OK girlie action from Hong Kong.
This film stars the legendary ass-kicking babe Yukari Oshima and some other strong females. I'm not too familiar with the girls 'n guns genre but all I can say is that these are stylish and often exciting actioners, but don't come even near to those real masterpieces from Hong Kong. Midnight Angel has the old revenge type plot, and when the justice seems not to happen, these girls take law into their own hands and things WILL go right that way. Just watch out that flamethrower at the end of the film! I don't consider myself an admirer of this kind of cinema, but fans of this genre (like mr. Weisser!) will definitely have great time watching these chicks kick the truth and justice out of bad guys, usually males. No deep messages or nothing, just exciting and fresh gun action with lovely ladies in leading roles.
Not just my type, but still 6/10 movie experience, and avoid dubbed versions, as always. If possible, get the widescreen and subtitled version and experience the film as it should be.
