    Seeing this upon its release was a strange experience. Half great, half head-scratchingly awkward. It was a little better a few years later on VHS, and now 36 years later, even a little more so.

Thanks also to director Joe Dante for his participation in this release and being a large part of why it's so special.

    5 stars for the Blu-ray.

    (Kicking his hand before he finishes asking) "I AM ready."- Inspector Carrie Morris (Cynthia Rothrock)


    Michelle Yeoh (still being billed as Michelle Khan at that time) arrived on the Hong Kong movie scene playing bit parts and is wonderful here in her first starring role as Inspector Ng of the Hong Kong Royal Police Force. She's teamed up with Inspector Carrie Morris (Cynthia Rothrock)…
