Awesome fight scenes
3 September 2006 | by See all my reviews

Cynthia Rothrock is the American FBI agent who goes to Hong Kong to capture a man who has evidence against a bigger criminal. There she has to team up with two local cops and face an army of killers who are also after her target. I've seen about 10 Cynthia Rothrock films so far, and "City Cops" has perhaps some of her best fight scenes ever. She is in GREAT form here, intense and aggressive, and at the end she gets to face (for the only time in her career) the elastic Japanese goddess Michiko Nishiwaki. She also looks quite pretty in this one, and her target's sister is a real cutie as well. Of course the movie has its flaws (there is too much bantering between the two HK cops, and too much time is spent on their romantic complications), but I'm still giving it a high rating (*** out of 4) just for the fights. Any Cynthia fan should definitely see this.
