Starring: Michelle Yeoh
Director: Stanley Tong
Inspector Yang (Yeoh) is a no-nonsense cop from mainland China whose beauty is exceeded only by her mental agility and martial arts mastery. She is sent on special detatchment to Hong Kong to assist the police force there to break up a violent crime syndicate, but she soon discovers that somehow they manage to stay one step ahead of her. When she discovers that this is because they are being led by her former fiance, she is forced to choose between her heart and her duty. Which will win out, particularly when the choice will come down to the life of a fellow cop, or the life of the man she still loves?
"Supercop 2" isn't quite up to the high standard set in the original "Supercop" film (where she played an energetic foil to Jackie Chan's goofball Inspector Chan), but it is still a film that's filled with lots of fabulous stunts and over-the-top martial arts sequences. Yeoh is as good as ever, and the supporting cast also performs well, but the humor and excitement of the script falls short of the original movie. It's better than much of what is out there, but it doesn't rise to the level of excellent.
