This film was a HK smash hit when it was first shown in 1985. If you watch it in now, you will still notice this as the movie that popularise the female super cop characters (eg In the line of duty 3,4).
The copy I ordered was from Amazon itself, it had Cantonese and English audio. Both audio sets were fine to me.
Why 4 stars?
Well, I felt that the main attractions, Michelle and Cynthia did not get enough screen time as much as I would have liked. A proper interview and a biography showcase of Rothrock should have been included as everyone knows that she made her name first in HK before being famous in the USA.
It's a pity Cynthia and Michelle could not have made anymore movies together as I really enjoyed their work in this film.
Despite the flaws, this action film is still worthy of collection for those that like women martial kicking!
