Martial Arts Theatre + The Late Show present
Riki-Oh: The Story Of Ricky
Central Cinema’s Martial Arts Theatre and Late Show team up for a two-night stand of the wildest martial arts splatter comedy magical realist prison break movie ever made.
“An astonishing, starkly stylized blood flood.” – The Village Voice
This offbeat action drama from Hong Kong stars Bin Shimada as Riki, a new prisoner at a high-tech penal institution of the future. Riki finds himself challenged by the prison’s violent, corrupt guards, and when one of his friends is murdered by the jailers, Riki explodes into a fury of violence as he seeks bloody vengeance against all who would cross him. Riki-Oh has won a cult following for its deliberately outlandish martial arts violence, in which Riki displays the remarkable ability to punch through his victims — and even blow them up.
