Veronica Yip, queen of the Cat III, has a long shower
22 May 2003 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

At the beginning of the 1990s there was a deluge of Cat III movies in Hong Kong as the producers tried to satisfy the public's insatiable appetite for these movies. The queen of the Cat III potboilers was Veronica Yip, riding a wave of sexploitation titles and this was her most famous effort.

The movie begins with every office worker's fantasy: the woman working naked at her desk. And that it what it is. Our perverted villain has visions of a colleague naked at her desk but we the viewer see it for the fantasy that it is. Having been aroused by her alleged provocative behaviour, he rapes her and she is killed in the ensuing struggle. Later that evening at a hostess bar (which is a mandatory scene in most Hong Kong movies) he is amazed to see the dead woman's look-a-like and he plots a scheme to explain her absence by having Minmin (Veronica Yip) submit a letter of resignation in her place. Things do not go according to plan when Minmin recognises her saviour, from an attempted assault of the previous night, to be the boss's son and changes her mind and accepts the job. Some action is provided by a rival firm attempting to sabotage our hero's firm by robbery and kidnapping. After many trials and tribulations and the legendary ten minute shower scene, our Cinderella is united with her prince.

To summarise: there are lashings of nudity and sex, if that is what you interested in. As well, the movie has a certain innocence in that there are cardboard baddies and the hero easily disposes of them in formulaic kung-fu fights, and in a shoot-out between the police and the gangsters there is much shooting and like children playing cops and robbers they are shot without much blood or being hurt. This is a perfect example of a Cat III movie.There is gratuitous nudity and the plot is slight, seeming only to hang the sex scenes on to and in the end it is a pleasant way to spend 90 minutes.
