A robot, on a killing spree? Cheap DVD? Sounds interesting to me. Welcome to the strange world of the y-gen cops. The y-gen cops are basically match and alien two unconventional cops. (Think great teacher Onizuka but more annoying.) These two idiots always manage to save the day in the most unusual way. For example whilst on a stakeout they use a cellphone to call for backup, only remembering in the nick of time they had accidently picked up the bomb phone. Thus destroying there ferrari. Both speak English, well kinda anyway. They try to speak English throughout most of the movie but what they say just comes out as lame. As this was a chinese movie I was surprised that most of the film is English. Incredibly as far as I can tell it was not a dub!! Although when they do speak chinese it is subtitled, well when the filmakers can be bothered to. Sometimes they speak entire sentences and no subtitles come up!
Anyway getting past all this basically the R-1 robot is to be sold to the highest bidder. The R-1 is an almost indestructable machine which is loaded with weaponry. The hong kong police and the FBI want it back before any damage is caused. But this is y-gen police, I doubt thats gonna happen! What follows is a large number of action sequences which can be pretty thrilling at times. Especcialy the ending. If you just wanted a film that you could just sit down to and have a good time, y-gen cops is probably it. Although, beware my the movie on my DVD came in full screen and not widescreen which can be rather distracting at times, but by the end of the film you should be used to it.
I find it hard to rate y-gen me and this film have a love-hate relationship. The voices annoy me, the action scenes excite me. So I'm going to give it a: 6 out of ten
