Four new Banshee Squad Members join the Hong Kong Police Academy to undergo training supervised by Madam Wu (Sibelle Hu). Their personalities don't click with the current Squad Members, resulting in petty arguments and duels. However, they later make peace with one another as they join the Tiger Squad Members, supervised by Inspector Kan (Shui-Fan Fung), to undergo new training courses together and combine forces to take down a band of terrorists.

I wasn't able to track down a copy of the first movie of this series before watching this first sequel - if I had, maybe I would have had some of the same complaints that the previous reviewer had with this movie. I can only judge this movie alone. Anyway, I found this movie to overall be a fun little movie. It never takes itself seriously, and it has a high spirit that is infectious. The action (what there is) is pretty well done.
Any complaints? Well, the biggest complaint I have with this movie is that there's no plot - it's basically a series of vignettes. The shower sequence, which could have provided some welcome gratuitous nudity, shows nothing. And while there's action in the movie, it's mostly in the second half - the first half could have used some action to liven thing up a bit more. But despite these things, I think most viewers will enjoy themselves.
