Moon Lee shines, but nothing else does
No matter how many HK movies you watch, you never quite get 100% used to their frequently schizophrenic mix of extreme brutal violence and broad slapstick comedy. "Enter The Lady Boxer" / "Nocturnal Demon" is basically a serial killer story, but most of the time it wants (and usually fails) to make you laugh with its inept cops, naive young girls, blind old men, etc. Moon Lee is both cute and sexy here (the fact that she spends the entire last section of the movie in knee-high boots doesn't hurt, either!), and her fight scenes are top-notch (one has her doing a dizzying series of spin kicks while she has roller-skates on, another has her using a broom like a spear!). The bad news is that there are only 4 of them in the entire film, and none of the material in-between is really worth watching. If you just fast-forward to Moon's fight scenes, you will miss very little. ** out of 4.
