Nice action-comedy improved by the presence of Chow Yun-Fat
9 June 2000 | by (Froland, Norway) – See all my reviews

Tiger On The beat has a standard storyline about 2 policemen, who are partners. It is a fact that foreigners in American films play villains and other bad guys. It is just the same in Tiger On The Beat, and all Americans in this Asian film are villains. Hongkong-movies are known for their high-quality-action-scenes, and Tiger On The Beat doesn`t disappoint. Some of the actors deliver a stiff performance though. 8/10
