SiskoidMichelle Yeoh had a screen credit before (a non-action part in Sammo Hung's The Owl vs. Bombo), so Yes, Madam! - which could be called Female Police Story and came out the same year as Jackie Chan's more famous flick - is just as much her introduction as it is newcomer Cynthia Rothrock's. Perhaps neither was thought of as money in the back because for their fans, years on, it's frustrating how often we lose sight of the cop side of things in favor of three clowns (one of them a madcap Tsui Hark!) who get themselves in trouble by accidentally acquiring the MacGuffin (just don't ask me to explain its importance). They get some slapstick action beats too, but given how broad the comedy is, you neither see nor accept the downer ending that's to come. As for the two madams, their relationship, whether contentious or friendly, is pretty much always unmotivated, so you quickly realize you're not watching this for the noisy plot. What our two stars-in-becoming deliver is the action. And when they let loose, it's exciting, impactful, and looks like it hurts. A lot. Director Corey Yuen gets right in there and brings real immediacy to the action, if not logic to the script. 11 months 3 weeks ago
