One of Angela Mao’s Kung Fu Classic Films
” Broken Oath ” is one of Angela Mao ‘s most popular movies. Made by Korean director Jeong Chang-Hwa with added choreography by Yuen Woo-Ping, who choreographed The Matrix series, this Golden Harvest classic holds its own with Angela as the star.
The story begins with the tale of a woman whose husband has been killed by an evil clan and she is thrown in jail for life for attempted murder because she fought off one of these evil clan members when being raped.
This woman dies after giving birth to Lotus Lin, Angela Mao’s character, and before she dies she gives Lotus to another inmate who becomes Lotus’ God-mother and makes the God-Mother swear that Lotus will be told everything that happened and that she is to be bred to take revenge in the name of her parents.
The God-mother decides to give Lotus a better chance at life than the one her mother wanted for her and leaves Lotus at a Shaolin Monastery to teach her about love and kindness.
Unfortunately, Lotus grows up with an instinctively revengeful heart and can’t understand where it comes from. She is eventually released from the monastery because of her aggressive, restless and angry spirit.
Lotus returns to her God-mother to find out the truth of who she is and once told the cause of her pain, all hell breaks out because the China Doll is on the loose.
” Broken Oath ” is a movie with a lot of good action along with great stars in this film. You have Sammo Hung as a villain henchman along with Wai-Man Chan as the lead villain and Bruce Leung, who is also known for playing The Beast in “Kung Fu Hustle“ Angela Mao kicks a lot of butt in this film and what I like the most is she uses Scorpions as weapons (My sign is Scorpio).
It was cool to watch this Golden Harvest classic. I’m looking forward to watching more films with Angela Mao in them. She demonstrates a lot of power in her punches and kicks. She is easily one of my top 5 favorite female fighters in the game.
“Broken Oath” is a movie I strongly consider any fan of Kung Fu movies to see. It showcases plenty of stars and most of all it gives you the China Doll herself.
