The paths of a renegade cop (Tse), a rookie police officer (Chan) and a veteran detective (Yue) converge with explosive results, as they each take on their most deadly assignment to date: the arrest of Hong Kong’s most lethal mercenary gang and their ruthless leader, played by Kung Fu impresario Wu Jing.

Screen Rant’s Paul Young reviews The Spy Next Door
My expectations weren’t very high going into the theater to watch The Spy Next Door – but since my 7 year old daughter seemed excited to watch it, I figured I’d take her and go tough it out. I was pleasantly surprised to find that the movie is actually pretty good. Sure it has a ridiculous plot, over-the-top bad guys with bumbling henchmen and second rate secondary characters played by former country singing, mullet wearing, fathers of a pre-teen Disney show – but it also manages to stay on task by keeping the story consistent and coherent enough for children to follow.
The movie opens with a great montage
