Default The Women of HK Action Cinema

Just an idea for a thread I had...

Here's some clips to get things started...

My fave two Eastern fighting females are probably Shaw Bros. starlet Hui Ying Hung and Michelle Yeoh. Both were easy on the eye and great at kicking bad guy butt back in their respective heydays imo. Yeung Lai Ching ('Cynthia Khan'), Yukari Oshima, Joyce Godenzi and Moon Lee were pretty good too but i must admit Angela Mao never really did it for me. Sacrilege i know but there you go!

Yeoh in particular is wonderful to watch in the first two In The Line Of Duty installments and Magnificent Warriors.

There's also quite a few other HK cinema females i like but purely for their lovely looks rather than (if any) onscreen combat skills.

Having some problems with my computer, so could some kind soul put up the end fight from Iron Angels with Ms Lee and the Osh, available on you tube. Now thats a brutal fight.

Joey Wong is especially achingly beautiful and she's stunning to look at in A Chinese Ghost Story and City Hunter imo. I also had quite a crush on Brigitte Lin back in the '80s after seeing her in Police Story.

You can add Christy Chung, Cherie Cheung, Sylvia Chang, Valerie Chow, Dodo Cheng, Nina Li Chi, Sibelle Hu, Sandra Ng, Emily Chu and Sally Yeh to the list too. Easy on the eye all of 'em in one way or another!

Lucy Liu and Kelly Hu are also gorgeous but of course they're not known for HK action cinema.

Jackie Chan's two female friends in Dragons Forever are rather attractive too and one of 'em is quite capable of kicking butt as bad guy Phillip Ko Fei finds out in one amusing scene.

I almost forgot about feisty Franchoise Yip and Rosamund Kwan too. The late Anita Mui wasn't too bad either although along with Maria Yi Yi and Nora Miao there's other Eastern beauties i prefer over these three. Switching sides for a moment there's no denying the delectability of former Miss Spain the luscious Lola Forner from The Armour Of God and Wheels On Meals. Spaghetti sexpot Malisa Longo was rather radiant in The Way Of The Dragon too imo. A couple of Caucasian crackers make no mistake.
