When the tire of the kidnappers car blows, you can clearly see that the car is not moving at all (the tire doesn't turn) but the camera is simply going from right to left. See more »
[after learning about the death of Tsung-Pao on the night of her birthday]
Tsung Pao, I never thought that you would die on my birthday. This is a toast from me. May your soul in Heaven protect us.

Corey Yuen's "She Shoots Straight" is not only a good action movie - it's above the average due to the tragic drama/character bits. There is a beautiful scene when a mother celebrates her birthday, not knowing yet that her son was killed by gangsters - some party guests witnessed it, yet nobody has the heart to tell her the sad news. Most genre movies would rather take a break from the action for for a little comedy scene in between. "She Shoots Straight" is one class above that. Anyhow, the story is basically quite simple, about the Hong Kong police fighting gangsters, and after the above mentioned guy was killed, his young widow (Joyce Godenzi), sisters and even his mom (what a great role for an old lady!) do everything they can to avenge him, while his former police colleagues are not a big help. Talking about the fights in "She Shoots Straight", particularly impressive is the violent clash of Joyce Godenzi versus Agnes Aurelio.
