THE GODFATHER'S DAUGHTER: MAFIA BLUES (1991)
What you get here is a Hong Kong version of a mobster flick complete with kung fu scenes, crazy car chases, Jackie Chan-like acrobatics and lots of John Woo-esque gun-play. Yukari Oshima is our titular character and she's pretty awesome here with one particularly acrobatic fight scene involving some gym equipment. My favorite sequence here though involves a guy who's fighting with a samurai sword, gets it stuck in some wood then gets swung around and decapitated by his own sword. That's some well-choreographed mayhem! Not the best or worst Hong Kong action flick of the 90's but it's an OK time-killer.
