Storyline

In Hong Kong, someone is murdering call girls every Friday night. Supercop Ko goes into action but engenders the enmity of Ken, another cop, when the murderer kills Ken's girlfriend during a stakeout. Ko also must protect Maddie, a lively prostitute who survives one assault and whom the murderer has promised to kill. The murderer teases Ko with phone calls and letters, announcing victims ahead of time, and threatening Ko's wife and daughter. This may be too much for the marriage to endure and a separation looks likely. In fatigue and desperation, Ko takes up with Maddie. Can Ko protect his family, save Maddie, catch the killer, and avoid internal police strife? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Not earthshaking, but watchable.

Yam plays--what else?--an on-the-edge Hong Kong CID officer who must find the "Friday Killer"--a dual-sport motorcycle-riding, black leather-clad enigma--before he strikes again. The Friday Killer's victims of choice are HK prostitutes (and the occasional cop's wife who happens to look like one); when a firecracker named Maggie (Lee) is targeted, Yam must protect her.

You'd think it would be pretty easy to knock a guy off a motorcycle, but not when he (or she, hint-hint) possesses physics-defying bike-handling skills that put M:I-2's Ethan Hunt to shame. An interesting diversion with a surprisingly good ending--and a very erotic (if chaste) encounter between Yam and Lee (formerly known as Loletta Lee).
