The all-female Heroic Trio are Tung (Wonder Woman), Chat (Thief Catcher), a mercenary, and Ching (Invisible Woman). Initially, they're on opposing sides - the invisible Ching is kidnapping newborn male babies for her evil master, Tung is trying to solve the crime (rather more effectively than her policeman husband, who is unaware of her secret identity), and Chat, who was formerly employed by Ching's evil master, is trying to sell her services and inside knowledge to the police. But all three have something in common buried deep in their past... Written by

Cheung, Mui and Yeoh Form An Awesome Trio That Kicks Ass More Than Any Charlie's Angels
Johnnie To's 'Dung Fong Saam Hap' is a hilarious action flick about three butt-kicking hot superheroines. The sets, costumes and special effects are very cheesy but in an amusing way. It reminds one of B-movies except that this one is entertaining. Of course there's hardly much of story or character development but that obviously wasn't the filmmaker's priority either. For me it's always at least worth seeing a movie that has the feisty Michelle Khan (Yeoh), the elegant late Anita Mui and the sensational Maggie Cheung playing lead roles. All three actresses do a fantastic job. While Cheung provides excellent comic relief (in a very funny biker outfit), Mui and Khan (Yeoh) (in quirky superhero outfits) carry the more intense and dramatic sequences. The rest of the cast is pretty hilariously awful but that adds comic value to the film. The cotton horned villain is a riot and man is he tough to kill. The cinematography is first rate and the choreography of the action sequences are superbly done. 'Dung Fong Saam Hap' is Hong Kong Action-Adventure-Fantasy-Comedy at its best.
