Yukari Oshima and Sharon Yeung are among the very best actresses of martial arts cinema of the 80s and 90s. The Hong Kong Cinema which had perfectly been able to renew the genre and give pride of place to Women. There are many films, like this one, where heroines coexist. There may even be villains watching the movies with Cynthia Khan or Joyce Godenzi). The beautiful Japanese Yukari Oshima has also played very good roles as "villains" in other films. This period, the 80's and 90's was in "Gold" for what we are looking for the most. Here, the complicity of the two fabulous actresses is obvious. They don't compete (as happened with Michelle Khan and Cynthia Rothrock starring in the same film), they actually associate themselves. And the duo is superb

Yukari Oshima, Sharon Yeung and Moon Lee were my absolute favorites from that era. IMO, even Cynthia Rothrock not as good as them, and Michelle Yeoh was a bit overrated.

The most memorable Yukari's villanes was Yang-lin from "Iron Angels". She absolutely stole the film, even being brutally defeated by Moon Lee (can't remember a single Yukari's win aganist her)

@xteyg: @xteyg: Love also very much : Helen Lui, Joyce Godenzi, Carol Wai (Kara Wai). And your favorites in the previous decade ? "Just Before" (for me) its Hsia Kwan Lee (See the Excellent "Woman Avenger" (1980))

@michelbobby: Don't forget actresses like Kim Maree Penn or the excellent Sophia Crawford who Hong Kong cinema of the 80s and 90s mostly used as "Villains". It was the "Ugly Western Blondes" who were defeated by the "nice" Asian brunettes!

@michelbobby: "Ugly Western Blonde" Sophia Crawford was one of the most beautiful action actress of the golden HK era. It's a shame there aren't many scenes with her. In most of her films, she was killed off in just a few minutes. Even Yukari Oshima and Michiko Nishiwaki, also "chronically killed villanes", had better luck.
