Spectacular action scenes, but not quite a classic
10 November 2007 | by See all my reviews

I had heard a lot of good things about "Iron Angels" and how it influenced the Hong Kong film industry so much that for years they were trying to cash in on its success by attaching the world "Angels" to a series of similar films. Having finally seen it, I must say I was a bit underwhelmed. Don't get me wrong, the action scenes ARE spectacular and explosive, particularly a massive shootout (we're talking about HUNDREDS of bullets here) that ends with a very high jump from the roof of a house, and the climactic fight between Moon Lee and Yukari Oshima that gets seriously bloody and brutal. It's the film-making itself that leaves something to be desired: there are too many points where the film seems to lack a smooth flow from scene to scene, and becomes hard to follow. Obviously a must-see for Girls-With-Guns fans (Lee, Oshima - who brings a touch of perversity to her villainous role - and Elaine Lui all mean SERIOUS business in action), but not quite a classic of the genre IMO. Try to see it in the "Iron Angels" version, as the one titled simply "Angels" has been trimmed in moments of extreme violence. (**)
