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 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 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.
