The Skinny: Action, action and more action. Everything else is mediocre, but the insanely creative action sequences more than make up for the film's numerous faults.
 
Review
by Kozo:
There's this missing piece of microfilm and Michelle Yeoh and Cynthia Rothrock team up to get it. Plot-wise, that's about it for this lightweight action picture from director Corey Yuen. There are some miniature hijinks featuring a trio of losers played by John Sham, Mang Hoi and Tsui Hark (yep, that Tsui Hark), but little other wackiness exists in the movie. Little acting exists either, but that's okay, because Yes Madam makes up for all of the above deficiencies with some of the most bone-crunching action sequences ever seen. Michelle Yeoh and Cynthia Rothrock both do some spectacular work, and Corey Yuen keeps the action front and center. After witnessing all the glass-breaking mayhem, you may even forgive Michelle Yeoh for dressing like a member of the Go-Gos. This movie is dated, but does anyone really care? I don't. Besides, there's a chapter skip on my remote control. (Kozo 1997)
