The action is impactful, bloody, and mean but always so quickly and smoothly edited to within an inch of its life you’re never quite sure of how bloody and mean it is in the moment. Khan has some great fight scenes, while Yen gets to show off his impressive (and lightning fast) fists and feet in some wowzer fights, the most memorable being with the hulking Michael Woods, playing a vicious CIA thug, and another one with future fight coordinator John Salvitti, who plays another CIA baddie. For reference, Yuen Woo-ping belongs to a family line of martial arts performers, choreographers, and directors. When things don't go to plan, they go on a violent rampage through Hong Kong, and the only ones standing in their way is a newly promoted police cadet and a Japanese cop with a personal vendetta. Ladies First – Interview with Men Hoi (13:46) – in this all-new interview with the actor/stunt choreographer begins with his origins at the Peking Opera School including making his first film at seven years old.

Note: Although it was officially released before In the Line of Duty, the film was later marketed as In the line of Duty 2. Some minor filtering looks to have also been applied at varying degrees, yet the image doesn’t come off waxy looking, as Royal Warriors could. Select Scene Commentary with Cynthia Rothrock and Frank Djeng [Airport Scene] – the actress and critic discuss the production of the introduction of Rothrock’s character and the action scene itself. Cracking action movie with Cynthia Khan and a fresh faced Donnie Yen, reminds me of police story but just a bit more serious, with excellent fight scenes (as I expect with any film starring Mr Yen ) for any fan of Hong Kong cinema this is a must see. Eureka Entertainment to release, IN THE LINE OF DUTY III, the third instalment in the action film series, starring Cynthia Khan in her first breakthrough role.Ng seems to have the case under control when she is joined by Inspector Carrie Morris (Cynthia Rothrock), whose first scene in the movie is a knockout.

Archive Interview with Donnie Yen (20:29) – the archival interview with the star begins with a discussion of why HK Action Films are so “dangerous”. Michelle Yeoh and Cynthia Rothrock (then Kahn) star as the toughest cops on the streets, using fists, feet and guns to take down triads, thieves and international criminals. However, they still throw in some fun bits, like pointing out how the same airport appears in the first four films of the series and naming the cameos (that feel out of place, as they point out), while also throwing in a funny little story about a visit they made to Shaw Studios.

I’ve always had a love/hate view of Chan because of his personal views and whatnot, but he’s not the same as Logan.

As in the case of the other movies in this In the Line of Duty I-IV collection, there was an earlier Blu-ray from CMS in HK, as well as a UK-exclusive Eureka release that I assume utilizes the same 2K remaster as this 88 Films disc. We don’t share your credit card details with third-party sellers, and we don’t sell your information to others. As they begin to realize Wan-ting is nothing more than an innocent bystander they begin a dangerous game with the HK Drug Dealers trying to get back evidence that could incriminate the highest corridors of power in the United States. JJ Bona on Jake Gyllenhaal goes full on Jackie Chan in the Trailer for Doug Liman’s ‘Road House’ also starring Conor McGregor lol Just watch where you say that.I think all these other guys who do below average commentaries (that chunky British guy who never got laid and his goofy sidekick come to mind lol) are afraid of the original master to show the them how a real hk commentary is done! The films both look fantastic, with clean, detailed pictures, lovely colours and natural grain structure. Incredibly violent and bloody, In the Line of Duty III has a couple of standout fights – particularly the climax that has Khan going one-on-two with the villains in a factory – and while the film is tightly edited and executed, there’s a sense of coldness to the proceedings that I found to be a little off-putting. It’s not the most insightful of tracks, with Hammond often pointlessly describing the plot we already know after having watched the film, and Wong simply admiring the stunts. Hong Kong was well ahead of the gender equality curve in the eighties, making action movies with kick-ass female leads, decades before Hollywood would get behind the idea.
