Blonde Fury Reviews
And that's not a bad thing.
Unfortunately though, this sequel tends to lack the production values, and directorial efforts of the first - going through a collection of directors, and hairstyles (which is slightly entertaining) but keeping the same hard-knock fight scenes which we all know and love.
In fact, Rothrock claims to this day that her favourite movie that shows her fighting best, is Blonde Fury (Above The Law 2). And, that's possibly quite true!
Whereas Righting Wrongs was Yuen Biao's time to shine, Blonde Fury is all about the Roth! She actually looks like she is having a great time, which comes across quite well in her character.
Cynthia is aided by ex-boyfriend Meng Hoi, and the fantastic Chin Sui Hoi (brother to the amazing Chin Kar Lok), who both get to show their own skills throughout the show, battling bad guy superstars Billy Chow and Chung Fat, along with a host of other (very hurt looking) stunt-men.
Definitely crazy, often hilarious, and continuously action packed, this gem of a mess is pure entertainment from start to finish!
(1989) The Blonde Fury
(Chinese with no English subtitles)
The weakest one Cynthia had ever done while still making films in Hong Kong but still better than most martial art films she did do coming out of the United States. Saw this film from a recorded Japanese Laserdisc onto VHS that had no english subtitles at all making it even more harder to understand, but do know this was real life kickboxer champion Cynthia Rothrock's final film of 5 Chinese film she did before trying out for Hollywood produced, crappy martial art movies. Some of the martial arts is still pheonominal to look at and they're others that're not memorable at all particularly the ending. Anyways, some of the more memorable fights also included the same factory Samo Hung used at the end of "Dragons Forever" and the bamboo stick fight against the baddie using a long copper pipe! And the fights are still hard hitting despite the plot being non-existent.
