taking manhattan

daddy says that cops like midnight swoops...


chung (lui chi-yin) is a hong kong police officer, who has been sent to new york, to work with the nypd. unfortunately, the officers he is going to team with are blown up with a pizza box bomb, leaving chung at a loose end. his wife (carrie ng) isn't particularly happy with this situation, and their relationship becomes a touch strained. still, lt. helen taylor (alana adena), chung's maverick boss has an undercover assignment for him; just the thing to sure up a marriage...

this is a bit of a strange production, being shot entirely on location in new york, complete with a plethora of new yorkers being dubbed into cantonese; including a blind, black, pirate radio dj. as the film plods through chung's undercover exploits; working with fiercely ambitious chen (andrew chan), there are moments of interest, but nothing of real quality or anything particularly memorable, save for it being slightly odd.

err...

the dvd is hk$32 from buyoyo.com
