The Stunt Woman is a 1996 action-thriller film starring Michelle Yeoh, Sammo Kam-Bo Hung, and Ken Lo. Directed by Stanley Tong, the film centers on a Taiwanese stuntwoman named Anne (Michelle Yeoh) who is hired by a film studio to work on a big-budget action movie. However, when she discovers that the production is connected to an underground crime syndicate, Anne must use her stunt skills to fight back against the criminals.

The movie opens with Anne rehearsing stunts for a movie in Taiwan. She is shown performing impressive moves, hanging from a helicopter and fighting off attackers. After the shoot, Anne is approached by a man named Jim (Sammo Kam-Bo Hung). Jim works for a Hong Kong movie studio and asks Anne to come to his studio to work on a big-budget action movie that the studio is producing. Anne is hesitant at first, but eventually agrees to come to Hong Kong.

When Anne arrives in Hong Kong, she is introduced to the film's star, Eddie (Ken Lo), and his girlfriend, Lily (Juju Chan). Anne is immediately drawn to Eddie, but is also skeptical of him. Meanwhile, she begins to suspect that something is not quite right with the movie production. Her suspicions are confirmed when she overhears a conversation between Jim and a group of criminals. Anne learns that the production is actually a front for a crime syndicate, which is using the movie as a cover to smuggle drugs.

Determined to put an end to the syndicate's operations, Anne decides to take matters into her own hands. She uses her skills as a stuntwoman to infiltrate the syndicate, disguising herself as a member of the film crew. Anne is able to gain the trust of the criminals and begins gathering information about their operations. However, when the syndicate discovers Anne's true intentions, they turn on her and Eddie. The two of them must fight for their lives in a thrilling action-packed climax.

The Stunt Woman is a fast-paced action movie that showcases Michelle Yeoh's impressive martial arts skills. Yeoh, who is known for her starring roles in films such as Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon and Tomorrow Never Dies, delivers a strong performance as Anne. She is a tough, independent character who is not afraid to take risks. The movie also benefits from the presence of Sammo Kam-Bo Hung and Ken Lo, both of whom are skilled martial artists in their own right.

Director Stanley Tong, who worked with Yeoh on the popular 1993 movie Supercop, delivers a well-paced film that will keep viewers on the edge of their seats. The movie features several impressive action set pieces, including a thrilling car chase and a heart-pumping fight scene on a moving train. The film also benefits from its Hong Kong setting, which provides a fascinating backdrop for the story.

Overall, The Stunt Woman is an entertaining action movie that showcases the talents of its cast and crew. If you're a fan of Michelle Yeoh or Hong Kong action cinema, this movie is definitely worth checking out.
