    Pour une fois, l'intrigue de ce cinquième opus de la saga In the Line of Duty est réellement incompréhensible et particulièrement tarabiscotée. Il n'en demeure pas moins que les combats vont de pair avec les quatre précédents, même s'ils ne sont ni réglés par Corey Yuen, Yuen Woo-Ping ou Donnie Yen. Cynthia Khan est de plus en plus crédible en policière incorruptible, David Wu est un bon man in distress et les méchants, interprétés dans le dernier acte par Billy Chow et Kim Penn (qui a un superbe combat avec Cynthia Khan), sont assez cruels pour être détestables. In The Line of Duty 5 est clairement moins bon que les autres et dure probablement quinze minutes de trop, mais il reste un très bon divertissment.

    I didn't even know that the In the Line of Duty series went this far, and realized there are 7 of them! Cynthia Khan returns this time, sadly without Donnie Yen or Michelle Yeoh. Her cousin David becomes a fugitive when he gets framed for his buddy Alan's illegal shenanigans, and has to help him find and arrest the mysterious General. What ensues is a basic plot, but a lot of hard hitting martial arts action. Khan fights a whole bunch of badguys, and has an epic duel with a blonde bodyguard in a showroom full of glass displays. It then turns into a full blown samurai sword fight. Despite the basic plot, it services the audience with tons of awesome fight scenes.

    I actually went in search of this film b/c my dad had the movie poster, which was a souvenir from Hong Kong. It had some blond chick kickboxing an asian chick, some guy holding a cobra, some other guy shooting a flamethower, and various fight scenes and exploading what-have-yous. This movie was a fun ride, but don't expect the plot to make sense.
