Review
by Kozo:

Excellent action picture from Yuen Woo-Ping features Cynthia Khan and Donnie Yen at their brawling best. They two play Seattle cops who track an escaped suspect to Hong Kong and get involved in stopping some dirty drug dealing and other assorted cover-up crimes. It turns out that this suspect actually witnessed a murder by a U.S. drug kingpin. Michael Wong is dubbed heavily as their U.S. cohort, whoís entrusted with bringing the witness back to the United States. 

The fights in this film are top-notch. Donnie Yen and Cynthia Khan are both terrific, with Yen edging Khan due to the fact that he had no apparent stunt doubles. Khan does some impressive stunts, but sometimes she looks just a bit too muscular, if you get my meaning. Michael Wong uses stunt doubles too, but itís all forgivable, because damn if these arenít some of the best stunt doubles around. The fact that people can actually walk after the beatings they take in this movie are beyond me. Sure, the plot and story arenít given much attention, but this is a kung-fu fanís dream. In movies like these, just be glad that the plot doesnít slow the movie down. (Kozo 1998)
