Enjoyable Hong Kong actioner
23 August 2007 | by gridoonSee all my reviews

Although this movie has that feeling of sloppiness not uncommon in low-budget HK action films of the 90's, it does offer two beautiful, brave women in the main roles, and I can think of many worse ways to spend some time than watching them do their thing. While neither Jade Leung nor Anita Lee are, as far as I know, real-life martial artists, they throw themselves into their roles with energy and spirit. The fight scenes have a Jackie Chan flavor to them, with props and surroundings coming into play. Jade plays a suicidal, edgy cop that is clearly modelled on Mel Gibson's character from "Lethal Weapon", and she does some impressive stunts, including a probably "Police Story 3"-inspired scene where she hangs on to a flying helicopter! (maybe she was doubled for parts of the stunt, but it's also clear that she did a lot of it herself). Anita is sweet and girlish, but when it's time for action, she's all business. You gotta love a bikini cutie with a gun! My main complaints about "Satin Steel" are the somewhat jarring moments of graphic violence (including a cut-off ear) in what is generally a lightweight film, and also the over-use of slow motion in some action scenes. On the other hand, the over-use of slow motion when Jade Leung is running is more than welcome. (**1/2)
