Synopsis by Nathan Southern
In lieu of the action-heavy sci-fi spectacular suggested by the title, this unique chronicle from Hong Kong-based director Jeff Lau (The Top Bet, Out of the Dark) essentially constitutes a comedic , sci-fi-driven romance about a love triangle involving two robots.. Hu Jun stars as Xu Dachun, police chief in a picturesque small town located in the Zhejiang Province. Lin Xiang (Eric Tsang), the oddball head of the TN Research Corporation, visits Xu and asks him to try out his latest robot on the police team, K-1 (Alex Fong). Xu obliges, and thereafter, K-1 promptly falls for sexy female cop Zhou Sumei (Sun Li). Unfortunately, Xu also harbors feelings for Zhou, and has ever since her father, on his deathbed, asked the chief to protect his daughter. Yet the situation grows even more complicated when K-1 assists Xu on an assignment and eventually saves Xu's life from a rogue cyborg, turning the police chief into an android in the process.
