Welcome to our blog. We are making this because we know that there are not so many websites/blogs specialized in 80s-90s Mainland China’s movies. We are talking about kung fu movies, action movies and other genres that are not really well known outside China itself.

Deadly Target (刑侦风云)
Deadly Target (刑侦风云)
Dir: Godfrey Ho / Phillip Ko Cast: Oshima Yukari , Sharon Yeung Pan-Pan, John Cheung, Edu Manzano,
Phillip Ko Fei Plot: The Hk police force and the Mainland police force work together to
stop one of the largest arms dealers in Asia.
Notes: The movie is considered as a Filipino/Hk
co-production by lots of people. On Chinese websites the movie is stated as
Mainland production. I don’t know which version is true though. The print I
have is the Mainland’s. I will spend some words about the dvd (I will talk
about the movie later). The print used was in really bad condition, sometime
the video just becomes like somebody peed on it, vintage feeling at its best.
The movie was broadcasted on cctv with much higher resolution and quality. I am
pretty sure the movie was released in HK on vcd or LD or vhs with English
subtitles. Be aware that if you buy the Mainland vers. You won’t have English
Opinion: Here I am
reviewing a movie from director Godfrey Ho (famous for Ninja movies) set in Manila. When I bought the
movie I did not know anything about it, only that there was Oshima Yukari as
one of the main protagonists. Let’s say this straight: the movie is bad. The
story is nothing new, the acting is less than average, the action is… pretty
decent, I admit that.
Yukari and Sharon Yeung show their skills with weapons and not, but the movie is
something you do not want to scream about. I mean ,yeah, you have some good
moments (thanks to those 2 girls), you have bullet ballet (cheap special
effects), you have stupid comedy (the ladyboy saving the cop? Oh yes!), but the
movie just did not take my interest, sometimes I just wanted to fast forward to
see how it ended. You wanna skip it? Do it, you will not lose anything. You are
a big Oshima Yukari fan? Give it a try, you might like it.
