Cute Foster Sister

Summary: Pretty good actioner

The title is a bit misleading. The story chops up about equally between the title char (Sheh Ming) and her intended (Chen Kang or Tsai Hai Fai). The way the viewpoint chops and changes is quite confusing at times, and the introduction of the main villain more than half-way in, only adds to this.
As with most HK movies with a girl masquerading as a boy, the act is entirely unconvincing, and one wonders why they bother.......
However, there's plenty of action, including a variety of styles, notably Swallow Boxing and (a new one on me !) Horse Boxing !
No classic, but worth a look.
