An undercover cop badly injured in a raid is blamed for the raid's failure and thrown out of the police department. His injuries result in his being paralyzed form the waist down, and doctors tell him that if he doesn't have an operation within a few months, the paralysis will be permanent. His friends in the police department decide that, since the underworld was responsible for their friend's injuries, the money for the operation should come from them, and they set out to get it.Written by
I wonder why I sat all the way through this movie even though it was obvious within the first 3 minutes that it was bad....probably because I paid money to rent it instead of seeing it on TV for free. First of all, don't be fooled by the slick video cover, the movie looks awful - it has that unmistakable straight-to-video look of any low-budget American actioner. The script is disconnected and doesn't make any sense - most of the time you can't even tell the characters apart. And if you're expecting quality action (it is a Hong Kong movie, after all), forget it: the "action" comes mostly in the form of generic shootouts, which are so badly directed it's hard to know who's shooting at whom. There is also a brief, unexciting car chase, and absolutely no martial arts. The two main actors aren't bad, but everything else surrounding them is. 0.5 out of 4 stars.
