Hong Kong title CUO TI ZHUI JI ZU HE [Lethal Body Strike Team]
director: Wei Tung (as Stephen Wai Tung)
starring: Jade Leung · Jordan Chan · Yu Rongguang · Bao Cheng · Guy
Lai · Ng Kit
don't judge this film by the cover [nor by the English title], giving
the impression that it's a cutesy action comedy. It decidedly
is not. Rather, here is a dark, violent, even misogynistic motion picture
from legendary action/stunt director Wei Tung starring Jade Leung. She
is quite good here, showing more diversity as an actress. Also significant
is Jordan Chan as Chan Hong, an intelligent and very resourceful villain
who doesn't have to constantly prove himself with random acts of chaotic
violence. The film is an action-based thriller that finds Yeung (Jade
Leung) as the target of a vendetta by a cruel cop-killer. This sets
the scene for many frantic showdowns and action sequences.
Leung, born in November 1969, gained overnight popularity with the BLACK
CAT series but then managed to hold on to her star status for
more than two decades. Over the years, she is best known for Ivan Lai's
OF SNAKE with Cecilia Yip, and LEOPARD
HUNTING with Yukari Oshima. Ms Leung has since relocated to
Beijing where she recently starred in SPECIAL
FEMALE FORCE under the alias Jay Leung Jing.
Hong Kong film with English/Chinese subtitles; widescreen (16:9), uncut
(96 minutes) in DVD encoded for REGION ONE NTSC, playable on any American
Extras include Jade Leung theatrical trailers.
Recommended for Mature Audiences.
