Movie Reviews

Amazing
Simon Booth | UK | 01/26/2003
(5 out of 5 stars)

"ROYAL WARRIORS is simply one of the best action movies ever made. It features the bone-crunchingly brutal style of Hong Kong choreography that was perfected in the 80's following the renaissance initiated by Sammo Hung and Jackie Chan, and it has rarely looked better than it does in this movie. This is text book action cinema, and Michelle Yeoh is remarkable."
Michelle yeoh at her best

"Wow...the martial arts in this movie really surprised me considering how raw and brutal some of the scenes were. Great movie with a great story. For those that don't know, this is the second installment of the In The Line of Duty series...I highly suggest checking out In The Line of Duty IV...but RW is awesome in terms of martial arts, you can expect a really brutal michelle yeoh in this one...story centers around michelle yeoh as a police officer along with a japanese police officer and an annoying security guard who prevents a plane from being hijacked by terrorists for the purpose of freeing a convict. They killed all the terrorists along with the convict, but then the convict's 3 best War buddies plot a revenge on the 3 individuals, and the rest of the movie is about pure survival...there are many dramatic parts in the film, but you'll be rooting for michelle all the way...definitely one of her best..."
Don't mess with yeoh

"this movie was really good, the action sequences have a nice flare to them that movies these days seem to lack. yeoh's martial arts skill and preformance make this a pretty enjoyable movie. I think this movie, Yes madam, the tai chi master, and supercop show her in her top martial art preformance."
A Real Kicker!

"Typical over-the-top, "nothing suceeds like excess" HK action thriller that works from the first scene to the last. Yeoh plays intrepid RHKPD Inspector Michelle Yip (who evidentally has her own special weapons factory!), who finds herself entangled with deadly terrorists trying to avenge the death of their comrades at her hands. She is aided by a Chinese security expert and a Japanese cop, but it is really her movie.The fights are bone-crushingly brutal, and the action scenes as a whole put similar American fare to shame.Well-directed, slam-bang action!"
