We now have more details of the UK release by 88 Films of the classic Yuen Biao film Iceman Cometh.
In The Iceman Cometh, two opposing Ming Dynasty warriors fall into an ice crevice and are unthawed in the early 1990s to a drastically changed world. The good warrior (Yuen Biao) finds a home with a quirky prostitute (Maggie Cheung). The bad warrior (Yuen Wah), a rapist-murderer, simply picks up where he left off centuries ago. At first, they are unaware that the other still exists until Wah’s handiwork shows up again.
