Trivia

The nameless kickboxer fought by Cynthia Rothrock and Siu-Ho Chin was in fact a legitimate competitor in muay thai, whose strikes and blocks were so hard that he quickly bruised the forearms of his onscreen opponents. Rothrock claimed that to deal with this, she was supplied with metal gauntlets to wear under her clothes, but these in turn caused the other performer great pain. In the end, both were outfitted with the hidden armor, making the period of filming very noisy by way of the metal plates repeatedly clanking together. See more »

One of the best from HK's golden age!
2 July 2014 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

A sequel to Above The Law (Righting Wrongs) by name only, and mainly for the Western market, this insane movie is a completely different kind of film that trades the serious action, thriller, for the non-stop action, comedy.

And that's not a bad thing.

Unfortunately though, this sequel tends to lack the production values, and directorial efforts of the first – going through a collection of directors, and hairstyles (which is slightly entertaining) but keeping the same hard-knock fight scenes which we all know and love.

In fact, Rothrock claims to this day that her favourite movie that shows her fighting best, is Blonde Fury (Above The Law 2). And, that's possibly quite true!

Whereas Righting Wrongs was Yuen Biao's time to shine, Blonde Fury is all about the Roth! She actually looks like she is having a great time, which comes across quite well in her character.

Cynthia is aided by ex-boyfriend Meng Hoi, and the fantastic Chin Sui Hoi (brother to the amazing Chin Kar Lok), who both get to show their own skills throughout the show, battling bad guy superstars Billy Chow and Chung Fat, along with a host of other (very hurt looking) stunt-men.

Definitely crazy, often hilarious, and continuously action packed, this gem of a mess is pure entertainment from start to finish!

Enjoy!
