Brigitte Lin is in possession of this instrument of destruction and she gives one of those sexually amorphous baleful performances that I love so much. Sometimes she gives just a hint of a smile that makes me melt. Yuen Biao has the most screen time as he plays a security agent who is given charge of the lyre by Brigitte in an effort to smoke out all her enemies and gain revenge on them for killing her parents
Some good action and ornate costumes with a
lot of pageantry mixed in. Some of the bad guys are quite interesting all
decked up in flashy attire. At times the movie drags which brings down
the rating and for my taste there was perhaps too much reliance on wires
to create the effects. Carina Lau and Wu Ma also have good parts.
