Angela has comedic potential

"This is one of her last efforts - and it might be her best. As usual, she's cute as can be, as she delivers lethal leg kicks to the baddies. Her efforts to enlist the aid of two old martial arts experts in her training are hilarious. In the final scene she dances her way to victory - one sexy number. The only fault I can find is that when she dresses as a boy, she's too pretty to be believable."
Slapstick and Kung-Fu.

"Very funny Angela Mao vehicle. She plays a character named Fei Fei who is seeking vengeance for the deaths of some friends she just met, as well as trying to help two older kung-fu masters decide who is the better fighter. Much comedy is provided by these two men. One is a drunk with a prominent red nose and the other is smoking something that causes hilariously goofy music to play whenever he takes a hit off his pipe. Angela is very funny, mixing in a good deal of slapstick with straight fighting, in the various combat scenes. Also funny are nods to both Clint Eastwood's man with no name and Henry Mancini's Pink Panther theme. Recomended to those looking for a more light hearted martial arts flick."

"If you are a fan of Angela Mao Ying this is the DVD to get. It features a number of innovative training and fighting scenes which lead up to a spectacular conclusion. We owe the films great action scenes to Angela's skill in Kung Fu and also the films great Martial Arts Director Jackie Chan. This Kung Fu fable is a must see and certainly one you should add to your collection. Enjoy."
