Review
by Kozo:
Not too important or interesting comedy about Cheung Man, who plays a kick-butt superheroine who wears a mask and fights evildoers. Sadly, she loses her memory and is taken in by a kindly prostitute (Chingmy Yau) and the prostitute's boyfriend (Jacky Cheung, who made fifty movies in 1992). Hijinks ensue. Eventually, plot arrives in the form of Ken Lo, who offed her triad boss dad. Incensed (or mildly perturbed; it's hard to tell with Cheung Man), she resolves to lay waste to Lo and his band of ruffians. Minor action punctuates this otherwise interminable action-comedy which plods along until it mercifully ends. Fans of Cheung Man should dig her leading role, but this is hardly the vehicle to explore her talents. Directed by Taylor Wong, the genius behind Triads: The Inside Story. (Kozo 1996)
