Movie Info

Gordon Chan directed this Hong Kong action drama about Kowloon cop Tung (Anthony Wong). Addicted to gambling, Tung takes an occasional bribe. He shows his new partner, American-born Michael Cheung (Michael Fitzgerald Wong), aka "The King of Killers," the usual neighborhood routines. The duo deals with triad trickery after gang leader Big Brother (Roy Cheung) leaves town. Mike meets Yoyo (Kathy Chau), one of the women Big Brother kept on a string. Left dangling after Big Brother's departure, Yoyo begins a relationship with Mike. Shown at the 1998 Hong Kong Film Festival and in the Market section at the 1998 Cannes Film Festival.

Critic Reviews for Yeshou xingjing (Beast Cops)

All Critics (3) | Top Critics (1)

Unfortunately, the acting is wildly uneven, from Michael Wong's irremediably wooden performance as the clean cop to Anthony Wong's insightful portrayal of the dirty one, a man who treats the mobsters on his watch like blood brothers.

Audience Reviews for Yeshou xingjing (Beast Cops)

Excellent police drama with great performances by all cast members, but particularly Anthony Wong. Deserves all the acclaim it gets, a great look at police corruption. The fact that I love this film when I was expecting it to be a horror movie (my favourite genre) and it turned out to be a drama speaks very highly of it indeedydoo.
