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 »

Almost unwatchable - except for the fights
3 July 2008 | by See all my reviews

It seems that the last three movies I've watched recently - "Guardian Angel" (1996), "New Killers in Town", and this one - have followed pretty much the same pattern: they're terrible, but contain some good fight scenes that are worth seeing. "Blonde Fury", one of Cynthia Rothrock's last Hong Kong vehicles, is almost unwatchable - I struggled to get through it. But Cynthia shows some great moves and makes clever use of her surroundings in about 5 or 6 fight scenes. The highlight comes in the middle, when she takes on a guy with particularly powerful kicks, following a pretty good Chin Siu Ho vs. Billy Chow fight. Martial arts fans are advised to keep their finger on the fast-forward button; non - martial arts fans are advised to avoid this film altogether. (**)

P.S: No wonder Elizabeth Lee was runner-up of Miss Hong Kong 1987. She's freaking gorgeous!
