Extreme Crisis is a fast moving HK film with plenty of explosions and firepower
25 July 2000 | by (Queens, NY) – See all my reviews

In the opening credits for Extreme Crisis, Bruce Law identifies himself as Director.Stunt Co-Ordinator. This movie would be about eight minutes long of you removed all the stunt work and action sequences. There are plenty of stunts, shootouts and explosions, as a tough Hong Kong cop teams with a Japanese Special Details Unit (SDU) officer to filght a Japanese cult that is trying to free their imprisoned leader, held in an HK jail. Before HK authorities can turn over the cult leader to the SDU officer for extradition, "Lone", another cult member, goes on a killing spree in downtown Hong Kong, trying to force the release of his leader. While the story seems to have borrowed from Die Hard, including the villain Lone's attire, Extreme Crisis is a tougher movie. In this movie, there are no jokes, little chit chat and no attempt to humanize the psychopathic villains. What stands out is the destructive action sequences, such as when five parked cars on a downtown street are simultaneously launched skyward by a terrorist bomb. Extreme Crisis is all graphic detail, told in a linear story with no flashbacks to slow the action. If it is action you want, it is action you get from ace stunt director Bruce Law.
