It's the year 1990 and the beautiful city of Hong Kong is under siege as the crime world goes 'turbo'. Triad leaders vie for power on the streets, drug trafficking is getting out of hand and the thin blue line that separates justice from anarchy is being erased. Within a few months time, the Triads will control every major crime activity in the Pacific Rim and no law enforcement agency in the world will be powerful enough to stop them. But all of that changes when the 'Angel Terminators' arrive, a new police force led by Detectives Ida and Hon, two close friends who are like sisters and watch each other's back in the line of duty. Ida and Hon are the best there is and they take on some of the toughest cases that ordinary law enforcement won't go near and take on criminal figures that no cop would dare go after.

The title sounds promising doesn't it? If you were expecting something like Iron Angels this movie just falls short.
The focus seems to be more on drama than on the action. In this genre this just doesn't work. We don't want to see these women humiliated or drugged.We want them to kick ass! There are too many scenes that are just too much. Kenneth Tsang playing the bad guy shows emotion when one of his friends get killed. In the other scene he urinates on the woman he said he loved. Very disgusting scene and very unnecessary. The main character gets captured, tortured and drugged. She manages to look like some junkie who has been an addict for years. (She only has been put on the drugs for one week or so! I mean I get it that you want to emphasize the dramatic effects of drug use but seriously don't go over the top please.) Obviously the director wanted to shock us only at what cost? It put me off this film. Besides the mood in a genre like this shouldn't be this dark. Although I wouldn't mind that much if the action scenes were good. Apart from some decent scenes the action is not mind blowing. To be fair it is just average. The only reason we tolerate any kind of plot and story telling in the genre if it serves the action and not the other way around. It would distract too much.
My advice: watch it one time and then forget about it!
