|The Plot: The evil scientist Yamamoto (Billy Chow) is out to prove something to the rest of the scientific world. After years of relegation within the scientific community, he wants to show that he is the top scientific mind in the world of robotics. To do this, he transmits his mind into a robot’s body. With this new body, he has an over abundance of power and he decides to put it to good use! He immediately begins frequenting prostitutes to demonstrate his new vitality and goes to work attacking his competitors with his tremendous martial skills! While attacking a foreign diplomat, Yamamoto kills dedicated police officer Sara (Chikako Aoyama) who is beloved by nearly everyone on the force. At the same time that Sara is gunned down, the police are sent a video tape of Yammamoto’s transformation and they take it to another top professor in the field of robotics. This professor decides that the only way to fight Yamamoto now is to take another human mind and transfer it into the body of a robot, and Sara’s mind is the perfect candidate. So now Sara, the professor and her assistant (played by Amy Yip) must defeat this evil scientist once and for all!|
Billy Chow, the ever present villain for many Hong Kong titles, is absolutely balls out bonkers in this movie. The man doesn’t know how to accept any other direction other than “all out” and that is precisely how he delivers. His portrayal of this Japanese uber scientist Yamamoto is patently over the top. The rest of the cast are all quite adequate in their roles, including Amy Yip who is still the ultimate tease. Known for her gigantic bosoms that she refuses to show on-film, she always conveniently hides them so that the camera doesn’t accidentally catch a glimpse of nipple. Chikako Aoyama isn’t as bashful, however, and disrobes for the screen without hesitation. However, these amazing beauties and the over the top performance of Billy Chow is only part of the reason anyone should watch the movie. So much of the audience’s enjoyment of something like Robotrix will come down to their enjoyment of its overall audacity and insanity.
