A trio of deadly China dolls is the reason to see this HK actioner
9 August 2005 | by simonize-1See all my reviews

A trio of deadly China dolls is the reason to see this HK actioner DREAMING THE REALITY (1991). SIBELLE HU joins forces with MOON LEE to take revenge; both have lost the person closest to them, and the villain of the piece is FOK (the late EDDY KO is appropriately slimy and despicable).

MOON LEE and YUKARI OSHIMA have been trained as assassins by their adoptive father FOK. The pre-credits sequence details their training at a very early age, and clearly differentiates the personalities of the two girls/women; the vicious nature of their foster brother and the ruthlessness of their mentor FOK.

There is a lengthy section of the film that takes place in Thailand, where a would be boxer and his sister run foul of a cruel and manipulative promoter. Of course, the two female assassins are then assigned a mission in Thailand, where of course, the two very different pairs of siblings are fated to meet.

There is the usual non-stop action, well choreographed but preposterous; the needless mayhem and senseless elimination of all the minor and some of the major characters; some interesting location shooting, and of course, the appeal of seeing the three women do their thing - something they do often and well

Though I was pleased that this film was broadcast locally on a Vancouver multi-cultural station, I am prone to dismiss this film as one that I would watch once, and no more.
