This obscure Shaw flick is a sleazy delight
3 November 2005 | by (Mountains of Madness) – See all my reviews

This obscure Shaw flick is a sleazy delight. It takes every opportunity to be crass, violent, nasty and erotic.

Director Chung Sun seems to relish the fetid atmosphere and brings a great eye for exploitation to the impressively shot visuals.

The storyline is straightforward, but complications ensue. A woman goes after a bunch of drug-dealing crooks who are responsible for the rape and death of her sister. A cop joins her on the vengeance trail as she worms her way into the organization.

"It's so exciting to see women fighting!" exclaims one seedy villain as he cheers on a catfight, neatly summing up one of the reasons this flick got made.

After said catfight, the same thug grabs the victor and says: "Baby, you need to get prepared. Then you'll know being with me is an unforgettable experience."

Later, we learn that one of his unforgettable experiences is getting rape-happy in his home torture chamber.

This flick has everything -- whores being shot up, shotgun mayhem, semi-naked hitladies, double-crossing studs, non-stop fighting, slow motion death, car chases, exploding water beds, great angles and drug-hating morals.

It has the energy of "Sex and Fury", but not the class. But, in all honesty, too much class would have ruined this minor classic.

Chung Sun directs with ferocious energy and keeps everything moving at a tight clip.

I recommend this highly.
