Movie Info

Young upstart cops are thrown into a maelstrom of danger in this Hong Kong-lensed action thriller. Ten tons of powerful explosives, recently recovered from smugglers, have been stolen by a Japanese terrorist group, led by criminal mastermind Akatura, and the Hong Kong police have to act quickly before the explosives fall into the wrong hands or are used against the wrong people. Chan (Eric Tsang), a effective but non-conformist police detective, decides to use cops that no one will suspect are

Style can't make the three lead characters less annoying.

Audience Reviews for Gen-X Cops (Dak ging san yan lui)

Another Benny Chan movie, which means another typical Hong Kong action adventure cop film. This one doesn't include Jackie Chan though.The story is nothing new by any means. Young rookie cops set out to get the bad guys. Then you have bad guys betraying other bad guys. The film itself moves at a fast pace, but still isn't all that entertaining. Probably because the story doesn't go too deep. The dialogue doesn't really help either. I assume it is written for laughs, but for the most part, it just turns out corny. When all is said and done with this film, it just feels like a male version of Charlie's Angels.The acting is everything you should expect from this type of film. OK, not great. There are a ton of recognizable faces though. This is a chance to see earlier roles from Nicholas Tse and Stephen Fung. The ever popular Daniel Wu also shows up here. The only acting worthy of note is from Francis Ng, who did what he could with the little airtime that he got. As mentioned earlier, this is a Benny Chan film without Jackie Chan. But don't be too discouraged because Jackie does make a cameo at the end, although it is nothing to write home about. At least the beauty of both female characters, Grace Yip and Jaymee Ong, give the males something to cheer about.Of course this film would be nothing without the action. There are the usual explosions and shootings throughout. Yet, it still feels like it didn't meet the standard quota of what to expect. I guess without Jackie, the choreography and the stunts take a dive. There is a nice martial arts sequence at the end, but it isn't enough to really stand out.This is just another Hong Kong action adventure. Nothing more. Watch it if you like these types of films.
