Almen Wong turns an average movie into a sexy action flick
4 November 2001 | by (Florida) – See all my reviews

With just about any other actress put into this average girls with guns film, full of slow parts and sappy love scenes, the movie would have been lackluster at best. Enter the striking on screen persona of Almen Wong, a talented and beautiful sight to witness. Unlike her more well known HK counterparts, Almen commands this film and for perhaps the first time since Michiko Nishiwaki, actually looks like she could get rough with the guys. Almen Plays noodle addicted master assassin Yang Ying A.K.A. Cat. She is very brutal, not afraid to get kinky either, but has the dichotomy of a tender side. She is killing evil Triad bosses, but a heady gumshoe played by a rather one dimensional Michael Wong wants her brought to justice. Yeah the plot is full of holes, but Almen's blistering performance is worth +3 points turns the film from a 4 to a 7 out of 10.
