Great action flick but only tolerable dubbing and image...

"I really liked this film as Moon Lee shows some great fighting action throughout the movie. When she stretches during one training scene, you gotta pay attention. The bad part of this dvd is that the master used was already in bad shape. It really just looks like an old vhs copy that's been degrading over the years. And the dubbing...as usual, is quite bad. Can't anyone ever make a decent voice dub over?"
A must see for any fan of HK Femme Fatale action

"Kickboxer's Tears showcases the talents of one of the greatest Hong Kong action actresses, Moon Lee. After her brother is killed in a kickboxing match, Moon seeks revenge against the killer (Billy Chow) only to have his mistress (Yukari Oshima) wanting Moon's blood! There are some serious, brutal, no-holds-barred fights that will delight any fan of Hong Kong cinema.If you're not a fan of Moon Lee and Yukari Oshima you will be after seeing this movie. Don't pass this one up. You might also want to check out another Moon and Yukari classic, "Angel Terminators 2.""

"Moon Lee is THE ONLY saving grace this film has.She does good acting,has good fighting skills-but against poor filming,and cardboard characters-it doesn't hold water.
Despite the film dates, it seems like an early seventies film and not a good one.
If you're looking for HK femme fatale fighting-Heroic Trio,Executioners,Wing Chun,or even Zero Woman (Japanese-but fits the genre).
"I must avenge my brothers death"-hmmm,never heard that line before...."
