"Millionaire Cop" is an odd mixture of an action movie, a police buddy movie and a family situation comedy. There is even a bizarre incident involving one of the lead cops who is handcuffed to a petty criminal. What stands out is the action part of this choppy movie. Aaron Kwouk has a fight with the leader of a gang that goes from the street up the bamboo scaffolding of a building. When he wants to, Wong Jing, the director, can do a great job, as he does choreographing the fight up the bamboo poles. The kinetic action in this sequence does not entirely make up for the dull spots else. If its action you want, and you are willing to use your fast forward button, "Millionaire Cop" is okay. I saw this movie on a VCD with English and Chinese subs.
