Goofs

When Reeve is strangling both Gypsy and Helen, Gypsy looks down at the sword she is holding. In the first shot, the sword was different from the sword that Gypsy was holding a few scenes ago. As the shot changes, the sword becomes the same sword that Gypsy was holding earlier. See more »

Alternate Versions

US version has 19 minutes of scenes deleted from original Hong Kong version, as well as scenes shuffled out of order. Mostly crucial character development and unnecessary cuts of minor violence, making the movie nearly unwatchable. See more »

Pretty Decent Fun Film
26 November 2004 | by cdp181See all my reviews

Well don't expect anything deep an meaningful. Most of the fight scenes are pretty decent. The two leading ladies are quite endearing but their lack of HK action background shows at times. The ending maybe lacks something but I quite enjoyed it none the less. The cheesy humour isn't probably going to appeal to anyone who hasn't watched a bunch of HK films but if your down with that sort of thing and have a couple of hours to fill with something meaningless you could do a lot worse than this. (OK so you could do better but.......)

Certainly on a par with most of the Hollywood blockbuster action drivel.

7/10
