A solid, yet somewhat sloppily-crafted actioner...
21 April 2004 | by rudeboy8080See all my reviews

'Red Fists', a.k.a. 'Lian Shou Jing Tan' is a prime example that shows that Yu Rong Guang and Sharon Kwok Sau Wan, in my opinion, are two of Hong Kong's underrated actors from the late 1980's and early 1990's, even if this film isn't top-notch quality. The plot is muddled at times, some of the acting is sub-par, and the film feels run-of-the-mill in comparison with the likes of 'Police Story' and 'Yes, Madam'. Yu Rong Guang portrays a Mainland Chinese cop who goes undercover in Hong Kong to bust some criminals who are attempting to get their hands on stolen currency plates. While infiltrating the crime family that's trying to acquire the plates, a Hong Kong cop(Kwok) blows the Mainland cop's cover, placing the Mainland cop and his son in danger. 'Red Fists' contains some solid, 'Police Story'-influenced fight scenes, gunplay, explosions, and stunts. With his background in Chinese Opera, Yu Rong Guang shows his stuff during the fight scenes. On the other hand, Sharon Kwok isn't a martial artist or a screen fighter, but she manages to hold her own during the action scenes and non-action scenes with her solid acting abilities, girl-next-door beauty, warm smile, and nice physique. The rough production values and muddled, hackneyed plot bog down 'Red Fists', but the film deserves credit for trying to be a b*#^s-to-the-wall, high octane actioner.
