Silver Hawk

Michelle Yeoh's second outing as producer-cum-action star sees her casting off the Indiana Jane character of "The Touch" (2002) for a futuristic crimefighter in the equally disappointing "Silver Hawk." Lensed entirely in sterile whites, grays and gunmetal blues, yarn about a cartoony, double-life figure who takes on a nasty Westerner who's after a scientific gizmo looks to fly highest on ancillary.

Michelle Yeoh’s second outing as producer-cum-action star sees her casting off the Indiana Jane character of “The Touch” (2002) for a futuristic crimefighter in the equally disappointing “Silver Hawk.” Lensed entirely in sterile whites, grays and gunmetal blues, yarn about a cartoony, double-life figure who takes on a nasty Westerner who’s after a scientific gizmo looks to fly highest on ancillary. Pic scraped a mere HK$3.4 million ($435,000) during Chinese New Year in Hong Kong.

Introduced biking along the Great Wall after panda thieves, Lulu Wong (Yeoh), aka Silver Hawk in goggles and action duds, takes on Alexander Wolfe (former pop duo Bros star Luke Goss) when he kidnaps first a Chinese scientist (Mainland director Chen Daming, “Manhole”), who’s developed a scary AI device, and then the daughter (Misato Tachibana) of a Japanese industrialist friend (Koichi Iwaki). Action choreography is just OK, and rather repetitive, with a bungee-like fight in a large arena the standout. Attempts at humor, mainly featuring a doofus cop (Richie Ren), fall flat, and, as in “The Touch,” 41-year-old Yeoh is as cold and steely as the movie’s color scheme.
