The first part of the Lee Rock trilogy which chronicles the rise and fall of the corrupt police force that Lee Rock becomes a part of. Rock enters Hong Kong as an immigrant from the mainland. Despising poverty, Rock becomes a police officer. Being a clean officer made him little money so he decides to be like the other officers and become a crooked but fair officer. He's about to marry the woman of his dreams when tragedy strikes. But not even that can keep Lee Rock from rising to the top. Written by

Lee Rock (1991) Andy Lau stars as Lee Rock, a young man who'll do anything to get out of poverty. So he becomes a police officer. Eventually his life as an officer of the law crosses over with some influential crime bosses. While working his way up through the rankings, he meets all falls in love with two hot women (Chingmy Yau and Man Cheung) he also notices that there are many fellow officers that are corrupt and take bribes and what not. Will Lee Rock stay straight and narrow or will he become a bad cop?
Interesting film because it's followed by two other films. Alone it wouldn't make much sense. Feels more like a made for television film than an actually movie.
