Ching Lia/Judy lee one tough pretty lady
29 November 2005 | by (california) – See all my reviews

Before viewing this movie I had seen her in about four others that I enjoyed.Overall this movie is not as good as them but for sure worth seeing.Since it's her first movie it's probably well known because not many females had given such an outstanding kung fu performance previously.The drawbacks in this film have nothing to do with her even though it seemed like her skills got even better in later films.This film wasn't a quality production,some scenes are out of focus,misaligned or too dark.One of the bad guys uses a pistol which for me is a bummer in a kung fu movie.One amusing scene is when about 8 toughs walking in an alley try to block off Judy Lee thinking they will have their way with her.We see very little action from Judy but do see a lot of bodies flying around.She goes on her way but the scene continues with the guys moaning and rubbing their aching parts while making comments like"who was that broad?"Not many lines are given Judy but the ones she has are attention grabbers,stopping in the doorway of a carpenters shop"Mister I'm after some coffins..two of them".Responding to a verbal threat "Ohhh you frighten me".The main bad guy has a mustaches and smokes cigars,for some reason he reminds me of Groucho Marx.When Judy invades his domain he asks" little girl what are you doing out so late?"She replies"Out to kill you".In a filmed interview Judy Lee states she was trained from childhood to be an opera performer like her parents which included dancing.This training is evident in her ballet like movements in this film.
