Another Chinese Cop
For those Diana Pang Dan fans out there – and
there must be a few because she is one of the few actress’s in HK these
days who still have a fairly steady output of films (low budget as they
may be) – there are four minutes of celluloid contained in this film that
are a must see. The rest of the film is forgettable within minutes – but
these four minutes will keep you warm at night over the long cold winter
that is approaching! Now as a moral responsibility – as opposed to a flagrant
attempt at increasing hits at my site – so that you can judge whether your
children should see this – I am including a few moments of this dance!
Mind you she never sheds her clothes or shows
anything but some leg, buttocks and cleavage – but she puts on a little
hootchy kootchy dance that will raise the temperature of your TV set. One
of the more salacious if slightly corny scenes I’ve come across in a HK
Now what was the rest of the film about? Was there
a rest of the film? Barely. Anthony Wong and Tsui Kam-Kong are cops on
the mainland and Tsui is good friends with Billy Chow whose girlfriend
is Pang Dan. It takes a long while before anything shakes out in this film
– but finally Pang Dan tells Chow that her mother is ill and she needs
money or she will marry a rich man. He says he will come up with the money
– and this leads to the before mentioned scene.
They decide to kidnap a rich businessman, but
for whatever reason Pang Dan finds it necessary to put on a show for him
first. I guess if you are going to kidnap someone it is the least you can
do. Well they end up killing the fellow – and frame Yuen King-Tan for it.
Tsui “Baldie” suspects it his old friend though and feels obligated to
go after him. That would be about it.
What you may ask has Anthony Wong been doing through
all this. I am not at all sure – he is in a number of scenes but basically
sits around doing very little. When asked why he takes a film role in the
book “Cine East”, Wong confesses “Money. Most are just for money”. This
would certainly be one of those. Wong is a wonderful actor – one of the
very best most intense ones in HK – when he is in a film that he thinks
is worth the effort. But when he is in an obviously junky film such as
this – he sleepwalks through his role. Now if Pang Dan had done her little
number for Anthony – perhaps he would have woken up!
My rating for this film: 5.0
