Yukari Oshima is up there as one of my favorite female action stars, and although she doesn't get to show off her talent TOO much in this film, she still kicks enough butt to satisfy most of her fans.The film itself is OK, more or less a revenge flick and contains some interesting stunt work and acting. Ken lo does a good job as the villain in this film for example, and Mark Cheng's sidekick is pretty acrobatic, although dies a little to abruptly. The main problem i had in this movie was the way Cheng handles himself when it comes to the action. He waves his arms around a lot and sort of looks like he's impersonating jackie chan, but ends up seeming goofy. It's a shame, because he shows off his physical talent rather well in films like Tai Chi 2. Overall, Yukari fans will probably seek this one out, otherwise there's a lot better when it comes to HK action.
