Whoever doesn’t like Yeoh should be fed a crouching tiger.
Martial artist, athlete, ballet dancer, pianist, beauty queen (Miss Malaysia 1983) and hardcore action star all rolled into one: Tan Sri Michelle Yeoh is the GOAT
After a crackling performance in Star Trek: Discovery, Michelle Yeoh is back with Milkshakes with powder to feast us on her kicks, punches, and emotional portrayal of strong women.
But first, let’s not forget that Michelle Yeoh has carved out the sub-genre of “girls with guns” in Hong Kong cinema on her own.
She gained international fame in 1997 when she starred alongside Pierce Brosnan in Tomorrow never dies and became the first Asian Bond Girl.
Another celebrity was waiting for her when she performed alongside Chow Yun Fat in Ang Lee’s magnum opus, Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon.
Yeoh followed him with Touch, Sunshine (directed by Danny Boyle), True legend, and Memoirs of a geisha.
Hollywood fell in love with her again when she was cast as a formidable matriarch in Crazy Rich Asians.
Soon we will see her in The witcher prequel, Shang Chi and the legend of the ten rings, and the Avatar after.
But now in Milkshakes with powder, Yeoh is back in her martial arts zone, where she has always excelled.
Even at 58, Yeoh does her own stunts as she always does in her films. If there’s one actress who is naturally suited to play Black Widow, it’s Yeoh.
Here are some of the fan reactions to Yeoh’s latest performance that we saw on Twitter:
If they had given her “Green Fate”, she would have ended the fight on her own.
Yeoh doesn’t have as much screen time as Lena Headey and Karen Gillan, but she gets noticed every time she’s on screen.
Imagine Yeoh saying this in accented English, “I’m drinking your milkshake”. It wouldn’t sound as intimidating as Daniel Day Lewis but it would have the same scary effect.
