Impossible Woman (1983)

I just found this credit sequence + intro scene from the Taiwan movie IMPOSSIBLE WOMAN (aka The Ninja Avenger / Ninja Apocalypse) from 1983. Check it out, it's pretty awesome. If the rest of the flick is just as good I'm definitely sold!!

It stars Elsa Yeung who's been in tons of movies, not least GOLDEN QUEENS COMMANDO and its sequel PINK FORCE COMMANDO (and Bruce, Kung Fu Girls which I just saw).
More credit info here.

UPDATE, Feb. 26th:

Ahh, what I didn't tell you in the above is that I initially checked out IMPOSSIBLE WOMAN on YouTube because Bill Barounis had the Greek VHS up for auction on eBay but obviously I didn't wanna turn everybody's attention to the auction since I SO did not want any competition, haha. And yesterday (almost without any competition) I did indeed win the tape, so woo-hoo!!! I haven't been able to find any info on other Mandarin language, English subtitled versions (and yes; it has Greek subs as well) so that makes it even more exciting. There is (I think) a UK vhs but it's dubbed into English.

[PS: The back of the Greek cover lists the English title as Impossible Women (plural) but it's a mistake and SHOULD be Impossible Woman]


  1. I rented this tape in Greece in 85-86.
    Been looking for it for years, but I cant' find it anywhere. Could you upload a VHS rip of your tape (with greek subtitles and everything) ? I would be grateful! :-)

  2. Upload how? Where? I have never uploaded anything anywhere and I'm not on any torrent sites so I'm afraid I can't do that (but had I been able to then yes the Greek subs would be included).

    Are you in Greece?

  3. Yes I'm from Greece. I could email you with uploading instructions if you want.
    By the way, the title written in Greek is "The hawk strikes"! :-)

  4. Hey! Thanks for your offer but I'd rather not. However, I may still be able to help out with a copy. Shoot me an email if you're interested. My address is on the profile page (click my avatar).
