Does it live up to the title & cover? Yes and No
5 November 2008 | by See all my reviews

"Yes", because Angela Mao is indeed a doll, and pretty deadly in this one. "No", because there are too many side characters taking away the focus from Angela - don't get me wrong, they all can fight, but in a movie called "Deadly China Doll" you expect the female lead to be the one central figure. The plot is muddled, the DVD transfer is poor, the editing is often bad, but the fighting is generally pretty good (though the characters' jumping around as if they had springs on their shoes can get tiresome) and constitutes the only reason to see this movie. Angela has 3 fight scenes in total: her most ferocious expressions and moves come at the 10-minute climax, but my favorite is her first, where she goes against a guy at least twice her size. (**)
