Good dumb fun., 30 June 2014
Author: BA_Harrison from Hampshire, England

Coolio—he of the Gangsta's Paradise and the craaaazy hair—has a major role in Hong Kong action flick China Strike Force, which is enough to make any sane martial arts movie fan hesitate about watching; but even though the rapper's performance is as diabolical as one might expect, the film is simply too much fun to ignore. China Strike Force is also totally preposterous much of the time and requires a huge amount of suspension of disbelief, but it is precisely this bonkers 'screw logic' approach that makes matters so entertaining.

The opening scene gives a pretty good indication of what we're in for: cop buddies Alex (Leehom Wang) and Darren (Aaron Kwok) are on a mission to save a hostage, and use their martial arts skills to pummel the enemy into submission. After much hard-hitting violence it is revealed that the whole thing is actually a police training exercise—one in which the pretend enemy are willing to take an awful lot of damage for the sake of realism (and in which Alex and Darren seem more than happy to risk blindness, the other cops content to shoot the good guys in the head with paint-balls!).

After this daft intro, we get into the story proper: Coolio plays a drug dealer (also named Coolio—what are the chances?) trying to break into the Chinese market. Mark Dacascos is Tony Lau, Coolio's Shanghai contact, who goes against his uncle Ma's wishes by importing narcotics. Wang and Kwok are the policemen out to stop the drug smugglers, helped by beautiful Japanese Interpol agent Norika (played by the drop-dead gorgeous Norika Fujiwara). And that's really all you need to know about the plot, 'cos all the fun is in the fast, furious and far-fetched action…

Marvel as one of the cops rides a motorbike onto the roof of a car, and then defies physics by leaping onto the top level of an open top bus. Watch in amazement as a racing car is driven underneath a moving lorry at high speed. Drool in excitement as Noriko does stretching exercises in a prison cell. Thrill to the sight of Kwok and Dacascos fighting on top of a pimped up, purple and yellow Rolls Royce suspended from the bottom of a helicopter. And stare in disbelief as Coolio, Noriko and Kwok battle it out on a plate glass window teetering like a see-saw hundreds of feet above ground level.

Thanks to its death-defying stunt-work (check out the end credits to see some of the not so successful attempts) and director Stanley Tong's excellent handling of the action, China Strike Force manages to be a hugely enjoyable no-brainer—even with Coolio in it!
