Overview

Two young Shanghai detectives, Alex (Wang Lee Hom) and Darren (Aaron Kwok), uncover the plot by an ambitious and ruthless mobster, Tony (Mark Dacascos), to bring tons of cocaine into China sold to him by Los Angeles drug dealer Coolio (Coolio). Darren is distracted by the arrest of mob-gal Norika (Norika Fujwara), who isn't what she seems, and Alex's life is complicated with his impending engagement to the daughter of the local sheriff (Paul Chiang), who is helping them in their dangerous mission to stop the drugs from infiltrating their country.

Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide
This is an excellent bridge between Hong Kong action and American B-movies, combining the relentless and astounding stunts and wire-work that H.K. movies are known for with a plot that is considerably more coherent than most Chinese thrillers. When draw-dropping martial arts battles or eye-popping stunts aren't taking place onscreen -- which isn't often -- writer/director Stanley Tong rarely slows down; the charismatic actors forward the story at a pleasing enough pace, and in English, (thankfully) not dubbed. There are a few slow pockets, and the racist tension between Tony and Coolio is awkward, but the set pieces are the reason to watch, and even Coolio, or at least Coolio's stunt double, is extremely effective. The battle on the rooftops of moving autos and trucks on an open freeway, which includes some unbelievably hilarious tricks with a motorcycle, makes one wonder if the Wachowski brothers caught this before filming The Matrix Reloaded. The climactic threesome chopsocky fight, which takes place on a rectangle of glass teetering on a tether atop a high-rise building (and under a flaming helicopter!) is breathtakingly audacious.
