Black Cat (HK 1991)

Rating: **
Director: Stephen Shin
Cast: Jade Leung, Simon Yam

Another retread of "La Femme Nikita" (1990) featuring Jade Leung as the femme fatale and Simon Yam as her mentor. A rather butch Jade Leung gives a fine performance, but her character isn't sensual enough to keep me interested. (actually, I liked Bridget Fonda's portrayal in "Point Of No Return" (1993) more) Average action fare, but kind of disappointing. Additionally, the subtitles are sporadic, going from fair to none. In fact, the first 22 minutes aren't translated at all.
