Direct from the action capital of the world comes GEN-X COPS, rocket-fueled drama at its most arresting! Hong Kong police crack an underground ring of smugglers, seizing a massive shipment of explosives. But when the arms are recovered by Japan's public enemy number one, Akatura, the countdown begins to a sale of the deadly contraband that will place the world in the hands of international mercenaries! But when a rebellious trio of GEN-X COPS infiltrate the underworld, they discover that Akatura has a much more sinister plan for the volatile cargo than fueling worldwide warfare. Now the criminal instincts that nearly barred them from the force are the most powerful weapons the GEN-X COPS have to save the city from the devastating act of terrorism!
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

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).Read more ›
The movie involves a set of young and rebellious Gen-X cops that are given an undercover mission of recovering a shipment of explosives. They follow a guy named Daniel and are lead to a Yakuza bad guy (I don't remember the name) and blah blah blah, the plot is mad dumb. But you might end up drawn to the film's characters and some of the action scenes as well.
Go to Blockbuster and rent the movie first. The subtitles are corny but aren't that bad and half the movie was actually filmed in English anyway. Also watch the film for Toru Nakamura, who plays the Yakuza bad guy and delivers his lines in Japanese and English. His acting is so ghostly, he steals almost every scene he's in. Also check out Jaymee Ong, an Australian actress who is so damn gorgeous, if I was a filmmaker I'd put her in every movie I made. I want Jaymee Ong.
Anyhow, it was a nice corny diversion for a couple hours. I won't be watching it again though. Maybe the scene with Jaymee Ong dancing in the club, but that's it.
Asian actress/supermodel fans may want to keep their eyes peeled for hot newcomer Jaymee Ong. Half Chinese and half Australian, Jaymee's hot sexy looks accompanied by her lovely Aussie accent'll have you exclaiming,"Tia Carrere, Michelle Yeoh, Sung Hi Lee, Who are They! " in a heartbeat. HK Comedy fans'll dig that Chinese Joe Pesci guy who serves as th' group's mentor. Th' young stars of th' film are fantastic; many of whom are featured in current HK hits like "The Purple Storm", "A Man Called Hero" (also listed on amazon.com), and "2000 AD." Heck, one guy looks like a Chinese Matthew Lillard if you're into that guy...
Star Wars Episode II fans may want to listen to the head Japanese badguy's well-spoken, sinister English. If th' 20-something yr.Read more ›
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.
