  1. A martial arts valentine to the power of fighting women. It's a slick and delirious Hong Kong action film.

    The protracted final sequence, which involves balletic swordplay worthy of the famous scene in "Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon," will take your breath away.

    A delirious example of grrrl power, Hong Kong style.
  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.

    The surprising lack of humor in So Close, and long, trying stretches between combat sequences aren't likely to attract new converts to the genre.
  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.
