"Not many martial arts here but Cynthia is great kickassing some bad guys and looking always more skilled than every opponent. The usual police story but worthy to be seen because of Rothrock performances."
Cynthia Rothrock- American kung fu movie fighting queen

"Cynthia Rothrock is a policewoman who goes undercover as a newspaper reporter to find out information on the boss of a newspaper station. The boss is suspected of using the newspaper station to counterfeit money. Hoi Meng (the co-director) stars as a sleazy newspaper photographer who can never quite capture his pictures in time. He and Chin Siu Hou help Rothrock bust the counterfeit operation. Chin Siu Hou was magnificent in Fist of Legend , and looks just as good in his fight in this movie. He goes up against Billy Chow who also starred in Fist of Legend. I would go over the story more if it was better, but it was unbearable at times, especially at the end. Luckily there are a few good fights.
One thing I found very interesting is that Cynthia Rothrock and Hoi Meng have at least a few scenes together, and they were actually going out in real life at the time. It gives the movie a bit of a unique touch and allows Cynthia to really let loose and play around with her character.
The end is a bit odd. It involves all Americans. Rothrock takes on Vincent Lynn and Jeff Falcon. Don't expect anything too spectacular, just a good action scene. This movie is inferior in every way to Above the Law, except for the hard hitting action in the middle of the film with Chin Siu Hou, Rothrock, Billy Chow and a Thai boxer. This is not Rothrock's very best performance, but this is the toughest I have ever seen her look. I was a bit diasppointed with Billy Chow's fights, but he is still one of the toughest looking dudes to ever hit the movie screen. Rothrock and Chow only have 1 fight. It is only average, but at the very start of the fight Rothrock throws a couple of full force kicks that Billy Chow blocks with the slightest of ease. Just watch this movie for the action, cause the story is hard to sit through. Luckily it is only 83 minutes long. The music is the only thing besides the fights that helped get me through the movie.
The Deltamac DVD has good picture and sound, and you will have to retranslate a lot of the subtitles yourself."
