The Dark Angels, led by their female boss only known as Chief, has
its hands in pretty much every crime there is, be it diamond smuggling or
production & sale of drugs, & government agents sent after them are
gunned down with great regularity ...
But then the government sends Luo Na
(Lily Ho), agent 009 after the gang, disguised as the immensely rich girlfriend
of the incarcerated gangster Baldie, & her first lead is a jeweller, Cheng
Tiehu (Tang Ching), who seems to be not quite as honourable as he pretends to
be, & whose affections Luo Na soon wins ... not at least thanks to the
expensive jewellery she's always wearing.
But Cheng's girlfriend Dolly - also
one of the Dark Angels - is not quite as happy about seductive Luo Na,
& soon the 2 get into a fierce fight ... but Luo Na remains victorious.
naturally catches the attention of Chief, who decides she needs a woman like
Luo Na in her gang. ... but to persuade her joining them she only knows one way
... robbing her blind.
Soon Luo Na realizes she has no money, no jewels, no
nothing, & she gladly accepts the offer of joining the Dark Angels (as if
that wasn't her plan in the first place).
Soon she performs her first jobs
admirably, this being an assassination (actually she has to kill one of her
colleagues with the police whom she persuades to play dead) or a fashion show
(to divert attention from a crime the Dark Angels are committing) ... but when
she's almost raped by an accomplice, she notices she's not yet in the clear ...
& of all the Dark Angels, only Cheng Tiehu, who questions the methods of
his gang more & more, shows real sympathy, & even promises to help her
But Luo Na rises in the ranks, & soon sees the opportuinity
of becoming second in command within her grasp ... wouldn't Baldie ahve broken
out of jail, come to the Dark Angels' secret hideout & informed everyone on
Luo Na's real identity ... bugger.
But by now, Luo Na has already set a few
timebombs to blow the whole place to kingdom come, & after a long fight
against various of the Black Angels' guards, she can escape the hideout too,
before it blows up, helped only by Cheg Tiehu (by now reformed, but naturally
he has to die a heroes' death).
Chief & her closest associates can get
away on a yacht though, but are ignorant to the fact that Luo Na has placed one
of her timebombs right there too ... boom !
crime-&-espionage movie very obviously inspired by the then popular James
Bond-series & its predilection for fancy but useless gadgets,
exotic & decadent locations & a bit of eroticism thrown into the mix. A
tad overlong but still some fun to watch ... but most likely forgotten the very
