Highly entertaining.....
30 May 2012 | by (Sweden) – See all my reviews

Imagine if someone did a sleazy, gritty, CAT III version of Huang jia shi jie/ Yes, Madam!(1985)?

Well, that film would probably resemble this exploitation kung fu film from Hong Kong, starring Ping Chen.

The story is simple, about a nurse who discovers that her sister is a junkie vows revenge on drug kingpins who rule Hong Kong through corrupt police and politicans.

On her quest for revenge she meets the only good, non corrupted cop. But getting rid of gangsters is easier said then done.....

Granted, this film resembles Coffy (1973)a lot, but i has its own style and Ping Chen is very confident in the main lead. She, just like Pam Grier, has no problems with gratuitous nudity which makes this Kung fu flick a little more risky then usual.

Also the action scenes are cheaply made, this whole film seems to been made on a shoestring budget. It seems that the director only did one take only, before moving on to the next scene.

But it has energy and a fierce attitude that I think some kung fu films lack. This film must have been a early precursor to CAT III "classics" like Chik loh go yeung/Naked Killer (1992).

So future viewers that liked, Furyô anego den: Inoshika Ochô/Sex and Fury (1973), The Blood Bond (2010), Nikita (1990) may want to check this one out.
