She Shoots Straight (1990)
Reviewed by: STSH on 1999-12-29
Summary: Very good action-revenge melodrama
Mina and Ling are one great fighting team, and the way they polish off the baddies in the later scenes is some of the best fightin' fem stuff I've ever seen. The acting is totally unrestrained but effective, especially by Carina Lau. Joyce Godenzi is pretty good too, and I can't understand why she hasn't made more of this sort of movie. A young and rather chubby Sandra Ng also features. And the actress who played the feisty mother (possibly Dang Bik Wan ) is a scream.
The final battle between Joyce and Anges is, surprisingly, a fizzer, and the film ends in a whimper. But the rest of the film more than makes up for it.
Definitely recommended.
