Kuan Tai Chen
A Kung Fu master finds out that an opium den is destroying the lives of the town he lives in, and vows to put an end to the den, but first he must try to defeat the strongest enemy he has ever faced: his addiction to the drug itself.
If there's one thing you will leave this movie thinking, it's, "Who the heck is that white guy who speaks fluent Cantonese?" The answer would be Brian Ireland, a Hong Kong businessman and friend of Danny Lee, making his acting debut as a lawyer who wants to become a police officer, because he likes guns. Meanwhile, the rest of the force, led by Danny Lee, are saddled with debt (like everyone else in Hong Kong) and the loan sharks (led by an over-the-top Lam Suet who has half his dialogue bleeped out it's so foul) are getting vicious. A very modest film with small ambitions, SHARK BUSTERS captures the current economic state of Hong Kong, and leads the debtors through feelings of helplessness and suicidal tendencies to empowerment and a willingness to fight back. The cops become Hong Kong's modern answer to Robin Hood. More engaging as a social commentary than as a movie, the action scenes barely heat up despite liberal application of some loud hip-hop LMF on the soundtrack.
