Three... Extremes will give you extreme sensations. Its three segments will polarize your opinion as a viewer. These aren’t the best horror anthology segments you’ve ever seen, but they are all irreproachable photographically. The logic sides of the three scripts are questionable. Reason comes second, here. The three tales were created by some of the most promising writers and directors of Asia.
First, there’s the story about a secret dumpling recipe that rejuvenates your skin and body. It is sickening, shocking, yet stylish. Then, there’s the one about a game of torture. It’s aesthetically charming but it’s nothing more than a nice setup. It’s a good concept that never lives up to its premise. The last segment is all over the place. It is chaotic, pretentious and frustrating.
The characters are colorful despite their darkness. The antagonists are all professionals in some way. Gore is abundant and imaginative. Those stories aren’t especially thrilling. There is more style, here, than there is substance. On a technical level, those stories are mostly masterpieces, but they all have a weak script with too much filler. The first story; Dumplings, is the only decent story.
