Uninspired cash-in on the "Inspector Wear Skirts" franchise

"Emergency Police Lady" should really be in plural.

This movie came out just a year after the first "Inspector Wear Skirts" film was released. Storywise they share the same template. A bunch of policewomen and cadets are enlisted into an newly-created, all- female law enforcement unit. They go through training together, coached by an harsh female superior, and as the movie enters it's third act - the unit undergoes its first deadly mission. To drive this comparison home even further, the female superior training the girls is even played by the same actress in both films, Sibelle Hu!

Unfortunately, Emergency Police Lady doesn't offer much above that. You have the usual clash of characters, the hardass, the foreigner, the kinda normal girl with a love interest, and the one who almost ruins the whole film, the clownish lass who never shuts up and wears humongous glasses.

Other than that the film proceeds just as one would imagine. But the various subplots, antagonists, and missions the narrative presents just arn't that skillfully executed. Unlike the fun-loving and excitable "Inspector Wear Skirts", this movie never really manages to make the genre-tropes that it plays with very involving to watch.

The various action scenes are serviceable though. Guns spray bullets at an excessive amount and police work involve an unusual high amount of martial arts. It elevates the film a little, but I am going to have to set my rating no higher than a strong 4.
