Good Hong Kong Action Movie
14 September 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Three detectives, two from Hong Kong (Kiu-Wai Miu, Fui-On Shing), and one from FBI (Cynthia Rothrock) goes after a diamond smuggler (Ken Tong) in Hong Kong. They capture the Japanese ring leader who's buying the diamonds, but his sister (Michiko NIshiwaki) comes in to take revenge on the smuggler who sold her brother to the police.

The movie is well made. Each of the scenes are shot with beautiful background, and lighting. Hong Kong movie really had their act together by the late '80s. They had good actors, and quality production.

The movie has good humor, and action. It's funny and exciting at the same time.

The highlight are the fight scenes where Rothrock kicks her way through the bad guys. This is one of the best movie she's starred in. If you're a fan of Cynthia Rothrock, or Michiko Nishiwaki, you wouldn't want to miss this movie.
