Nothing broken in this classic
9 February 2004 | by (Queens, NY) – See all my reviews

This is what I'm talking about!! From the get go, the film is dark, grim, and the common HK 'revenge' theme, BUT this is how you take revenge!

Angela is great in this one; fighting to the point where she won't rest until the enemy's blood is spilt. It's great: no phony sparring or sparing the enemy. Guys are practically slammed by Angela's hard kicks (love those sound effects!) and her movements flow so smoothly that it just adds so much more to the fights. Her facial expressions are best when fierce and enraged. Even Sammo gets bruised and abused. She's too dangerous for Shaolin temple while her foes cower in fear. Broken Oath is a fine work from kung fu's Deadly China Doll.
