Trivia

The police station was actually shot on the fifth floor of West Island School in Hong Kong. The meeting room is actually the study room of the upper school area, and it also doubles as the infirmary. Other scenes take place right outside of that room. In fact you can see the blue lockers in the background. 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 »

If this is the new generation of Hong Kong action cinema, I'll stick with the old one...
16 June 2005 | by See all my reviews

...and here's why:

1) The plot is an overlong, unengaging mess

2) The action scenes are generic (mostly shootouts in which it's often hard to tell who's shooting at whom, and special effects-enhanced explosions).

3) The fight scenes are brief and overedited. There is one girl (Grace Yip) that appears to be a better fighter than the three male leads, and where is she during the climactic fight? Nowhere to be seen!

4) 15 years after the "Lucky Stars" series, Eric Tsang is still providing the same kind of lame-brained "comic relief". Isn't it time for this guy to give it a rest?

Two spectacular sky-diving sequences are all I'll remember from this one...and yes, it's easy to see why the very handsome Nicholas Tse has so many female fans.

*1/2 out of 4.
