Storyline

Two detectives who are up to their necks in trouble and in each other's face, as they try to shut down a drug-trafficking scheme that could be connected with international ties to organized crime. But in the mist of their investigation, innocent immigrant dock worker Luk Wan-Ting gets caught up in the mix when he witnesses the murder of an intelligence operative and is framed for the crime. After escaping police custody and after his friend is brutally killed by hired assassins in search of a film negative that Luk lost, he has no choice but to return to Hong Kong until the heat cools off. Donny and Penny Yeung are called in to extradite him with the aid of Captain Michael. Penny believes that Luk is innocent and tries to do everything in her power to help him, while Donny who is skeptical about Luk's innocence, thinks he's guilty and does his best to snap the cuffs on him. As the two do more investigating, they learn that the drug cartel could have connections with rogue C.I.A. ... Written by Keno Reeves (spywatcher459)

Quotes

Luk Wan-Ting: Madam Yeung, you know I'm innocent!
Madam Yeung: [skeptically] I thought you were, but then you ran off to Hong Kong. And you attacked an officer in Seattle.
Luk Wan-Ting: They tried to kill me at the station. Then they killed my buddy when he tried to help me. I guess I'm not sure who I can trust.
Michael Wong: People are less likely to believe your story after how you behaved. Sounds pretty far-fetched. But after we take you back, we'll see what we can do to gather some evidence to back up your stories and find the truth.

Excellent martial arts film
2 June 2000 | by (Stockton, CA) – See all my reviews

This is one great action film. It combines the fighting talents of Cynthia Khan and Donnie Yen with Yuen Woo-Ping's excellent directing skills. The plot is something about a witness to a murder by the CIA who flees to Hong Kong. However, this movie is filled to the brim with fight scenes. Of note is Donnie's fight with Michael Woods, the dirt bike joust, Cynthia's fight in the elevator shaft, and the last big brawl. There are so many good fights, that this movie isn't to be missed.
