So Close
Hong Kong 2002
Directed by Corey Yuen.


A pair of sister assassins (Shu Qi and Vicki Zhao) are hired by a businessman to kill a few of his associates, putting him in charge of the corporation. Meanwhile, an exceptional forensics detective (Karen Mok) will stop at nothing to break the case and bring the killers to justice. But with the corporation Japanese and all the girls Chinese, you know its just a matter of time before they team up against their common enemy. The plot doesn't make a whole lot of sense, but those three girls sure are hot. Packed with typical, gravity-defying Yuen fight scenes, which are wearing pretty thin these days, especially when performed by non martial artist types. But the final battle, against Yasuaki Kurata, is fantastic.

Rating: Marginally Recommended (Marginally Recommended)

Not a bad film. I was a little disapointed when one of the two sisters meets her demise, the fight sequences may have been a little predictable, but over all it makes this american want to keep seeing more Hong Kong action films.
