Three beautiful women, and a lot of senseless violence
A good question is why this movie is sold under the title "Dragon Force" in Germany - I didn't spot any dragons ;-) "Death Triangle" tells the story of two police investigators (Cynthia Khan as Yang and Moon Lee as Li). They have always been good friends, but fall in love with the same man. He marries Yang, which drives Li insane. She kills the guy and makes sure all clues will lead the police to the conclusion that Yang did it. Yang escapes from the police, and the only one she can ask for help is a car thief she once arrested and obviously isn't very fond of her. This car thief named Coco is played by Cynthia Luster, and she performs totally over the top, almost like a funny sidekick, but tragedy strikes as her little son is kidnapped by Li. Yang and Coco unite in order to to rescue the boy, kill Li and - if possible - prove Yang innocent.
Interesting and unusual role for Cythia Luster, same goes for evil Moon Lee. Clearly a case of anti-typecasting which makes the movie more interesting than the average HK action spoof. I enjoyed it, so if you don't mind watching three beautiful ladies and a lot of senseless violence ;-) give it a try. (Voted 6/10)
