One of the best from HK's golden age!
A sequel to Above The Law (Righting Wrongs) by name only, and mainly for the Western market, this insane movie is a completely different kind of film that trades the serious action, thriller, for the non-stop action, comedy.
And that's not a bad thing.
Unfortunately though, this sequel tends to lack the production values, and directorial efforts of the first – going through a collection of directors, and hairstyles (which is slightly entertaining) but keeping the same hard-knock fight scenes which we all know and love.
In fact, Rothrock claims to this day that her favourite movie that shows her fighting best, is Blonde Fury (Above The Law 2). And, that's possibly quite true!
Whereas Righting Wrongs was Yuen Biao's time to shine, Blonde Fury is all about the Roth! She actually looks like she is having a great time, which comes across quite well in her character.
Cynthia is aided by ex-boyfriend Meng Hoi, and the fantastic Chin Sui Hoi (brother to the amazing Chin Kar Lok), who both get to show their own skills throughout the show, battling bad guy superstars Billy Chow and Chung Fat, along with a host of other (very hurt looking) stunt-men.
Definitely crazy, often hilarious, and continuously action packed, this gem of a mess is pure entertainment from start to finish!
