A mess, with some redeeming factors
31 August 2007 | by gridoonSee all my reviews

Okay, since nobody else has commented on "Born To Fight" / "Angel's Mission" so far, I should probably write a short plot synopsis to give you an idea what it's all about. Problem is, the script of this movie is so disjointed and sloppily thrown-together that it's quite hard to keep track of all its characters and subplots. Let's just say that Yukari Oshima plays a Japanese policewoman who, while on vacation in Hong Kong, is asked to investigate the disappearance of several Japanese girls who were working as strippers / hookers at a night club that Yukari's mother happens to be the manager of. One of those girls is Dick Wei's sister, and he also comes to HK to find out what happened to her. Meanwhile, a local female cop is investigating the activities of a high-profile HK citizen who is actually a crime boss, and whose right hand man (Phillip Ko) is planning to betray him and take over his business. Got all that? Not that it matters much, anyway. What matters is that Yukari is impressive in her several fight scenes (I liked her sporty outfits too), and the other female cop is a bonus babe who looks as good as she fights and shoots.

7 out of 10 for the action, 3 for everything else, 5 in average.
