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 »

Finally
9 August 2000 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Not to scare anyone off but this film is what America is scared to make because of the school shootings. Now everyone thinks they have to tone down on the violence and who is doing the violence. But this comes out of Hong Kong and it's a rated R teen action comedy. The story is very thin and I will try to do my best. A police station is bombed to cover up a large arms deal going down on the same night. And assigned on the case is a cop who has very large problems. He hires three teens to go undercover and infiltrate a mob and find out who bombed the police station and where the arms are going. This film is fitted for teens, lots of loud techno music, bright colors, teenage themes and enough action to make even John Woo happy. The action is fast and furious. There are lots of gunfights, explosions and fights. Produced by Jackie Chan himself this film knocks all those want to be teen action films (Mod Squad) out of the water. Anyone under 21 will enjoy this film a whole lot. And it also appeals to older action film fans. Gen-X Cops does what the titles say it's a teenage action thriller that is fully loaded.
