Consensus: This HK actioner oozes with style.

Steven Rea
Philadelphia Inquirer

If stiletto-heeled heroines outfoxing legions of dunderheaded males are what you're looking for, seek no more.

Edward Guthmann
San Francisco Chronicle

Has moments of style and audacity, but the script is a shameless muddle and the shifts in tone -- from gooey romance to hard-driving, hyper-pop action -- give the impression that the movie was directed by six or seven people in alternating shift.

Contains some clever set-pieces, mostly involving a Cyrano-type communication between the sisters.

Charlie's Angels only wish -- in some corner of their empty, overstimulated minds -- that they were as cool as the chicks in So Close.

Jami Bernard

A brilliant example of the genre.

This action adventure is a cross between the Charlie's Angels' films from America and the Raider (Tokyo and Seoul) films from China. Put these two… More

Dean McKenna
Fantastic high-octane thriller and very sexy on two sisters (Shu Qi and Zhao Wei) as professional assassins with amazing high-tech and kung-fu skills.
Sylvester Kuo
A fine techno thriller from Hong Kong. An all female lead cast about assassins and cops in the struggle of identity crisis. The action sequences were great, it… More
