Does it rise above the limitations of Hong Kong action cinema? Definitely not. Is it fun to watch? Most certainly, yes.

Audience Reviews for Above the Law (Zhi fa xian feng)

One of the bestest Cynthia Rothrock movies where it filmed in Hong Kong with co-star Yuen Biao. Cynthia's stand-out fight scene is a weapon's duel with another American martial arts mistress Karen Shepard - amazing!
