    Next to the Hong Kong action picture So Close, nearly every Hollywood thriller of the summer looks like an elementary-school project thrown together the Sunday night before it was due.

    A delirious example of grrrl power, Hong Kong style.
  3. 80
    The protracted final sequence, which involves balletic swordplay worthy of the famous scene in "Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon," will take your breath away.
  4. Cory Yuen's So Close is a kind of Hong Kong martial-arts variation on the Charlie's Angels movies, only better.

    So Close is a beautiful mess. I didn't really understand what was going on, but I loved every stylized minute of it.
  6. 60
    Sleek, stylish and crammed with girl-power action.
  7. 30
    With the exception of some of the battles, which have the angry desperation of Mr. Yuen's inspired martial-arts choreography, Close is a nominal effort.

    The comments of several "10" reviewers are as ridiculous and phony as the film itself, and that is no small feat. Might as well have been titled Soh Soh Dum, or Wha Ta Dud. Expand
