Then there's Feng, a tough Chinese girl who's older brother is the leader of the Triad that Hsiong worked with. It turns out that Feng and Hsiong also have a love thing going on, but when her brother died and Hsiong disappeared she was all alone. But on a particular night, Feng meets Chin when a bunch of thugs take Chin's picture of Hsiong away from her and the girls unleash their martial arts skill on the thugs.

A Hong Kong action movie being renamed? This must be a first! If you're interested in getting a copy, I found it as a Black Belt Theatre release on DVD. It's now entitled, "Tomb Raiders." However, there is no tomb and there are no raiders. Who cares! Anytime you put Michiko Nishiwaki, Yukari Oshima, Moon Lee and Cynthia Khan together in the same movie, it's worth seeing. There is a second title on this DVD, "Godfather's Daughter" starring Yukari. The title changed only slightly from the original "Godfather's Daughter, Mafia Blues."
