Hilarious HK Subtitles !

Hong Kong Movies are legendary for mind-boggling mangling of the English language. Bad spelling or bad grammar, new or missing words, unintended double meanings and utter nonsense. Even if the film is awful, the subtitles usually entertain.


from Midnight Caller - " You slept with other women, being naked ".

Title of a book featured in Bomb Disposal Squad / Baby Bomb - " How to make a boom ".

from To Live and Die in Tsimshatsui

from Hero Of Tomorrow - "Even though I looked quite good, I can't help you in many thing".

from Profiles Of Pleasure - "Be multiple".

from Police Story 2 "Beat him out of recognizable shape!"

from New Legend of Shaolin "My daughter is so nice, she knows I love eating chicken ass."

from Supercop "Bump him dead."

from Legend of the Liquid Sword

from Kickboxer's Tears "No, it's bad if she's seriously twisted."

from Holy Weapon "Don't do anything perverted, we are in a hurry."

from Saviour of the Soul "Beware! Your bones are going to be disconnected."
