Storyline

Inspector Waipong Wong has to put his life and resignation from the Hong Kong police department on hold to investigate his former partner's mysterious murder. What he and his crack team of three other cops uncover is a plot far more sinister than they originally anticipated. Written by Spaz <junebug2@texas.net>

Hardcore police drama, from Hong Kong (of course).
19 February 2005 | by (Sacramento, CA) – See all my reviews

The Big Heat (1988) was a violent and brutal police drama that is still shocking and disturbing. A police inspector(Waise Lee) is partially crippled in his quick draw hand. He's haunted by the fact that he'll never be able to use it like he did ever again. Meanwhile a brutal crime lord (Chu Kong) is making all kinds of trouble amongst the Hong Kong Police department. Corruption is at an all time high and no one is innocent. Inspector Lee and his partner (Philip Kwok) are assigned a new partner (Matthew Wong) and a foreign fellow officer, the four of them make a very unlikely group of officers. Their job is to take out and apprehend the crime lord (or is it?). The hot Joey Wong is the love interest of the novice officer.

If you like no holds barred action films, then look no further. Violent deaths, brutal fist fights and hardcore action is the rule in this movie. I haven't seen anything like this in a long time and neither will you. Maybe some day a true uncut version of this movie will appear. But don't worry about it because I doubt it'll be any more bloodier than it already is.

Highly recommended for the sheer carnage alone.
