According to Shen xuan zhe, a new science fiction film from Taiwan, the time, place, and date of your birth in relation to the Earth's magnetic field can give you special powers. You might become an ultra-special "chosen" member of the Brotherhood of Legio, a sort of dark Taiwanese version of the Justice League.

When the Brotherhood comes calling, it forces potential members to undergo brutal tests and wear funky LED handcuffs to determine if they're worthy or not. The film has good-looking special effects and has a The Matrix meets The X-Men feel, with a dash of bondage thrown in. Looking forward to seeing this one when it hits stateside (it's variously listed under the English titles Brotherhood of Legio and Brotherhood of Legion).
