Cat (Shu Qui) works as secretary on a big software company, but she remember her past, stealing precious stones on a high class disco, in company of the martial angels, a half dozen ladies team, all they skilled in martial arts, as well in pistols uses. And making passionate love with Zi Yhang, (Julian Cheung), the male jewels thief that falls in love with Cat. All that fever of love and richness, suddenly returns after years, when Cat receives news from ZiYhang,Her love calls a dramatic SOS, being prisoner of the russian maffia. So Cat calls Octopus, Monkey, Goldfish, and the rest of the old team of the olds times and action starts again. Lets rescue Zi.
Despite pretty bad reviews, I just had to give this film a go it does, after all, star HK super-babe Shu Qi plus 6 other oriental lovelies as a team of all-action cat-burglars. Surely that's worth checking out? Well, as babe-fests go, Martial Angels is hard to beat. The eye candy is top quality. Shu Qi looks as fantastic as always, and of the rest of the girls, Rosemary Vandebrouck and Amanda Strang caught my roving eye in particular.
Unfortunately, if one is to judge this movie by any other possible merits, it is an absolute stinker! The story is weak, the action shoddy and the special effects downright pathetic. Director Clarence Fok and Producer Wong Jing have given us a photogenic cast and little else.
If Shu Qi is the only reason you're contemplating seeing this one, you would be better off watching Sex and Zen 2 again!
