If you are a fan of Hong Kong movies you are likely familiar with the way they combine different genres, i.e. Kung Fu and Horror, for a lot of thrills and fun. Ultracop 2000 tries to combine elements of Highlander and Hardboiled, among others. But I am writing this comment in case you've seen this movie on the shelf at your local video store and thought about checking it out. Forget it! For some reason this flick has also been released on DVD but it hardly merits a VHS release. The cop characters are extremely wooden and the Highlander-type aliens seem more clownish than dramatic. The gun play looks and sounds like cap guns, and junkers are used in the 15 m.p.h. car crashes. The entire budget for this movie was probably about $100, and that's Hong Kong dollars. They didn't spend a nickel on screenwriting that's for sure. Rent something else.
