    The Boxer's Omen answers the question "What if Jodorowsky's The Holy Mountain had been a kung fu/horror mash-up?". This thing is NUTS. Or more probably, I don't have the Buddhist context for this slimy fight between good and evil. At its core, it's the story of a boxer who needs to take revenge on his brother's crippler and takes on the powers of his twin from another life, a powerful lama under threat from evil sorcerers, a tale that takes place in Hong Kong, Thailand and Nepal. But while the take on magic is pretty interesting, we spend too little time on coherent story and entirely too much on surreal imagery. Between animal puppets, freaky lighting effects, the occasional animated SFX, and lots of disgusting slime/bug/guts stuff, The Boxer's Omen sometimes looks silly, sometimes revolting, but you can be assured you'll see things you never thought you ever would, and probably some you wish you never had. It's fun on that basis, but rather relentless about it. 2 years 6 months ago
