If it's crap ... We'll tell you
Kenny Bee plays a physical incarnation of death who, together with Suet Lam, maintain the Hong Kong area. Shortly after he meets the grand daughter of a woman who he buys oranges from they begin to fall in love... but how will he tell her his terrible secret?!
A Land Without Boundaries is a special kind of terrible. The kind that doesn't make goddamn sense. It sets up it's own rules for these characters who play "Death" but doesn't really share them with the audience. These people who are immortal embodiments of death (and LOVE oranges apparently) just live among us and they can see who's going to die and when... but they don't kill people, they just stand there and watch to make sure the people die on time. Anyway, Kenny Bee and Suet Lam are in charge of Hong Kong. Kenny Bee falls in love with this girl who runs this gigantic farm that grows spices and oranges and she tracks birds flights and stuff. It's just her and a handful of her friends apparently that maintain this fucking enormous farm/marshlands. And somehow she has time to fall in love with Kenny Bee even though he's super weird and wears all black and has a girl's haircut. Unfortunately when she's holding his hand, she can see the people who are going to die too, and she accidentally shouts out, preventing a dude from being struck by a car. Now this is a problem because Kenny Bee starts to turn orange. Which is bad apparently. Spoiler Alert! And by spoiler alert I mean "something they should tell you up front but never really explain" if Death causes or prevents three deaths that should(n't) happen, the orange will kill him! (Not the fruit he loves to eat, but the color his arms start to turn.) Anyway, that's like 2/3rds of the movie the movie ends so predictably that it's super boring. It's this weird phantom zone where it is entirely predictable, even though it doesn't make much sense. A huge portion of the film seems like non-sequiturs, like they only had half a script but decided to film a movie anyway. Like, there's this one scene where a bunch of Deaths sit around drinking telling stories about their job in English. This has nothing to do with the rest of the film and we don't see these other characters again. And they're laughing about these stories, except they are terrible stories that barely make sense. And it's not like there's anything lost in translation, they're speaking English! It's like someone ran this part of the script through Google translate and then handed it to non-English speaking people and just had them try to sound out the words phonetically. Awful
Don't let the trailer fool you. There isn't any action at all. Just a couple sloppy special effects that are unrelated to the main plot which is the equally sloppy romance story.
This movie isn't JUST terrible. It's senseless. It's easily one of the worst movies I've seen since starting this blog.
