Movie Details

A young still relatively unknown Chow Yun Fat stars in this low-budget critically panned police action-comedy. Fresh out of the academy, straight-laced and obtuse rookie cop Chu quickly lands in hot water when his integrity and by-the-book manner gets his colleagues in trouble. When he accidentally exposes his British boss' illegal gambling ring, the humiliated now ex-cop sends a gang of roughguards after Chu. While Chu's friends try a variety of different means to bail their buddy out, including visiting their local Taoist priest and a Peking opera troupe, a loose affiliation of goons and crime lords try to bring the hapless innocent down. ~ Jonathan Crow, Rovi
