Michiko Nishiwaki, Yukari Oshima, Cynthia Khan and Moon Lee

The Avenging Quartet

AKA: Avenging Quartet


Director: Wing Siu

Stars: Moon Lee, Yukari Oshima, Cynthia Khan, Michiko Nishiwaki, Waise Lee

You might think a movie featuring four of Asia's top female action stars promoted with artwork like the picture above would kick serious ass. Unfortunately, that isn't the case here. Besides a few decent fights (including a pretty good one between Michiko and Yukari) and the typical "everything but the kitchen sink" HK finale, there's really nothing of interest in this film. Most of the running time is dedicated to the cliched (yet still convoluted) plot, which concerns the women's connection to art thief Waise Lee, who holds a valuable Japanese painting. This movie isn't bad -- Moon Lee and Yukari Oshima fans will find at least a couple of scenes worth watching here. It's just very disappointing considering the talent involved.
