Slightly above average
28 January 2005 | by (Germany) – See all my reviews

Liang Kuan [ Alexander Fu Sheng ] is killed during a robbery; his girlfriend Shen Yan [ Lily Li ] and best buddy Huang Gao-tung [ Wang Chung ] are seeking for revenge. 5 yrs later Huang is a promoted cop, he fought hundreds of criminals, but the very special guy isn't found yet. Till now....

Very solid, but too experienced [ or even - tempered ] 70ies action crime movie, a little frumpy , less violence for a Chang Cheh pic and less modern action scenes, more on pure martial arts. The most interesting and dramatic points in the script are hardly scratched; Huang is fallen in love with Shen Yan, but she's only for vengeance. You don't know, what happened the last 5 yrs to them and their friendship and what Huang is thinking. Instead the moral conflict between revenge and task of the police is shown, unusual for Chang Cheh, who's just out for revenge in his other movies.

Police Force was set as 1 of the first police crime movies in HK, and got full support of the police; the production really looks quite impressing because of that. Realism isn't the main thing, mostly in favor of the action: Huang alone rushes into danger to single-handedly tackle at least 20 thugs.and he isn't using his gun, so.... These sequences are well filmed, but nothing special, too static and slightly non-effective. And it's Karate, not Kung Fu.

Acting is quite good, especially by Wang Chung in a rare leading role; Fung Hak On is unfortunately underused. Fu Sheng has 1 of his first screen moments here, a short but important one.

Slightly above average, I expected a more gritty, more excessive movie.
