One hundred seventy years ago, a wise monk made a
section of land known as the Villians Valley, a sanctuary. Anyone who
came to the valley was considered protected and safe from the law. The
proclamation also stated that they should have a chance at repentance.
The Master of Eva Palace (Anita Yuen), who is now master of the martial
arts world, holds no regard for the ancient laws and enters the valley
in search of the 10 Untouchable Villians because she has a warrant of
justice to destroy them.
The remaining 8 villians were actually the 10
Untouchable Heroes until they were framed by two of their own members,
The Twin Villians, and used as scapegoats. Master Yin, the husband of
the Master of Eva Palace, arrives just in time to rescue them. One of
the 10 villians, Big Mouth Lee (Ng Man Tat), is his friend and Yin
believes that they are innocent. Despite being married and having a
child together, the Master of Eva Palace and Yin fight each other
Master Yin defeats his wife at the expense of
being turned into a vegetable- paralyzed and mute. Years later, Yin's
son, played by Andy Lau, decides to enter a kung fu competition which
can make him Master of the martial arts world. Things get complicated
when he finds out that the Master of Eva Palace is his mother and that
he must face her student, Brigitte Lin, a woman whom he has fallen in
Handsome Siblings has stunning scenery, beautiful
costumes, pyrotechnic special effects, and lots of flying wire-fu.
Overall, a pretty good movies, although some of the comedy just seemed
out of place and the action never climaxed.
