"Kung Fu Computer Nerd" - a review by timchuma

A dispute over a burial site between a Feng Shui expert (or Geomancer) and power mad local thug leads to the death of an innocent bystander who was assisting his escape. The Geomancer feels sorry for him and agrees to bury him in the 'Riches' cave while his grandfather will be buried in the 'Wisdom' cave.

Twenty years later the daughter of the bystander is the CEO of a major IT company and is trying to track the hacker known as 'Wisely'.

The 'hacking' scenes are a crack up (the film was made in 1990) as is the escape of Wisely from the four cop cars that are chasing him.

He is rescued by the CEO of the IT company who sees him in hospital. They agree to travel to the country where their parents are buried to try and move their parent's graves and solve their bad luck.

Upon their arrival they find the country has become a dictatorship and the motorcade they are travelling in is attacked by rebels. That night at the presidential palace they are caught up in a coup (with amusing changes of sides by the guests until a helicopter gunship resolves the power struggle). The General who has taken over turns out to be the son of the thug who had the fight with Wisely's dad many years ago.

The rest of the movie follows their attempts to get to their parent's graves and has many excellent action scenes and the classic line "Explode at 11 o'clock".

My favourite scenes in this movie were the 'hacker' scenes and the fight in the bad 80's disco.

A good comedy/action film from that era that most fans should enjoy.

timchuma gives this movie 7 out of 10.
