One of the first true “girls with guns” action films starring Michelle Yeoh and Cynthia Rothrock
Eureka Entertainment is to release YES, MADAM!, one of the most important and influential action films of its era, starring Michelle Yeoh and Cynthia Rothrock. On Blu-ray for the first time ever in the UK as a part of Eureka Classics range, presented from a brand new 2K restoration. Available from 12 December 2022, the first print-run of 2000 copies will feature a Limited-Edition O-card Slipcase (featuring new artwork TBC) and Collector’s Booklet.
Originally released as “Police Assassins” in the UK, Yes, Madam! was the first starring role for both Michelle Yeoh and Cynthia Rothrock, who stunned audiences with their incredible athleticism and stunt work. Produced by Sammo Hung and John Sham, the film is as expected, an incredible action showcase in the inimitable Hong Kong style of the time.
Michelle Yeoh and Cynthia Rothrock star as a couple of tough-as-nails police inspectors investigating the murder of a British agent, which leads them to a pair of unlucky thieves who need protection from a ruthless crime boss.
Launching both a successful franchise (the In the Line of Duty series) as well as an entire sub-genre of action cinema (“girls-with-guns” – a genre which did not truly exist before this film), Yes, Madam! is one of the most important and influential action films of its era, and Eureka Classics is proud to present the film in its UK debut on Blu-ray from a brand new 2K restoration.
