Trivia

After the fight in Daniel's bar, Match asks Alien why he disabled a gun he'd taken from one of Daniel's thugs instead of using it, to which Alien responds that that's what Jackie Chan always does. Jackie Chan is one of the film's producers and has a small appearance at the end of the film. See more »

Goofs

In a meeting early in the movie, the discussion is interrupted by Chan's belated entrance. As Chan takes his seat, we see computer screens behind him. Between shots, these screens change three times though everyone in the room is seated at the table and the people nearest the computers are facing away from the keyboards. See more »

Pretty boys galore
14 October 2004 | by See all my reviews

The one line summary says it all. They are young. They are cool. They kick ass. They are pretty boys (cops) with big guns (no pun intended). Add an uberly uber sexy Toru Nakamura as the vengeful Yakuza boss, and what you'll get is a Gift from Heaven TM for all slash fangirls. Who cares about the plot? (Which actually is quite interesting). Ahem. I'll be serious now. When top secret bomb material is stolen by an aspiring and vengeful Yakuza boss (masterfully played by the wonderful Toru Nakamura), a detective considered by his colleagues to be a clown, decides to hunt down the villain. To infiltrate the criminal organisation, he finds a trio of kicked-from-the-academy former cadets and sends them under cover. The "icredible trio" unravels the mystery and at the and has a big KABOOM fight with Yakuza boss. Simple premise, isn't it? Anyway, if you don't want to be mentally challenged and are looking for good time (pretty boys), some mindless shooting and fighting, nice special effects, that's the movie for you. 7/10
