Yet a very poor DVD version of a classic
11 May 2006 | by (Portugal) – See all my reviews

I'm giving 6 points to the little jewel this film once was, presenting a pretty tough girl, very acrobatic and good with two knives, or a wood plank, or a hatchet, whatever comes handy, against hordes of bad guys.

The fancy title Chase Step By Step (1982) is appropriate, as most of the many fights in the film take place up and down staircases, and though we cannot count them, the body counter shall be in par with the number of steps.

Queen Boxer was once the international English title, and is also the most current version of the film, on DVD, copyright 2004 Aquarius Media Corp, SOFA Home Entertainment Inc, and GoodTimes (NY) - too many copyrights for what is a destructive job on a classic film. The content is announced at 94m and it runs 84m (those people can't even add up numbers), delete the original credits and substitute them with fancy ones, and large sequences are simply black on black, as they didn't compensate for a poorly lighted original. Also, they got hold of what may have been a bootleg copy, taken off a large screen with an amateur camera, so that we miss a substantial part of the action; as another reviewer said, the end result is as if the camera was permanently out of focus with the fulcrum of the action.

A must see for Judy Lei fans, and viewers onto blade fighting. As bad as the media support is, you still have a good number of deaths, and hectic blade fighting all over. The end scene is obscenely cut by the DVD producers, reducing considerably it's original emotional impact.
