Storyline

Lulu Wong, a rich socialite, is actually the masked vigilante Silver Hawk. She meets Mr. Man. Mr. Man is with the police, and he has been asked to arrest Silver Hawk. At first, Mr. Man does not realize that Lulu Wong is the same person he grew to respect at a kung fu school when they were both children. A professor is kidnapped. He has the secret to a computer chip that can tap the human brain, which he wants to use to assist mankind. The daughter of the CEO/founder of a cell phone company gets kidnapped by the same evil-doers. To discover the plan and stop it, Lulu Wong, as Silver Hawk; and policeman Man must do several choreographed fight scenes against henchmen, use the help of the professor's computer genius assistant, join forces, break into the bad guys fortress and save everyone.

Goofs

Silver Hawk's trademark silver BMW bike seems to gain and lose the magnetic grapple/rocket launcher tubes at random - most notably when she escapes from her first encounter at Wolfe's lair - when she summons the bike, the tubes are there, but when Superintendent Man catches up with her, they're gone (although you can see the mounting points on the fairing).

Quotes

Rich Man: [about Silver Hawk] It is my duty to bring her to justice.
Lulu Wong: [quite amused] You...are going to arrest her?
Rich Man: That's right.
Lulu Wong: You really think you can catch her?

Michel Yeoh in one of her best movies!
1 February 2004 | by masamura2000See all my reviews

My wife and I didn't expect much from this film, knowing that it has the worst box office in the past ten years for a Chinese New Year release and how much we loathed "The Touch"... However, being a sucker for bad movies, I opted for the action movie rather than the other usual comedies and I wasn't disappointed at all. Yes, the dialogues might be a bit dodgy, a common flaw amongst Hong Kong production nowadays, trying to look "Hollywood-esque" but we were there for the action and we got what we were looking for, great fight sequence with each character having his/her own fighting style.

I have seen most of Yeoh's movies and this one ranked right at the top with "crouching tiger hidden dragon". Most of her film roles were forgettable but "silver hawk" at least leaves a more lasting impression albeit Yeoh really begin to look her years. I certainly hope that a sequel would follow but judging from the box-office, I might be pushing too far.
