Agnes Aurelio is hot
5 April 2009 | by gridoon2019See all my reviews

Agnes Aurelio is hot. She has a beautiful face and a killer body. Joyce Godenzi is pretty hot as well. Her best feature may be her large, expressive eyes. Both are terrific fighters, but what adds an extra dimension to their fight scenes in "License To Steal" is the psychological game that seems to be going on between their characters (who are sisters and professional thieves working together, until Aurelio betrays her partner and lets her get arrested): both are confident that they are the superior fighter, however the results so far have proved only Godenzi right. With this in mind, Godenzi keeps teasing Aurelio with her words and expressions, while Aurelio grows more and more frustrated that her obvious advantage in sheer power is not enough to make her overcome her rival. The comedy parts of the movie are sometimes amusing, but the action scenes are what make it worth watching. Yuen Biao is rather awkwardly inserted into the film, but you can forgive that when he gets to fight the hard-hitting Billy Chow. **1/2 out of 4.
