Sharon Yeung in a rare leading role
Trying to protect a policewoman (Sharon Yeung), an undercover cop shoots a criminal, exposes his identity, and is promptly marked for death by the organization he was working for. The hit-man (Philip Ko) completes the job, but during his escape he is shot dead by another policewoman from Sharon's squad. His partner and friend (Dick Wei) is not too pleased about that, and swears vengeance.
As it often happens in these low-budget Hong Kong action films, the story drags this one down, but the action scenes are worth your while. Sharon Yeung, one of the most underrated female action stars from Hong Kong, gets a rare leading role and is in good physical form. However, her final showdown against the almost indestructible Dick Wei is not as satisfying as it could have been. Oh, and if by any chance you can't get enough of the classic music theme from John Carpenter's "Halloween", don't worry - you can listen to it again here! (**1/2)
