As much as Red Fists stumbles, like many low-budget productions from the era, the film-makers smartly knew to pick up the pace when it came to the action sequences. Yu Rong-Guang served as the action director on this picture, and after seeing the results displayed, it's a little puzzling as to why he only worked in the role in one other movie. While the action isn't mind-blowing and there isn't quite enough of it, what is here is well-done and exciting enough (especially given what he had to work with) hinting that Yu had the seeds to becoming a very dependable action director if given the chance.

Summary: NULL

Routine would be puttingit mildly in discussing thisgirls'n'guns time-waster. Yu Rong-Guang is a tough mainlander cop in HK, on the trail of counterfeit plates; Sharon Kwok is also assigned to the case, but she ends up spending most of her time trying to keep her partner within arms reach. Have you seen this plot before. (The answer is yes, idiot.) The baddies in this one seem to have a fetish for shooting machine-guns at anything made out of glass (windows, mirrors, even a greenhouse!), and our dynamic duo head off to China in pursuit. At one particularly romantic moment, they share a delectible meal of dog; Yu Rong-Guang gets dibs at the balls. After we've regained our appetite, there's a big shootout, more machine-guns, an explosion, some fu, and Kwok to the rescue of her partner's kidnapped son on the swampy border between Hong Kong and China. Nobody can find any glass to shoot at, but we do get a nifty helicopter explosion that looks as if a thermonuclear device hit it.

(2/4)
