Wilson Lam and Moon Lee are the heads of a rescue mission to Burma. When Wilson is shot and almost killed in an ambush, Moon and the rest of the team must complete the mission on their own - and find a possible traitor within the police force.
"Angel Force" opens with a bang (there is shooting and fighting even before the credits), and pretty much stays that way to the end. The setting changes from urban to jungle and back again, but the action rarely lets up and the plot and humor are kept to a minimum. Moon Lee, sporting a slightly boyish haircut, tones down her cuteness (as much as possible; after all, she is cute by default), and plays it serious and mean; in one fantastic moment, she points her gun to a bad guy's head and you expect her to knock him out or start questioning him. But no, she just blows his brains out without mercy! And then she proceeds to have a great (if short) fight with the ice-cold killer Fujimi Nadeki. The fights in "Angel Force" are not overly fancy - mostly just brutal kickboxing. And there are quite a few of them. Definitely one of her best films, as well as one of her easiest to find, there's no reason not to add it in your Moon Lee collection. (***)
