Hong Kong's answer to Hollywood's hoary Police Academy series, this film -- directed by Wellson Chin -- concerns the local police force's attempts at creating a crack all-female special unit force. Under the strict and watchful eye of Madam Hu (Sibelle Hu) and Madam Lo (Cynthia Rothrock), prospective candidates suffer through grueling training regimes and brutal physical conditioning. Meanwhile, the women has piqued the interest in their male counterparts, Tiger Squad, who train in an adjacent camp. Soon, the women are spending almost as much time getting romanced by the men as they are doing deep-knee bends. When the two squads are assigned to guard a fashion show where valuable jewelry is to be displayed. When the show is crashed by some kung-fu wielding thieves, the squad shows off what it learned. This film was a huge hit in Hong Kong, launch at least three sequels.
