BuryMeHigh

Plot: Wisley (Chin Kar-Lok), a computer hacker who is dying of a brain tumor. His research has led him to believe that a Geomancy (feng shui) relic is buried in the Indochina mountains will save him, a relic that the diabolical General Nguen (Yuen Wah) happens to have his ancestors buried at…

To help you under stand, Feng Siu has much to do with the way things are positioned, where you sit on the bus or where you are buried, all these result in what will happen in the future. Wisely’s father (Corey Yuen Kwai) is a expert in Geomancy and had discovered three mountains in Indochina. Each mountain containing the power to change peoples future. One mountain contained ‘Power’ the power to over rule cities, ‘Wealthy’ to lead the wealthy life and ‘Wisdom’ giving you amazing knowledge. Wisleys father was buried under the mountain of Wisdom.

Determined to stop Ngyuen at all costs, Wisley puts together a team of fighters to prevent the mad general from obtaining the relic. This team includes a young business women, Miss Wong. Who has earned millions with her father being buried under the mountain which possessed the Wealth Relic. Tsui Siu-Ming places a Professor at the UCLA who has great interests in Geomancy.

Review: The film really reminds me of many other flicks, Chin Kar-Loks character really gives off the Indiana Jones / Operation Condor feel about him. The setting and location reminds me of Eastern Condors and Bullet in the Head. Tsui Siu-Ming of course reminds me of Sammo, with the build and being able to kick ass too, the film would be a lot more popular if he was in it.

The action has to be the best part of the movie Chin Kar-Lok showing off the works as usual, woo hoo. He has a great fight with Wing Cho, the setting is on a small wooden bridge, where Wing Cho was killing off escapees, but Chin Kar-Lok fights back. Chin Kar-Lok even picks up Wing Cho and slams him down on to the bridge. Surprised to see that Tsui Siu-Ming could fight too, he and Chin Kar-Lok has a cool fight against a group of rowdy punks in night club.

Final thoughts, a great film to show Chin Kar-Lok’s talents – acting and martial arts wise. But the story does have some plots holes.
