police officers are assigned a mission of protecting a witness scheduled
to testify against her ex-boyfriend, a top gangster kingpin. Things get
complicated when one of the cops, Lisa (Sharon Yeung), decides to protect
her father's honor and take matters into her own hands. Of course, partner
Mona (Moon Lee) must challenge her decision.
the English language version runs a couple minutes shorter (80 minutes
compared to 84 for the HK release), racier scenes with nudity and drug-use
have been added. This is typical of a 'Godfrey Ho' production. Often he
would add or delete scenes depending on the projected marketplace and
then call it a new movie [In this case, both PRINCESS MADAM
and UNDER POLICE PROTECTION are considered separate
films]. Officially, his company - Filmark Studios - released 221 movies
between 1973-1995. During this time, his producer/manager was the elusive
Thomas Tang, a man who never granted an interview and never held a face-to-face
meeting. In 1996, the Filmark Studio building in Hong Kong was destroyed
by a fire, reportedly killing Mr Tang. But many sources insist that he
didn't exist, and rather Godfrey Ho was Thomas Tang for all those years.
movie is often referenced as being Moon Lee's best. While it is true that
she's playing a rather complicated character here and her bond with Sharon
Yeung seems totally authentic, it's difficult to dismiss her classics
TERMINATORS and KILLER
ANGELS. Or, for that matter, her out-of-character villainous role
SHOCK! YES MADAM . Ms Lee quit the business in 1994 to open a
ballet school in Hong Kong. Then, in 2001, she got married and moved to
Denver Colorado where she prefers not to talk about her movies.
