Yukari Oshima and Sharon Yeung, as Hong Kong cops on leave in Manila who are contacted by their boss and asked to help a local, recently widowed cop break a weapons smuggling ring operating in the area, make a dynamite female-buddy team. Sarah Gomez, as the main bad guy's sister, is a totally sexy and evil bitch. So you'd expect some some of climactic confrontation between her and at least one, if not both, of the film's leads. But it never comes, as Gomez meets a disappointing end. "Deadly Target" is jam-packed with action, but there is also too much wirework, and the film runs too long for its simple good guys vs. bad guys tale. But there ARE two things here that you won't often see: Yukari and Sharon in clown disguises, and death by fart (!) ** out of 4.
