extremely enjoyable experience because of it. Filled with many head scratching moments that make little sense, this is one to watch in an altered state of mind with friends who enjoy bizarre movies. The French girls are filmed so lovingly in various states of undress, that the camera appears to leer at times, but it is all harmless fun. It must be mentioned that the main draw of "Paris Killers," besides the beautiful widescreen photography, is the impressive martial arts on display. There are many action scenes involving kung fu and it's very well choreographed. Those scenes are fast and intense and fit in well despite the European setting. for fans of the martial arts genre, this is one to track down, if for nothing else than for it's sheer weirdness. Extremely obscure title, and most likely not easy to find. The copy I saw was labelled "For sale in South Africa Only!..." which only adds to the strangeness...
