He spends most of his time drinking beer and smoking hash while daydreaming. But when a group of thugs armed with AK-47's and .45's invade his terrain, he must over come his fear of that weapon to save his ex-wife and his fellow officers only armed with a .38 and a baton.

A Day Without Policemen (1994) was another category III film that starred genre favorite Simon Yam. He's a rural police officer who spends his days looking over is small island jurisdiction. A few years ago, he was a big city cop who's had a very nasty experience with a criminal that was armed with an A.K.-47. Watching his buddies getting ripped to shreds by this nasty assault rife has deeply scarred him for life. He prefers his new quiet assignment and doesn't complain. One day, some criminals decide to hide out on the island from the law. They cause trouble for the island residents. The cop freaks out when he hears the familiar sounds of that dreadful A.K.-47. Can he over come his fears and become the officer he once was? Will he take charge and defend the people? What will happen on that day that there were no policemen?
Highly recommended film. It's very never wracking and realistic. Unlike most of the category III genre.
