More class than you'd expect
21 January 2003 | by (Hamburg, Germany) – See all my reviews

This movie belongs to the bunch of those who owe a lot to Luc Besson's `Nikita'. Two tough-as-hell female killers are fighting against each other, but have a common enemy in Albert, a young gangster played by Lawrence Ng, who had his uncle killed to become the new big boss himself - and he doesn't want witnesses afterwards. If Peckinpah got a copyright on gunfights filmed in slow motion, he'd have been rich after this movie ;-). "Lethal Panther" is stylish, it's got more class than you'd expect (watch more movies from the same director, and you see what I mean), and I'd rank it among the top 20, yet not top 10 Asian thrillers I've seen. Too many fights following each other give this movie tremendous speed, but it is dangerously close sometimes to become irritating because characters do not get explained enough - they are just firing bullets every time they get on the screen. Did I already mention one of the 2 ladies is proud owner of a rocket thrower? Apparently she doesn't just want to kill the villain, she's out for total annihilation. "Lethal Panther" goes over the top in respect of violence, using more than required for the narration, but that's what happens in the B pictures every so often. The occasional sex scenes I didn't mind, sleazy or not, because as we all know since "Basic Instinct", they don't take the suspense away. One quiet scene at the shore uses John Carpenter's Halloween theme on the soundtrack - which is totally out of place in broad daylight.
