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

All Critics (1)

The most interesting item of all is a pair of alternate endings to the film.

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)

½

Extremely cheesy and dated, but there are a couple of undeniably amazing moments, such as an epic arm-mounted "fist cam" punch, and a heart-stopping drop out of a helicopter.

Every one looks so young in this movie. Good story, good action, good theme, different ending than most martial arts movies.

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!
