Cynthia Rothrock stars as a butt-kicking FBI agent in one of the best action films of the Eighties
Eureka Entertainment to release LADY REPORTER, starring Cynthia Rothrock as a butt-kicking FBI agent. Presented as part of the Eureka Classics range in its UK debut on Blu-ray from a brand new 2K restoration. Available from 26 June 2023, the first print-run of 2000 copies will feature a Limited-Edition O-card Slipcase, Collector’s Booklet and Facsimile Lobby Cards.
Cynthia Rothrock’s first leading role was also the first (and to this day, only) time a Western actress had lead billing in a Hong Kong film.
Rothrock plays Cindy, the titular female reporter sent to investigate an unscrupulous newspaper editor (Ronny Yu). Teaming up with Elizabeth Lee (Long Arm of the Law Part 3), the two go up against a series of opponents played by some of the greatest “bad guy” actors in 80s cinema, including Billy Chow (Fist of Legend), Jeff Falcon (Outlaw Brothers, Six String Samurai), and Vincent Lyn (Tiger Cage).
Mang Hoi handles directing duties here, but much like Yes, Madam!, this was a collaborative effort between Mang Hoi and Corey Yuen, and just like that film the results are magnificent – Mang Hoi’s graceful and acrobatic choreography fusing perfectly with Corey Yuen’s hard-hitting style. But the star here is Cynthia Rothrock, and this deservedly secured her position as one of the top action stars of her era, and Eureka Classics is proud to present Lady Reporter in its UK debut on Blu-ray from a brand new 2K restoration.
