entertaining hodge-podge-of-a-movie is actually a composite of an unfinished
Philip Ko | Yukari Oshima project from the Philippines and a Taiwanese
actioner featuring three kick-ass female assassins, originally called
Lian Se Liang [Bright Eyes] directed by Bao Kao in 1992.
Normally these 'patchwork' productions should be avoided for obvious reasons,
but this one manages to satisfy any fan of girls-with-guns action. There
are also several sex scenes in the movie, more graphic than usual for
begins with the stylized Yukari Oshima segments, concentrating on internal
conflicts between Interpol and the Hong Kong police as both attempt to
stop a ring of international drug smugglers. The real plot deals with
three female Interpol agents who have a 'license to kill' and take out
one criminal after another on their way to the big boss. However, one
of the girls - Rosa (Chi Kuan-Chun) - is having serious misgivings about
her profession would like to be released from the assassin squad. Her
boss, the ambitious Captain Chan, refuses Rosa's request and pushes the
girl to keep the body count on the increase.
