Yes, Madam -- **1/2 (out of 5)   (1985)

Cast: Michelle Yeoh, Cynthia Rothrock, Tsui Hark, Richard Ng, Sammo Hung

Directed By Corey Yuen

YES, MADAM is about two female cops, one from Hong Kong and the other Scotland Yard, who team up to uncover an underground plot involving some missing microfilm.

Perhaps the only reason one might watch this otherwise routine crime action flick is for two well-delivered fight sequences involving Yeoh and Rothrock. Admittedly, they are breathtakingly staged and probably worth sitting through the rest of this noisy and pedestrian dreck to get to, but expect long periods of boredom and boneheaded plotting in between. YES, MADAM is loud, with almost no piece of glass left unbroken, and with everyone shouting their ridiculously uninspired lines at the top of their lungs for no apparent reason. The aforementioned fight scenes put this flick a notch above most Van Damme and Seagal ventures, but not by much.
