A father's ex-girlfriend resurfaces after a 10-year absence wanting to take her son away from him. With his world shattered, he must decide between what is best for his son and his own future happiness.
A seasoned cop and his rookie partner are a pair of mismatched partners in this Hong Kong action-comedy in the style of 'Lethal Weapon'. The wacky twosome are up in arms as they try to solve the murder of a heroin trafficker.
A corrupt cop named Sam handles negotiations between two Triad leaders who plan to join forces. However, he meets a suspicious bald man named Tony, who keeps following him around and disrupting his personal business.
Ching Wan Lau,
Tony Chiu Wai Leung,
Sheng Gang Qi Bing : Sheng means province. It indicated Guangtong province in China. Gang means Hong Kong. Qi means flag. It indicated the 5-star flag which is the national flag of China. Bing means soldier.
The better tile for this movie might be "The Bannerman from China".
But it has a strange English title called "Long Arm Of The Law".
I have watched this movie when I was a kid in local theater. It was the first gangster movie in HK brought some foreign elements from China. The banner man from China entered HK illegally. They were the veteran of People Liberation Army of China but became robbers and gangsters in HK. They are different from local gangsters in HK and show more merciless and disciplinary. But their minds are always simple and pure. They just want to gain some money for their family or lovers in China.
