Magnificent Warriors (1987)
Reviewed by: hokazak on 1999-12-09
One of the first 3 Michelle Khan movies, from the period before her"retirement." Michelle is a biplane pilot/spy working against the occupying Japanese forces in China in the late 1930s or early 1940s. Richard Ng is a poncho-wearing itinerant swindler who accidentally gets tangled up in Michelle's mission to rescue a local ruler, who is pretending to support the Japanese occupation forces while actually working to subvert their hold on his province. Some nice stunts, and Michelle w/ a bullwhip (Indianna Jones-style) and comic relief from Richard Ng make it fairly watchable, but it's definitely not up to the standards of Yes Madam! and Royal Warriors/In The Line of Duty. [The Indonesian version with Dutch subtitles that I saw was nearly ruined by the terrible English dubbing and the annoying musical score.]
