Intense and full of rage.
22 January 2016 | by OllieSuave-007See all my reviews

This is an intense action movie from Hong Kong, featuring Joyce Godenzi as an Inspector Mina Kao, who faces a gang of dangerous Vietnamese criminal refugees.

The acting was quite good, especially those of the Godenzi, Carina Lau, Sandra Ng and Anglie Leung. They all play policewoman and, sometimes, rather furiously and dramatic. Actor Tony Leung has a touching co-starring role in the film as well. Sammo Hung also has a role, but unfortunately, he didn't do much with his character and his cameo appearances didn't contribute to the plot much. It was actually quite a distraction to the story.

The English title of the movie, Lethal Lady, pretty much describes the film to a T. The policewomen faced a family tragedy and must defeat the Vietnamese gang in the process, relying on the strengths of their colleagues and family to overcome their adversities. While a little in certain moments, the film does suffer from a lack of humor and suspense, and there is a limited amount of action, mostly sequestered toward the latter half of the plot.

Overall, it an average movie full of rage and overkill moments. There are better stuff out there but won't hurt to watch on a slow day.
