Product Description

Amazon.ca

This is what The Mod Squad wanted to be. Chan (Eric Tsang), a cop on the fringe of the force, assembles a team of loose-cannon cadets--the Gen-X Cops--to infiltrate the mobs of Hong Kong, and they find a stolen shipment of explosive rocket fuel. Dressed in skin-tight leather and vinyl, hip to the point of being ridiculous, our heroes (named Jack, Alien, and Match) have to fight not only ultraviolent criminals but also hostile factions within the police as they track down a supercool Japanese gangster with no fear of death. The clichés fly fast and thick, and the plot is at times incomprehensible, but the action is pretty much nonstop. A shootout in a surfboard factory is particularly spectacular but is only one of several rapidly edited, stunt-filled sequences. The dubbing is better than usual (though subtitles would still be preferable), and there's some unfortunate homophobia, but the actors are all good-looking, the rock soundtrack is loud, the colors are bright, and the attitude is intense. Gen-X Cops even features a cameo by Jackie Chan, who's somehow involved with presenting the film. A slick, silly, and very entertaining movie. --Bret Fetzer

GEN-X COPS (Hong Kong - 1999): Jackie Chan co-produced this routine blockbuster as a showcase for some of Hong Kong's hottest new teen stars, including Nicholas Tse Ting-fung, Stephen Fung Tak-lun, Daniel Wu Yin-cho and comic relief Sam Lee Chan-sam. The convoluted storyline posits Tse, Fung and Lee as a trio of rebellious young cops, recruited as undercover agents by police commander Eric Tsang Chi-wai to investigate the shady business dealings between low-level Triad underling Wu and a Japanese crime lord (Toru Nakamura) who has seized a shipment of deadly explosives for nefarious purposes, prompting a sequence of betrayals and counter-betrayals amongst members of the opposing criminal factions, until events reach an explosive climax during a showdown at the newly-opened Hong Kong Convention Center.
Veteran director Benny Chan Muk-sing (A MOMENT OF ROMANCE, NEW POLICE STORY) marshals proceedings into a cohesive whole, though the movie fizzles badly after a dynamic opening sequence before rallying again somewhere around the halfway mark. The action scenes are staged and executed with all the breathless abandon one expects from HK cinema, but many of them unfold so quickly, it's often difficult to know who's doing what to whom, or even why, and crucial plot points are sometimes lost along the way. Few of the actors emerge with any credit, though Nakamura is admirably solemn as an English-speaking Japanese villain who clings to old-fashioned notions of truth and righteousness in a world where such virtues no longer have currency. The young leads are OK (Wu's transition from beleaguered second-in-command to ruthless hard man is surprisingly convincing), while Tsang spends much of his screen time trading insults with his younger, slicker police counterpart (Moses Chan Ho).

"Gen X Cops" isn't quite your average Hong Kong action movie, adopting instead the look of a low budget Hollywood summer flick. A trio of young cops with an attitude tail gangsters all while looking pretty damn cool at it. Jack (Nic Tse), Match (Stephen Fung), and Alien (alien-like Sam Lee) find themselves kicked out of police academy only to be picked up by Officer Chan (Eric Tsang), himself on the outs with his unsympathetic superiors. Chan wants their help on a dangerous undercover mission, one involving gang bosses, gang betrayals, and rocket fuel (??) They're joined by Y2K (Grace Yip) whose sole purpose it seems is to be the tough girl of the group. Everyone's got a little something to prove and set out to get a little respect. Balletic gunfights, questionable English, and the explosion of a Hong Kong landmark ensue.
The formulaic plot satisfies for the most part and makes sense in that action movie sort of way. Nothing is too over-the-top, equaling harmless fun for all. Clearly no one is taking themselves too seriously, and director Benny Chan was smart in throwing in a healthy dose of humor. The end result is a slick, satisfying 1 1/2 hour reality break.
The cast consists mostly of young talents but the older actors turn in some scene stealing performances as well. Francis Ng, who owns every role he takes, stands out as gang boss Lok. He possesses an intensity that keeps his character believable without giving into parody. (Beware Jackie Chan fans; he produced the movie and only appears for a one minute cameo at the end.)
The DVD extras won't disappoint either.

I read some reviews not knowing whether to watch this movie or not. There were some positive reviews, and then there were some negative ones. On my thirteenth birthday, I was at the store buying this.
The movie looked really cool, with an interesting cast and some great action sequences. I know the girls will go crazy over Nicholas Tse and Stephen Fung, my cousin thinks they're real cute. I had never seen a movie like this. It was hip, humorous, and like I said the action was awesome.
The dubbing matches the actors quite well if you ask me. When you listen to their dubbed voices, it sounds as if it could actually almost be them. In the Cantonese/Mandarin version there is some English being spoken.
The special features are awesome also, including a music video, a making of-featurette, and some awesome trailers.
Overall, this movie is great. I think that a little over 10 bucks isn't enough to charge for a movie like this. Do not bother renting this movie. Just buy it. It's awesome. By the way, if you like this one, there is an internationaly made sequal titled Gen-Y Cops. I know, the name is kind of corny but at the same time makes sense. Anyway, that one is even better.

Okay: plot - incomprehensible and stupid; dialogue - trite, hackneyed, inexplicably often in English and not always terribly good English (why can't they just use Cantonese or Japanese for goodness' sakes?), in particular Akatora; special effects - really quite cheap, the much-vaunted HK$30m is only £3m, after all; incidental music - EVERY time there is a badly scripted romantic clinch between Stephen Fung and Jaymee Ong (an underdeveloped, badly acted and unconvincing plot line if ever there was one) you get a high pitched guitar instrumental which is incredibly CLICHÉD: just stop it, all right?
It is only worth watching for a comedy turn as a SWAT commander by HK movie expert Bey Logan. However, we can be thankful that the film was at least dubbed into Cantonese with full lip-synch as opposed to the more regular half a minute out dialogue. Don't even think about risking the English dubbed version.
In the end, the only Generation-X hero worth watching is the remarkably young Jet Li in Once Upon a Time in China 1 & 2. Which are both runaway five-star efforts.
