Talk about a glamour vehicle. Angela radiates at the head of a terrific cast, the story ticks along at a fair pace, the fu is of a high standard. And there's even a few laughs. Check out what happens to the fire-breathing bodyguard.
Reviewer Score: 9
On top of that, we get perhaps the closest to the first full frontal nude shot in a big-budget HK film. (If anyone wishes to correct this assertion, I'd love to hear it). The unknown actress who plays Lotus's mother (possibly Kao Cheng Yu) bears nearly all while trying to escape the lusty clutches of the evil Hao Shi. And Frankie Chan's music score is one of the best I've heard in ages.
I found the movie a bit slow at the start, but give it ten or fifteen minutes and you'll be hooked. Recommended.
