Chinese X-O Manowar: The Movie

Last month Mei loi ging chaat also known as Future X-Cops was released in Hong Kong to little fanfare despite starring Hong Kong sensation Andy Lau. Now what's interesting about this film allegedly based on an original idea is that the suit of armor Andy Lau wears looks eerily similar to the one in X-O Manowar. Especially the suit from volume two. Take a look at the cover.

And now have a look at the suit from X-O Manowar volume two.

And for fun, here's the suit from X-O Manowar volume one (any excuse to post the Joe Quesada cover!).

What's worse is the plot summary is basically the X-O Manowar story backwards plus some crisis about energy.

Of course the movie is now on my must see list. I'll have a full report once I've located a copy.
A cop travels back in time to take on a corporation that's out to eliminate a doctor who has created a new technology which can break up the monopoly on a energy resources.
UPDATE: Watch the movie trailer below:
