Very similar in tone to City Hunter, Cynthia Khan is wonderful though
Boy, this movie is unbelievably odd and crazy. The characters in this film act with an idiocy that rivals that of City Hunter. I mean, these people are just plain goofy. The plot, for whatever it's worth, deals with Cynthia joining up with a cop to battle three awol cyborgs. The first half of the film is mostly comedy that eventually gets annoying (Cynthia doesn't need so many idiots around her). There are a few fights, but things don't pick up until the second half. That's when things really get started. The fights are fast, furious, high-flying, undercranked, and all together entertaining...as long as you take it in good fun. There are some interesting wire tricks used, but they essentially don't get in the way of the stars' skills. The finale has Cynthia transforming into Chun Li and fighting. I must say, she looks many times better than Jackie Chan as Chun Li. She is very beautiful in this film. Overall, a lightweight film that is enjoyable if you watch it in the right mindset.
