Storyline

Rothrock stars as Cindy, an American FBI agent who travels to Hong Kong to arrest a criminal newspaper editor, Ronny Dak (filmmaker Ronny Yu) who prints counterfeit money using the newspaper's presses (a dubious notion, but storyline is not the film's strong point). While investigating Dak's crimes, Cindy hooks up with her old friend Judy Yu (Elizabeth Lee), an undercover cop (Chin Siu-ho), and an intrepid journalist (director Mang Hoi) to battle his kung-fu henchmen.

Trivia

The scene in which Cynthia Rothrock jumps from the burning building while holding a baby had to be filmed many times with Rothrock performing the stunt herself while wearing high heels. The night after filming, Rothrock experienced dizziness and was taken to a hospital where a physician declared her healthy but claimed the stunt had "jumbled" her internal organs. See more »

almost perfect
12 February 2010 | by (Romania) – See all my reviews

this movie amazed me because it has nice story,good cast,good directors,very good fights and awesome soundtrack.Cynthia rothrock acts very well in this , she has a lot of charm,is very beautiful in this and fights very well.She is my favorite martial arts actress because she makes her own stunts and she is not fake.i think this movie don't deserve a 10 because i was disappointed by a fight between Cynthia fighting against a bad guy in the house of her roommate and i didn't like the ending also because i expected a brutal fight between she and the chief villain.but the fights are very well photographed and Corey yuen does its job very well as usual coordinated the fights scenes.fans of Cynthia rothrock watch this movie because she was in top form in this and because BLONDE FURY it is in the top 3 for sure in her list.
