A Hong Kong cop and two American cops are onto a suspected harbor worker and are forced to team up when they discover that the suspect is a witness on the run from CIA agents and their schemers; two corrupt cops.
The character played by Jaycee Chan wasn't originally scripted to die. Chan appealed to the director for his character's death, believing the film would be more powerful and true to life if one of the main heroes was killed. See more »

I'm generally a fan of Benny Chan's movie. The characters portrayed in his movie have charm only he can infuse into them, and this one is no exception. The story is about an outrageously nice cop played by Jaycee Chen who is now under surveillance because his brother who is also a cop is suspected of turning bad.
The fight scenes are pretty brutal, and you'd wonder why a nice guy like Jaycee has to be involved in a situation like this, but he is. Two other undercover police officers along with him battle for their lives against crooks who are trying to carve a living in society.
Jaycee Chen has all the charm, and character of both his mother and his father. He has looks that resembles them also, but the personality is all his own.
This level of brutality is unusual for Benny Chan, but along with the story and its characters, the movie is highly experimental, but it comes together in the end with pretty outrageous fight scenes.
Good movie even if you're not a fan of Benny Chan movies.
