The Skinny: Girls-with-guns flick that's far from a fine example of the genre. Featuring decent stuntwork but bad everything else.
Review
by Kozo:
     This Hong Kong-made Lethal Weapon rip-off features Jade Leung as the insane wacky cop and Anita Lee as the sensible partner. The two are sent to track gun-running bad guys in Indonesia, but they end up battling each other instead for the most insipid reasons possible. Vanishing Son Russell Wong appears as the love interest, and there's even a rare Hong Kong love scene between he and Leung. What does it all amount to? Absolutely nothing. This action flick is average as all hell, and is ultimately undone by cheap action and a meandering story. The fight sequences are cartoony to a fault; there are times when Jade Leung's foot clearly DOES NOT connect with a bad guy and he still reels in pain. At the very least, Leung manages some impressive looking stuntwork, but it's not enough to save this picture. Also, the antics with partner Anita Lee and her idiot boyfriend are insipid beyond belief. If you have a copy of this movie, save this for a rainy day. Then then take a nap when it comes on. (Kozo 1996)
