Violent Cop
Year: 2000 "Tobacco, my only friend."
Michael Wong checks out his stogie
Director: Steve Cheng Wai-Man
Producer: Lee Siu-Kei
Cast: Michael Wong Mun-Tak, Anthony Wong Chau-Sang, Lai Yiu-Cheung, Astrid Chan Chi-Ching, Moses Chan Ho, Iris Chai Chi-Yiu
The Skinny: Starring Beat Takeshi! No, not really. This standard cop action film is just that: standard. Despite a good cast, this movie is only occasionally interesting.
Review
by Kozo:
     This serial-killer thriller is a watchable exercise, but it ultimately offers nothing more than the typical HK hodgepodge of wacky side characters, sickening bad guys, and righteous indignation by the cops. Michael Wong is the lead cop, whoís out to clear his name in the accidental shooting of fellow cop Moses Chan. He plans to solve Chanís case, and gets wacky pimp Anthony Wong to help him. While the casting gets us primed for a top-notch Beast Cops reunion, we instead get an average cop action movie thatís only sporadically interesting. Normally I don't think much of Michael Wong, but even he deserves better than this. (Kozo 2000)
