Storyline

A group of industrial spies are arrested by the Hong Kong government, instead of being sent to prison they are offered a special mission. The printing plates for the British Pound have been recently stolen but the Hong Kong government has found out that the plates are in the possession of MI5 (British Intelligence). In fear of the plates being sold to the counterfeiting market the Hong Kong government wants the industrial spies to steal the plates back. The team is composed of Jackal, Cash, Sam, Titan and Phoenix each of them with their specialties that will be invaluable to the completion of the mission. Written by Sonja Pavkovic

Nice packaging but not much substance
17 September 2000 | by avleongSee all my reviews

Very typical of Hong Kong movies, "Torpedoes" provides a superficial package to look "nice", but lacks the substance to really make the movie complete. Quite a number of places just do not add up eg. no MI5 agents showed up in Budapest to stop the bad guy when they knew of his where about. The movie looks "slick","cool" & "entertaining", but it makes MI5 & some audiences look ridiculous!
