Various government departments of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region have been criticised heavily by the public. The Commissioner welcomes the proposal of "Sunshine Cops" from public relations officer Geena to enhance the image of Hong Kong's finest. Both Lemon and Sammy have recently completed their Police Tactical Unit (PTU) training. They look like movie stars and are fit and ready to conquer the world. They are selected to represent PTU in the internal audition for "Sunshine Cops" and contest against elite from other units like Criminal Investigation Department and Task Force, etc. The competition is tough but they prevail.

How did this film ever get made? O (aka H2O, played by Stephen Fung) and Sammy (Ken Chong) are promoted to the role of the "Sunshine Cops" two young policemen (supposedly supercops) that are to promote a brighter image of the police force. However, they are somewhat then held at ransom by the press and paparazzi, who shame them with somewhat compromising pictures on the covers of the glossies. Meanwhile, a bandit is looking to kidnap a group of high school kids who have rich parents, and just so happen to be part of the Sunshipe Cops' fan base. So, you can guess what happens next, the cops seek to salvage their careers (read, image) by saving the kids.
This is a truly awful film. Not only was the dialogue and script dire, but there was little saving grace from the action. The martial arts choreography was basic and unrealistic. Camera angles were raw, editing of these shots hard amounted to any "sequences" as they weren't really sequential! Films such as these can make or break a film career and fortunately for Angelica Lee, she has gone onto some amazing performances since this early film of hers, although I'm guessing since her role wasn't that big, she couldn't be judge on this performance. Stephen Fung was too annoying for his own good, and you wonder if Ken Chong ever had any charisma.
This is not a film for anyone at all. Even the Power Rangers could come up with a better film than this by a proverbial mile. One to burn in the sunshine with a magnifying glass.
