Fan Yin (Angela Mao) kills her parents' killer, but there is corruption between the killer, a gang that runs the prostitution ring and the police, and she is ordered to be executed. Fan Yin asks her friend and police officer Wong (Byong Yu) to avenge her and her parents' death.
This movie has more sexual material than other films of its kind, but maybe that is just the influence of the 1970s. Of course, the plot revolves around a prostitution ring, so I guess it is not completely gratuitous.
The film has been called "a martial arts potboiler" and is said to rely more on its shock value and salacious material to sell itself than its fighting scenes. That may be true, but it is not without its good fights (one even before the opening credits) and it is a welcome addition to DVD with some decent subtitles. This film may appeal to the kung fu fan who was brought to the genre by Quentin Tarantino.
