To save the Hong Kong Police Force's Banshee Squad from becoming defunct, the struggling new squad members seek the help of former officers Amy (Sandra Ng Kwan Yue), now a divorced mom with a young kid, and May (Kara Hui), now partially mentally-unstable, to help them with their training regiment, lead by Madame Yang (Cynthia Khan). Their police skills are put to the test when they are ordered to nab a band of brutal thugs in the city. Written by
The fourth and final chapter of the "Inspector Wears Skirts" series has a pretty desperate "plot" and lots of over-the-top silliness (Cynthia Khan has jet-powered boots! Kids swallow mini-bombs and then take laxatives!) that most certainly will not be to everyone's taste, but at the same time it has a few very good action sequences with some of the best action women of Hong Kong. Cynthia Khan has a secondary part, but her fight scenes are simply brilliant; Moon Lee is cute, timid and playful for the most part, but then she suddenly does such things as sticking a gun into a guy's mouth and she switches to dangerously sexy; Kara Hui takes one huge fall at the start and becomes slightly crazy, but she does get the chance to demonstrate some old-school (shaolin?) kung fu techniques and to handle a variety of weapons, and her execution is as good as you'll see by almost any man; and Sandra Ng provides the comic relief (as usual). The main villain is an AWESOME fighter, and it takes the double team effort of Cynthia and Moon to bring him down at the end. The film can be tough-going at times, but the action set-pieces are definitely worth it; use the fast forward button if you must. (**1/2)
