Sundays on Fire started 9 movies ago in February, and now it ends with month and movie number 10 on Sunday, November 13. The series began with Michelle Yeoh starring in her second movie, and now we come full circle and end with one of the most brutal Girls with Guns pictures ever made. Shot in the ‘80s, this truly apocalyptic blast of action struts down a runway named Death, wearing big shoulder pads made of corpses, its hair full of mousse, holding a smoking hogleg pistol in each lace-gloved hand.

Hong Kong’s Girls with Guns movies were always shot fast, cheap, and barely under control, their stunts teetering on the verge of doing permanent damage to the actors, plots constantly threatening to spin off into insanity, their bloody hearts pinned to their sleeves, their leads actors turning on the afterburners to deliver level 11 intensity despite the sheer exhaustion etched into their faces by the grinding shooting schedule and the grueling stunts they had to perform.

In this movie, two hardcore action actresses go toe-to-toe in a high caliber deathmatch that features some of the most brutal beatdowns every put on the big screen, choreography courtesy of one of Hong Kong’s most famous action dynasties. The core of this movie is a pentagram of three Hong Kong bruisers, one Japanese power lifter, and one Japanese superhero going at each others’ throats, and God help any supporting character, pane of glass, fashion show, innocent bystander, or city that gets in their way. If you think girls can’t fight, allow this movie to punch you in the throat. Hard.

This is how Sundays on Fire is going out — with blood on its knuckles and glass in its hair.

Tickets are on sale now and can be purchased here.
