Storyline

Michelle Yip of the Hong Kong police is a mild-mannered Kung Fu expert; Michael Wong from air security is happy-go-lucky, stuck on himself, constantly talking, and smitten by her; Yamamoto is quiet, hard-boiled, leaving the Tokyo police to spend time with his wife and daughter. They form an alliance when they foil a hijacking on a plane flying a mob prisoner from Tokyo to Hong Kong. The mobster and his would-be rescuer die; this sets off two avengers who were their blood brothers. Our three cops become the targets. A high-speed chase, a car bomb, the destruction of a nightclub, a spectacular suicide, dead bystanders, and a flying coffin litter the landscape by the end. Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Early Michelle Yeoh
20 August 2004 | by (Glen Cove, New York) – See all my reviews

It maybe Michelle Khan in the credits but it Michelle Yeoh.(Chinese Stars often have numerous names by which they are known.)

This is the first in a series of films about a group of police officers who end up on various action packed exploits. I have not watched them all, but I'm told that they are all pretty good with this one being the best.

This has a great deal of action and humor and if you like action films this is a good one to see whether you're a fan of Hong Kong Cinema or not since it all movies along nicely.

The films only real flaw is the fact that its dated some what. What was current back in 1986 when this was made now seems very of a period and almost annoying. Thankfully the stuff going on on screen makes you forget that and sucks you into the action.
