Daze Raper

Summary: Entirely missable

Out of prison, Hung (Bobby Au Yeung) hits upon the idea of putting his sleeping medicine into brick-packs of tea. When sipped, it makes young women highly suggestible. Hung tags his victims, "rescues" them, asks for their phone numbers and the PINs of their credit cards. He chalks up a number of daylight ATM robberies while the silly police have no idea.

The title is entirely misleading. "Daze" is what Hung does to his victims, but it's his leering partner who's the rapist. In the single scene which (abundantly but briefly) justifies the Cat III rating, and where you won't be sure whether to laugh out load, be revolted, turned on, or just plain sickened, leering partner drags a drugged young woman into a campervan, pulls off her dress, spreads chicken sauce over her tender spots, has his way with her, then dumps her, still naked, on the side of the road.

The only thing I liked about this film was that, apropo of nothing, the soundtrack would suddenly burst into hot and funky rhythms.
