Widow Warriors (1990)

Widow Warriors

Baby....I can't breathe!

Damn you! Bad Egg!

Poster for the kick butt chickie action flick WIDOW WARRIORS. Such a cool title! One of the most well known Shaw Bros. bad asses, Johnny Wang Lung-wei, directs this 1990, salad days girls-with-guns drama acioner starring some top notch ladies; Tien Niu, Elizabeth Lee Mei-fung, Kara Hui Ying-hung, Winnie Lau Siu-wai, and Michiko Nishiwaki. In a novel twist, after the men of a prolific triad family are ambushed and dispatched by their rivals, the females of the family decide it's time for the sisters of the family to unite! And unite they do to seek retribution and exact vengeance. I have a VHS copy of the film and, in my opinion, it is the best way to watch a movie from this era. Nice poster image too!
