The Skinny: Decent action but horrid everything else make this later Sammo Hung/Yuen Biao collaboration a mixed bag leaning towards the negative.
by Kozo:
     This action-comedy from Sammo Hung is notable because it was the almost-reunion of Sammo, Yuen Biao, and Jackie Chan. However, Jackie couldn’t make the party so he was replaced by Takeshi Kaneshiro. Surprisingly, Kaneshiro handles himself well and even does some of his own stunts. Unfortunately the movie doesn’t measure up at all, producing a sporadically entertaining, well-fought, but ultimately disjointed and useless film. 
     Sammo Hung is a tough cop who spars with a wild ‘n crazy customs cop (Yuen Biao with a natty goatee) over a large drug shipment. Takeshi Kaneshiro is Sammo’s new boss, who’s apparently quite cool but rates little screen time compared to the grizzled veterans. However, there are a number of factions angling for all the drugs - and Sammo and Yuen must make peace and take on the bad guys together. 
     While that set-up sounds reasonably generic, the film derails itself for extended police station wackiness featuring not one, but three comely females that serve to distract our two main stars. For some reason, chicks dig Sammo big time (guess who directed?), namely Annabelle Lau and the always charming Kathy Chow Hoi-Mei. Eileen Tung shows up as the tough female cop who catches Yuen Biao's eye. 
     All plot threads are dropped when a gang war starts between the two rival criminal factions - which leads to some of the most off-color, offensive, and plain bad racial depictions in Hong Kong Cinema to date. There’s actually some decent fighting in this film, but Takeshi Kaneshiro and Yuen Biao appearing in blackface only turns the proceedings sour. Sadly, this possible final glimpse of the Sammo Hung-Yuen Biao team couldn’t yield a better flick. It may ultimately be remembered for this ugly subtitle: “If possible, I would fart on her face.” Uh...yeah.
