A couple of cool girls who can fight, but otherwise nothing special
Deadly Target, unfortunately, mixes two genres: kung fu movies and gun-play movies. As a result, it isn't a satisfying example of either. The only thing that makes it worth watching are the two super-athletic women in the lead roles. They have some serious fighting and acrobatic ability, and also great chemistry and charisma.
But the car chases and gunfights are laughably poorly done, the overall acting is hammy and the dialog is abysmal - although that may have something to do with the ridiculous subtitles, which just say "Cut the crap!" all the time, and uses dialog on the level of "Don't mess up without my order, alright?". But honestly, this is just the kind of thing that these characters actually seem to be saying...
The movie dragged on with a boring plot for too long. The climactic fight lasts fifteen minutes, but has very little kung fu and almost nothing but gun-play (complete with a bunch of guys who are killed several times), which in my opinion was boring, as I watched it to see some good fighting. Too bad.
4 out of 10.
