Action SHEROS: Shu Qi, Vicki Zhao, and Karen Mok
Ai Lin, portrayed by the provocative taiwanese actress Shu Qi, is a cold blooded, top skilled assassin. Together with her little sister, Ai Quan (Vicki Zhao Wei), who is a highly intelligent computer expert and hacker, they work as paid assassins. Hung (Karen Mok) is an intelligent and beautiful police officer who is after the two Ai sisters. In the movie there are many girl fights and stunts. The movie, directed by Corey Yuen did really well at the box office. Frantic car chases, well directed fight scenes and lots of blood shed.
All three ladies were very beautiful in the movie; the actresses’ outfits were sexy and fashionable. Ai Lin was presented as a very strong, independent woman. Shu Qi did a fairly good job presenting a strong woman who has to deal with her own emotional issues. Karen Mok displayed a more cool personality and a more tomboyish attitude. Vicki Zhao’s character was more immature and innocent, who was passionate for more action.
So Close contained the typical cliches of a female action heroine dominated movie, such as sexy, powerful and invicible female characters. Shu Qiand Vicki’s characters happened to be assassins, but deep down in their hearts they are good people who are stigmatised by traumatic experiences. The movie also had the cliche character of a super intelligent and highly skilled “good gal” who is bravely fighting for justice, portrayed by Karen Mok. How did that movie impress you?
