Storyline

Beijing police officer Zhang Hui Ling, who patrols Haidian District's Shuangyushu neighborhood in Beijing, has a job to do. Every day, he has to go out in the street with his cohort of security guards who speak a bewildering array of accents from all over China, and track down and arrest thieves, hucksters, and con artists. And he's good at it; after more than 10 years on the force, Zhang Hui Ling has an uncanny ability to sniff out criminals from the throngs of people passing through his district. He needs those skills in Shuangyushu, a migrant neighborhood where criminals congregate. Like the car thief who steal BMW's and Mercedes with interface gadgets he buys on the Internet, or the family gang who crash cars into passing automobiles and demand settlement on the spot, or the currency counterfeiters, con artists who dress as monks to defraud religious old women in crisis, or the former thief who was injured during his last arrest and now hounds his unemployed younger brother for ...

a multimedia contains no elements as a movie
28 November 2012 | by (NYC) – See all my reviews

This multimedia contains no essential elements of a quality movie: The-Blair-Witch-Project quality cinematography, creepy score, zero costume design, and non-existence screenplay.

Even its English title "Beijing Blues" for a crime docudrama implies it's a copycat of "NYPD Blues" / "Blue Blood". The problem is there is not even one blue shirt policeman in this clip. Yet there are ten or hundreds times more thieves, pickpockets, muggers, swindlers in one Haidin District of Beijing than you would see in your daily life. So who would like to visit the beautiful Beijing then? If the title is rephrased as "Mugging all the way in Beijing" I might give it a 5.
