Audience Reviews for Gen-Y Cops
First and foremost, this movie was surprisingly released in 2000, and not in 1991 as it clearly looks. I'm still trying accept this. Let's just say the cinematography isn't a reason to see it. Gen-X Cops 2: Metal Mayhem (also known as Gen-Y Cops) is a thoroughly amateurish, incredibly cheesy Hong Kong attempt at a Hollywood-style blockbuster. I haven't seen the first Gen-X Cops movie, so I can't compare the quality between the two. The sequel, however, falls firmly into the "so bad it's (almost) good" category. The dubbing is atrocious, the fight and action scenes (while occasionally entertaining) are poorly choreographed, some of the acting is beyond awful, and the story is a mess of stolen robots, police officers trying to clear their names, maniacal hackers, and slapstick humor. Probably my least favorite thing about it was that it was simply too long and too often it was boring. I only watched the movie because of Maggie Q. (not nearly enough of her) and Paul Rudd (in his most ill-fitting role ever, though he still manages to be unintentionally funny). If you have similarly extraneous reasons or you just want to see a cheesy, weird movie, give Gen-X Cops 2 a shot. Otherwise, stay far, far away.
First off, I got this because it was Jackie Chan endorsed and a sequel. Well, if the first one was this bad then I don?t know why they made another, and that has to be the reason Jackie Chan doesn?t even make a cameo. Second, so action-comedies from Hong Kong aren?t bad. This is supposed to be an action-comedy but the action is pretty weak and the comedy is the bad kind of slapstick, Tokyo Raiders for instance. This one had nothing going for it. A last reason I watched this is what I want to dissect more. This movie stars Maggie Q and Paul Rudd in it. I was curious. Maggie has been in big action and yet in this movie she doesn?t have one real action scene. Paul Rudd, who I don?t think has been in any action movie plays the leader of the FBI team sent to Hong Kong. Even more so, he?s supposed to be the tough talking angry character. How did someone pick him for that? It is actually very comical because it?s played so straight at first. At the very end, when he has some comedic moments, their funny because it?s Paul Rudd. Shouldn?t he have been the comic part of this action comedy and not the other two clowns? See it to see Rudd completely out of place. And that?s the only reason to see it.
No where near as good as the first. Maggie Q and Edison Chen do what they can.
