Does anyone else notice any similarity between Chingmy Yau's outfit in City Hunter and the one sported by Lara Croft in "Tomb Raider" -- which came out a few years later? Ms. Croft also does a lot of dual-handgun blasting in her games, which of course is a mainstay of Hong Kong action movies.
In the first live-action movie of the game, Angelina Jolie's main outfit looks a bit more like Chingmy's than Lara's.
And, in the second film, part of it takes place in Hong Kong and features a few HK natives such as Simon Yam.
In 2002, a Hong Kong film called Undiscovered Tomb -- which took a lot of it's "inspiration" from the games and their movie adaptations -- was released without much fanfare.
2005's Dragon Reloaded features a male thief called the "Tomb Razor".
