Beyond the Cop Line


Director: Chan Kwok Kuen

Stars: Anthony Wong, Alex Fong, Michael Chan, Carman Lee, Ng Ma

A fairly standard cop action/drama about a rookie (Carman Lee) who gets sent undercover to infiltrate a hostess club, where she falls for the Big Brother (Alex Fong), which of course provides complications for her as she tries to close the case. I say "fairly standard" because there are a couple of pretty disgusting rape scenes (one involving Anthony Wong using a cucumber in heinous ways on a woman) which undoubtedly went a long way to earning this movie's Cat III rating. Other than that, there's not much of note here. The acting is okay and there's a few decent action scenes, but the story is obvious and poorly paced.
