This is simply Moon Lee at her best - she is involved
in some great action and looks beyond adorable whether in jeans or army
fatigues. There is action galore here with rarely any time passing
before the next fight of some kind. It is an interesting combination of
typical "girls with guns" good guys vs. the bad guys - but it also throws
in a large element of Eastern Condors type adventure. It makes for a thoroughly
enjoyable action vehicle that any Moon fan will appreciate.
In this one her police boss (Wilson Lam) assembles
a small team of specialized men (and Moon) to rescue a VIP gwielo in the
jungles of Thailand. Once there though Lam is ambushed by a female assassin
and badly wounded - and so it is up to Moon to take over the mission (only
of course, after she revenges herself on the female in bloody style!).
She leads the team deep into the jungles and they fight nearly every step
of the way. The violence escalates tremendously and takes on a ferocious
nature. In the rescue attempt her team is nearly wiped out and the body
count is huge. Then she has to return to Hong Kong where the action picks
up again with a vicious fight against Shing Fui-on - by the end of this
film Moon must have needed a long vacation - but probably not to Thailand!
In the cast also are Johnny Weng as the kidnapper, Stephen Chan as one
of Moon's men and Jimmy Lee as her top supervisor.
My rating for this film: 7.5
