Review
by Kozo:
     The best English title of the year! At first glance, this action flick appears to be a product of the early eighties. It isnít though. Itís just remarkably cheap and sophomoric. Yuen Biao and Cynthia Khan are a Hong Kong/Mainland cop team who go undercover ala Supercop. The pairing is fun in flashes, but nothing really new or interesting goes on in this movie, which exists as a triumph of unimaginative HK filmmaking. Everything needs a jumpstart: story, action, stunts, acting. Tough Beauty and the Sloppy Slop gets points for being cheap and straightforward, but loses them all for boring and useless action, and even worse supporting actors. Yuen Biao: has a more talented actor/stuntman ever appeared in more useless and lousy movies? It's hard to be too cruel to this movie, because there really isn't that much to hate. It just exists, like pocket lint. (Kozo 1995)
