Storyline

Two detectives who are up to their necks in trouble and in each other's face, as they try to shut down a drug-trafficking scheme that could be connected with international ties to organized crime. But in the mist of their investigation, innocent immigrant dock worker Luk Wan-Ting gets caught up in the mix when he witnesses the murder of an intelligence operative and is framed for the crime. After escaping police custody and after his friend is brutally killed by hired assassins in search of a film negative that Luk lost, he has no choice but to return to Hong Kong until the heat cools off. Donny and Penny Yeung are called in to extradite him with the aid of Captain Michael. Penny believes that Luk is innocent and tries to do everything in her power to help him, while Donny who is skeptical about Luk's innocence, thinks he's guilty and does his best to snap the cuffs on him. As the two do more investigating, they learn that the drug cartel could have connections with rogue C.I.A. ... Written by Keno Reeves (spywatcher459)

Trivia

You can clearly see Michael Wong being doubled for all of his fight scenes. This is because he has no martial arts experience at all and previously worked as a model. See more »

Goofs

When Michael Woods is fighting Donnie Yen on the roof and holding him in an arm lock, Woods head is originally to the right of Donnie's. In the next shot, it has swapped to the other side to be kicked. See more »

Quotes

Luk Wan-Ting: Madam Yeung, you know I'm innocent!
Madam Yeung: [skeptically] I thought you were, but then you ran off to Hong Kong. And you attacked an officer in Seattle.
Luk Wan-Ting: They tried to kill me at the station. Then they killed my buddy when he tried to help me. I guess I'm not sure who I can trust.
Michael Wong: People are less likely to believe your story after how you behaved. Sounds pretty far-fetched. But after we take you back, we'll see what we can do to gather some evidence to back up your stories and find the truth.

Masterpiece of the genre
5 September 2005 | by See all my reviews

"In The Line Of Duty 4" is one of the best kung fu movies ever made. I will simply list the reasons:

1) An astounding Cynthia Khan. She looks great, she fights great, and when she's required to, she can also act!

2) An incredible, young, full of I-want-to-show-the-world-what-I-can-do energy Donnie Yen.

3) Fight choreography that cannot be topped (and virtually wire-free, too).

4) Great, skillful, ruthless villains. Guys (and one woman) that make you wonder: can they be defeated?

5) Awesome, death-defying stunts.

6) A take-no-prisoners, anything-goes attitude that is unique to Hong Kong action cinema.

7) A simple and functional plot, that still manages to touch such subjects as friendship, betrayal and the emotional involvement of law enforcers.

Don't miss this film. Rating it within its genre, I give it a full **** out of 4 stars.
