Official Girls with Guns thread

Recommended Posts

Apologies if this already exists, I searched for one but could not find it. 

A couple of years ago I did a piece on my blog about this curious sub-genre, I've always loved this genre, the films were never that great but the actresses were game usually rose above the material through sheer personality. Yukari Oshima. Moon Lee. Michiko Nishiwaki. Cynthia Khan. Kara Hui Ying Fong. Let this thread be a memorial to those women who briefly lit a fire. 

For those interested, that piece can be seen here https://cinematichorizons.wordpress.com/2014/01/09/fists-of-doom-sammos-angels/

Not nearly as good as GWG movies of the Golden Era, The Special Female Force (2016) was a nice re-boot of Inspector Wears Skirts movies. I thought it was one of the best, if not the best, attempts of the last decade in GWG genre.  Unexpectedly brutal bits in action scenes, OK-ish shootsouts, Jade Leung and lots of cute Asian girls.

Well, it was announced that there will be a Special Female Force 2, to be shot in Macau and will have more fight scenes than the original. Jade Leung, Jeana Ho and Hidy Yu will be starring in it.

Here's the American VHS cover from the film above, but with cover art taken from Angel Enforcers with Sharon Yeung:

Looks like a really fun movie, have you watched this one yet @DrNgor

I've seen Angel 2. There's a decent action scene in the beginning and the finale is a huge Rambo-esque scene complete with explosions, thousands of bullets, arrows, and a nice fight in which Moon Lee fights Yuen Tak and another guy. Everything else is "meh". The first movie had better pacing.

I haven't seen Angel Enforcers yet.

I reviewed this one 3 years ago, & pretty much agree with your thoughts -
