Storyline

After some daring work at home, Alex, Elaine, and Moon head for Kuala Lampur to vacation. There, Alex meets up with his two best friends from school, Peter and Marco, so these "three musketeers" can party together. Elaine starts to fall in love with Peter, and he with her. But both Peter and Marco have secrets: Peter is the head of a rebel sect intent on overthrowing the government and ridding the country of Western influence. Marco is investigating the rebels, and he's probably reporting to the CIA. When the truth comes out and friends face each other as political opposites, what will they choose to do? Will friendship overcome ideology? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Better than the first "Iron Angels", though only partially a Girls-With-Guns film
11 November 2007 | by See all my reviews

After successfully completing one more mission, the Iron Angels (Alex Fong, Moon Lee and Elaine Lui - no sign of that cool Japanese guy from the first film) go on vacation to Kuala Lumpur. There, they hook up with a very rich businessman who also happens to be Fong's childhood friend. But the friend is about to turn into an enemy when the Angels are informed that this man is also the power-hungry leader of a terrorist group that has set up camp in the middle of the jungle and plans to overthrow the government of Malaysia.

I found this film a bit better than its predecessor: the story flow is smoother, the production is slicker, the stunts are even more spectacular and, above all, Elaine Lui's character - who was somewhat of an airhead in the first film - is much improved: more mature, more tough, and able to stand on her own in moments of action. The first half has a few pointless scenes, but the second is basically an extended version of the attack on the jungle camp in "Predator", except here some of the commandos are women. So if you want to see the striking and exotic Kharina Sa (instead of Arnold) moving through the jungle and machine-gunning down dozens of bad guys without even flinching, this is your movie! (**1/2)
