Synopsis by Jonathan Crow
Michelle Yeoh makes her starring role debut in this police drama\action spectacular, directed by Corey Yuen. The film opens with the fierce, relentless Inspector Ng (Yeoh) cleaning the clocks of a band of thieves. Meanwhile, vicious crime boss Tin (James Tien Chun) puts a hit out on his accountant after he tried to sell his boss out to the police. The accountant is killed but the incriminating piece of microfilm is swiped by two-bit thugs Aspirin (Mang Hoi) and Strepsil (John Sham Kin-fun). Ng gets wind of the murder when the dead man's passport shows up on a fleeing criminal. She tracks the document to forger Panadol (played by director Tsui Hark). Later, Chinese-speaking Scotland Yard detective Carrie Morris (Cynthia Rothrock, in her film debut) shows up and soon the two are tracking down Tin. This film spawned a series of sequels including A Serious Shock! Yes Madam!
