Road accident of a movie that misses being decent enough to enjoy or bad enough to have fun with.
26 August 2006 | by (Glen Cove, New York) – See all my reviews

Inspector Fu is a bad cop. A really bad cop, he'll kill anyone for any reason and lie cheat and steal when ever he can. After coming to the rescue of a two men trying to get out from under the pressure of owing some gangsters money, he turns around and sets them up to take the fall for some of his own corruption. Fu is eventually arrested and sent off to jail. However before he can get there he is rescued and flees to mainland China. Sometime later Fu is living the life of a powerful boss in China, however the men he set up are looking for revenge and the police are starting to close in.

This is a not very good action tale. The action, when it comes, is very uneven with some fight scenes being very well done, while others, in particular the gun fights being laughably bad, the rescue scene of Fu is jaw droppingly awful with everyone moving all together and no one even aiming anywhere near the other side. The acting is very uneven as well with Fu and the two wronged men giving good performances, and everyone else being okay but needing some time in an acting class (I mean, since when do military people slouch? Or wear uniforms from good will?). The plot spins out in odd nonsensical directions seemingly because that was what they felt like that morning.

Its a road accident of a movie thats not really worth seeing except in the same way you can't take your eyes off the carnage. And while its not a complete disaster (there is something about the character of Fu that is intriguing) its neither bad enough to be good nor good enough to be worth sitting through. Then again if I ever ran across it on TV and there was nothing else on I could see it again but only as a real time killer.

Somewhere between 3 and 4 out of 10.
