*This is our special pick of the week. This is a crazy, crazy film you might see late night on USA Network back in the 90's or find playing on one of the movie channels when they ran out of better known films.
Here's the synopsis: An invisible woman is kidnapping newborn babies who are destined to be emperors and delivering them to the mysterious subterranean supernatural Evil Master. The police are powerless, and the city must be saved by three very different women who share a terrible past. Anita Mui plays the mild-mannered wife of a police inspector who's also the mask-wearing, sword-slinging and knife-throwing crime fighter, Wonder Woman. Maggie Cheung plays the shotgun-toting, hard-boiled bounty hunter, Thief Catcher. Michelle Yeoh is Invisible Woman, the troubled but determined strong right arm of the Evil Master.

*Lot of buzz behind this one, it's suppose to be perfectly over-the-top and insane Con Air, but on a boat with a monster.
During transport from the Philippines to South Korea, a group of dangerous criminals unites to stage a coordinated escape attempt. As the jailbreak escalates into a bloody, all-out riot, the fugitives and their allies from the outside exact a brutal terror campaign against the special agents onboard the ship.
The film follows an unknown comedian named Ki-se, who lost everything and returned to his hometown after 15 years, becoming the boss of a large organization.
