"I watched this after watching Royal Warriors (aka In the Line of Duty II, also with Michelle Yeoh) and this film was great as well. Yes, Madam(aka In the Line of Duty or Police Assassins) is about two top police women from their respective countries teaming up to retrieve a micro film which is evidence to put away some mob guy. Well, he's a bad guy with a lot of bodyguards and thats all you need to know. As the ...reviewer said, this is sort of like Rush Hour in reverse. The fighting is ever so awesome and brutal, I cringed several times during this one. Cynthia Rothrock shows a lot of her best stuff here, and Michelle is awesome as usual. .... The last fighting scenes are just magical with great production by Sammo Hung; plenty of crazy kick stunts and flips. However, the dvd isnt the greatest sound wise. It seems some of the sound effects were toned down, and the supposed 5.1 dolby isn't very noticable at all. If you got a Region 2 dvd player w/ PAL converter, then get Hong Kong Legends version which is under the name Police Assassins, I believe the sound was redone and the picture quality is second to none. Tsiu Hark and Sammo both make humorous guest appearances in the film as well. If you liked Royal Warriors, you'll love this and besides, its the prequel to Royal. I believe any martial arts fan will be impressed by this one. Check out Michelles other greats such as Wing Chun, Royal Warriors, CTHD (Crouching Tiger...duh), Magnificent Warriors. The only other Cynthia Rothrock movie that I could safely recommend is Righting Wrongs which is totally awesome. I would definitely recommend a buy with all these titles including Yes, Madam...check it out...hope this and my other HK flicks reviews are helpful."
Great HK Action!

"If you like action watch this Yeoh/Rothrock production! The final fighting scenes are not to be missed. The middle section does drag a bit because of some lame comedy but the ending makes up for it. Also catch ROYAL WARRIORS which is part of the same series."
Not the cynthia rothrock movie

"I bought the movie and had to return it because it is not the Yes Madam with Cynthia Rothrock in it. This is some stupid english dubbed movie that makes no sense at all and is very ignorant. If your looking for Cynthia, look some where else this is not the right movie."
Pretty (ma)damn good

"this movie had awesome fight sequences, ones that dont seem to exist in the 90's or 1000's anymore. michelle yeoh's martial arts ability was quite impressive in this movie(her first fighting movie) cynthia was also fantastic. This could have had it all if the middle wasn't so boring. The final action sequence though is amazing, one of yeoh's best"
