Outlaw Brothers


Even if crime never pays, it certainly plays fast and furious in this action comedy about two car thieves caught between the lawless and the law. Action-director Frankie Chan ("Prodigal Son") delivers a fun and funky fable of fast cars, femmes fatales, and kung furious action.
A ruthless Hong Kong gang boss gives James (Frankie Chan) and his partner (Max Mok Siu Chung, "Magic Crystal") twenty-four hours to steal a consignment of Porsches, or else... Hot on their trail are both high-kicking lady cop Tequila (Yukari Oshima, "Millionaire's Express") and Japanese crime queen Miego (Michiko Nishiwaki). These two Nipponese firecrackers and a wild bunch of western henchmen give our heroes their most dangerous ride ever.
"Outlaw Brothers" provides a perfect blend of comic character play, cutting edge street racing, and high impact martial arts action. Action queen Yukari Oshima establishes herself as one of Hong Kong's all-time great female furies.
