Black Panther Warriors
The Black Panther Warriors filmed in 1993 again re-teamed Brigitte Lin and Alan Tang. It was the last movie that (that I know of) Alan Tang has made. It was produced by his In-Gear Movie company and was basically a fantasy with interesting special effects. I believe it was ahead of its time in this regard and would be better received today.The Cast:
Leung Ka Fai Tony
Chan Ming Chan
Chang Gan Cheong
Alan Tang, the Black Panther, is hired by Melvin Wong's character to steal a box from a police station. Tang assembles a gang of specialists to do this. Included in the group are Simon Yam as a fantastic card shark,Tony Leung as a gun master, Brigitte Lin as a kung fu expert, and Carrie Ng as a beautiful thief.
It turns out that Cheung was actually hired by a character known as Bloody Wolf who wants to kill Tang, win Brigitte Lin and acquire Tang's dragon head sword. This sword, once owned by the revered kung fu Master of Tang, Lin and Wolf, seems to possess magical power.
The film has some great action scenes and an interesting plot. The fantasy scenes where Black Panther Tang wields the dragon head sword are great. Lin and Tang are past lovers who still carry a torch for each other. The big downer to this movie is a pacifier-sucking computer geek that helps the team break into the police station. The geek has way too much screen time, which could have been better used exploring the relationship between Lin and Black Panther. Tony Leung's gun expert character gets a bit silly too. As a fan of Alan Tang, I would have liked his Black Panther to have had more to do in this movie.
If you can ignore the pacifier geek, you will probably enjoy this film. If you like special effects, drop dead looks from Brigitte Lin, Simon Yam making out with Carrie Ng, and big complicated fight scenes, for sure you will like The BLACK PANTHER WARRIORS.
