No fooling around
A Chinese girl goes illegally to Hong Kong to look for work and ends up as a prostitute. A Japanese female cop teams up with her to fight the bad guys. Average girls-with-guns action movie from Hong Kong. In the first half the various strings of the story are somewhat hard to follow, but maybe that's because the German version is cut down to 76 minutes only (thanks Mr Editor - need a new axe-blade?). Cynthia Luster has a great fight scene against the drug dealers' boss in the end; it was not made to look artistic or spectacular - it's rough, realistic, go for the throat - I liked the down-to-earth attitude of the director here, no fooling around. Anyhow, all in all nobody can deny this movie is `a dime a dozen' and I voted 4/10.
