My Personal Favorite Moon Lee and Yukari Oshima Collaboration
Angel Terminators 2 (1993) (Chinese Action).
Moon Lee, Yukari Oshima, and Sibelle Hu smash some bad guys in this violent action flick that is one of the best "girls with guns" films on the planet. The opening minutes are loaded with action, including one awesome gymnasium sparring sequence involving Moon. It's a rarity to see both Lee and Oshima as protagonists in the same film, but that is indeed the case here. The characters and conflicts are actually quite good and they do add some dramatic intensity. All of this leads to one of the most satisfying, exciting finales in Moon's career.
I think "Angel Terminators 2" is even better than "Iron Angels", which is considered a landmark in this sub-genre. I strongly recommend this to viewers who want to see girls kick some serious butt.
