One of the best from the "femme fatale" genre of Hong Kong.
The plot and acting may be campy, but the action is on a higher level just below that of John Woo. The few action scenes really surprised me, and the fight choreography with both martial arts and gun play turned out to be above average. The ending is some of the best when it comes to female martial arts action, it's brutal yet believable, and for its age keeps you on the edge of your seat. For example, most female action heroes don't bleed from the face when kicked or punched, but here they do, and this adds further tension towards the protagonists' plight. To watch I would first be a fan of Asian action movies from this period, as some moments are so cheesy you'll roll your eyes. Comedy, drama, and action don't blend appropriately at times, but once again this is only expected for a Hong Kong feature of the late 80's. With a mild tolerance for cheese and martial arts, you'll no doubt love this one. Moon Lee, Elaine Lui, and Yakuri Oshima perform with deadly swiftness!
