Silver Hawk's trademark silver BMW bike seems to gain and lose the magnetic grapple/rocket launcher tubes at random - most notably when she escapes from her first encounter at Wolfe's lair - when she summons the bike, the tubes are there, but when Superintendent Man catches up with her, they're gone (although you can see the mounting points on the fairing).

My wife and I just watched this tonight on Showtime. A rare occasion where we had nothing to do and there was nothing else on.
I certainly agree with the first reviewer, too many Western-style jump cuts, CGI and Matrix- style fight scenes.
With that said, it's all in good fun. The whole movie is pretty silly, but in a good-spirited way. It's odd enough in a Hong Kong sci-fi action way to keep one's interest. The art direction is superb, along with the costume design.
I'll also agree with the first reviewer that there's lots of eye candy. Beautiful Asian women in sexy costumes. Seems every woman in the movie, no matter how small the role is a knockout and dressed to the nines. Michelle Yeoh, in the lead role, seems to have a different hairstyle and outfit in every scene.
If it's on cable, or there's nothing else available at the video store and you're a fan of kitchy Hong Kong action, it's certainly worth a look.
