Editorial Reviews:

A crooked businessman hires a high-tech professional assassin team of two sisters to kill his elder brother. Fearing exposure by an undercover policewoman who has been shadowing the sisters, the businessman has the older sister killed and implicates the policewoman. The grieving younger sister and the framed policewoman must now form an alliance to bring down the businessman. Great high-kicking action in the tradition of Charlie's Angels and The Matrix.

5 out of 5 stars Very Good Movie   March 30, 2006
  1 out of 1 found this review helpful

This movie is really good. Besides the three actresses, it is certainly not one of those "cliche" like action movies. This film invokes a feeling that is quite different than most films I have seen similar to this kind of nature. The martial arts choreography is very good but with an additional sort of intuitive intelligence. The three main characters are very intuitive as if they operate on a much more complex level than so appears on the surface. And yes, the women are wonderful.

4 out of 5 stars Took the film to a friend's house.....   January 14, 2006

I had planned to show him just a few minutes of the
DVD, as he had never seen an asian/subtitled movie
before. After a few minutes, he begged me to continue
the film, and repeatedly remarked what a great movie it
was. I hadn't seen it in months, and was again reminded
how much fun it was. The plot will not win awards, but
it was a super movie to spend a couple of hrs on, and it
was great to see my friend's astonished enjoyment of (for him)
this new genre

5 out of 5 stars So Close is everything Charlie's Angels wished it could be!   August 26, 2005

That pretty much says it all. True, an important character dies during the film, but this is a very daring move on the part of the director. I do not care for main characters getting killed, but once in a while it's okay. It gives my "film reality" a jolt, something it needs. As a female assassin, Shu Qi ranks at the top rank of cinematic killers. I have no doubt that she could kill Arnold, Clint Eastwood or Mel Gibson in any film roles. She is also so easy on the eyes that her anti-social job is acceptable. The action is top notch, as is the cinematography. Hong Kong Cinema is far ahead of any other and it shows here. Rating: 8 out of 10.

5 out of 5 stars THIS IS THE ULTIMATE ACTION-CHICK FLICK!   July 16, 2005
  2 out of 3 found this review helpful

Starring the hottest actresses in Asia, Shu Qi, Zhao Wei & Karen Mok have definitely proven themselves not just by their beauty but also by their AMAZING acting talents.

I was totally blown away by the fight scenes which is totally amazing. The plot of the movie wasn't your typical asian-cultured story with daggers & kimonos... this is modern action. Plus, the movie wasn't all about fighting. It contains a little comedy, thriller and romance. PLUS the drama. Of course

WELL, this is recommended for ya'll. CHARLIE's ANGELS, meet your ULTIMATE enemies.

This movie is so good on so many levels. It has action, drama, a great script and fairly decent acting. It doesn't hurt that three females in the movie are hotties. I recommend buying this DVD as you will want to see it again and again. Hollywood: look here for a good movie.
