Plot

She Shoots Straight turns on three satisfying plot axes. The first concerns the complications of a workplace romance and marriage between a dedicated policewoman “Mina Kao” (Joyce Godenzi) and her supervisor “Huang Tsung-pao” (Tony Leung). The second theme concerns opposition by the Huang family to the couple’s impending union. Another policewoman, Mina’s future sister-in-law “Chia-ling” (Carina Lau) is especially critical of apparent favoritism, and even makes a remark about her being Eurasian (this is not unique – a comparable epithet being made by Oshima’s character to her male opponent in “Close Escape”). The third axis provides resolution as a gang of Vietnamese led by Yuan Hua (Yuen Wah) attempts a violent and risky robbery. After the gang is thwarted, a shootout ensues in which the police get the upper hand. Swearing revenge, Yuan Hua lays a counter-trap using Vietnamese jungle warfare devices. When Chia-ling – slighted over disciplinary action – impulsively investigates alone, she risks trouble. Mina and Tsung-po rescue her, but he is killed by a booby trap, dying in front of his sister and bride. United in their grief, the women must break the news to the Huang family at a celebration for their matriarch. This paves the way for a relatively straightforward vengeance sub-plot in which Mina and Chia-ling track the gang to a freighter in the harbor. In advance of reinforcements they board the vessel to fight a life or death duel against gang members and crew wielding pistols, hatchets, knives or tools.
