Hong Kong Show Girl (1996)
Reviewed by: STSH on 2001-03-30
Summary: A ripoff which is far better than the original
This is a cheap take-off of the much higher budget and very similarly titled HONG KONG SHOWGIRLS (it was released just days later), but it's much more entertaining. That's not to say it's any good ! HK SHOWGIRLS is possibly the weakest of the "slightly scary horror/adult" films I've seen.

HK SHOW GIRL is somewhat different. It combines Cat III nonsense and violent action pretty much at random. Some of the action sequences are pretty okay, but the Cat III stuff is dull, and the story is all over the place. Only if you're bored.

Previously published:
Pretty dull. Meandering and very gory story about a small group of violent crimes led by Tsui Kam Kong (the whites of whose eyes have never been so exposed !). Occasional quite good nude/sex scenes, which tended to erupt into violence. A few okay fight scenes too. But much too confusing, filmed almost entirely without flair, and it was almost impossible to feel anything for any of these characters. And the ending was VERY unconvincing.
