Though this film has Yukari Oshima starring in
it – it has nothing to do with the girls with guns classic Angels. Since
that film helped kick start the entire girls with guns genre back in 1988
there have been a multitude of films with the word angel in it. Some of
them are pretty good – but the vast majority are low budget knockoffs that
have little to redeem them.
This one appears to be possibly a TV production
and it had no sub-titles. Still for the most part it was fairly easy to
follow. There is not a lot of action until the last 20-minutes – but Yukari
gets a lot of face time and a real opportunity to act and does a fine job.
And how many other films are there that have Yukari doing a love scene!
Here she is a HK cop and her sister (I think)
is falsely arrested for drug smuggling after drugs are planted in her luggage.
Yukari along with her partner try to find out who is responsible, but every
lead seems to go nowhere. Her sister breaks out of prison and now Yukari
must break the law in order to protect her. The ending of the film has
a few unexpected twists and gets surprisingly intense – but this one is
really only for Yukari worshippers.
