Cynthia Khan plays Police Inspector Yeung (the same character of her "In The Line Of Duty" films?), who travels to Malaysia looking for the girlfriend of a recently killed Triad member, who might have passed on to her a revealing computer disk just before his death. The organization that is exposed on that disk also sends a man to Malaysia for the same purpose. The catch? He's Inspector Yeung's fiancé! Also on the trail of the same girl are professional killers Phillip Ko and Billy Chow.
Not a bad medium-budget Hong Kong actioner. Cynthia Khan has rarely looked more beautiful (great hair too!), and her action scenes are energetic and aggressive. The bad news is that there aren't too many of them. In fact, after a short prologue in Mainland China, there is no action in the film until the 43rd minute. Some spectacular car crashes after that point, but a little too much slow-motion in the fight scenes. The most inspired moment: Cynthia's fiancé, Billy Chow, and a Malaysian cop in a three-way, everyone-for-himself fight, with each one trying repeatedly to pick up the computer disk from the ground, only to get kicked back by the other two.
