Quotes

Boss Tin: Gangsters, before 1997, could that they were patrotic. Now, no one uses that slogan anymore. It's outdated. Everything in Hong Kong is in order. Whoever breaks the law would be pinned. Most gangsters have moved up to Mainland China. Hong Kong is changing, so we must change as well. We must follow the laws, and refrain from fighting. We must try to live in the grey zone, and that's the best for us.

A mobster movie without a hard punch...
2 March 2013 | by (Denmark) – See all my reviews

Being a big fan of Asian cinema, and with a preference for the Hong Kong scene, it is always nice to fall upon something that I haven't seen before. Hong Kong is known for its mobster action movies, however "Cop on a Mission" ("Ji fat faan fat") just didn't really stand out there, looming in the shadows of movies such as "Infernal Affairs" and many of the John Woo movies. And for a mobster movie, then "Cop on a Mission" turned out to be rather tame, as it was more focused on the intricate affairs within the gang as it was on the action towards rivaling gangs and such.

Even with boasting two big names as Daniel Wu and Eric Tsang on the billing list, "Cop on a Mission" just didn't make the cut. It turned out to be a rather mundane and anti-climatic movie. The best part of the movie was actually the ending, which I will not spoil here. Personally, I enjoyed the performance of Eric Tsang more than that of Daniel Wu. There is just something dynamic and charismatic about Eric Tsang and his diversity in his acting.

The story in "Cop on a Mission" just doesn't really shift out of a neutral gear, and just trots along at a fairly average pace, which sort of is a shame, because the movie did have potential. Plus the way that the story evolves and turns out is just a tad to much, because it just doesn't really seem all that plausible.

For true fans of the Hong Kong movie scene, there will be some enjoyment to be found here, but be warned that there are far, far better Hong Kong movies available. And I suppose this is more in the likes of a movie for fans of Daniel Wu and Eric Tsang.
