A lazy cop and a H.K. inspector team up to find an elusive murderer.
18 February 2005 | by (Sacramento, CA) – See all my reviews

The Case of the Cold Fish (1995) stars Michael Chow and Michael Wong. The two actors are a like in many ways. They're both foreign actors who made careers in Hong Kong (Wong's from the U.S. whilst Chow hails from Canada). The two make a very likable duo and turn this movie from what ordinarily be a mundane police drama into an enjoyable action comedy.

A lazy and bored (but content) island police officer (Michael Chow) is finally given a case that's interesting. A series a bizarre murders have scared the locals silly. To make matters worse, a Eurasian Hong Kong inspector (Michael Wong) makes a fool out of himself after partying too hard causing a drunken riot. Inspector Wong wakes up in a holding cell and learns about his late night escapade. Whilst in jail he quickly befriends the island cop and protects him from the angry locals who are not only afraid of the murderer but have a strong dislike for Inspector Wong because he represents the Hong Kong government and they suspect he's their to prevent them from re-uniting with mainland China! When the two officers decide to help each other out (with a little convincing from Danny Lee) can they put their heads together and catch the killer before it strikes again?

A very likable movie featuring two underrated stars. Sad that Michael Wong can't break into Hollywood, but he's found a home in the Hong Kong Cinema. Danny Lee not only produces this gem but he has a cameo appearance as well.

Recommended.
