Summary: Compelling and enjoyable.

If you are looking for action, see this jewel from now world famous director Yuen Wo-Ping. A second sequel in name only, Tiger Cage III has great martial arts action blended into a police thriller of a different nature. Michael Wong Man-Tak and Cheung Kwok-Leung are Hong Kong detectives that work for the Commercial Crimes Bureau. They look to take down white-collar criminals guilty of financial dirty dealing. There is a lot of gray area in their police work which allows them to benefit financially from insider information, but they still get to fire weapons and kick ass.

Tiger Cage III is really Sharla Cheung Man's movie. Her character is a player in the glamorous world of high finance and big money intrigue. She gets to manipulate every male character drawn in the scenario with her guile and bewitching beauty. Director Yuen is clearly smitten with his leading lady. Every cool action sequence is separated by scenes where the screen is filled with Ms. Cheung. She's even in some of the action scenes which make it all quite compelling and enjoyable.

Tiger Cage III es en realidad la película Sharla Cheung Man. Su personaje es un jugador en el glamoroso mundo de las altas finanzas y la intriga mucho dinero. Ella se pone a manipular a todos los personajes masculinos dibujados en el escenario con su astucia y su belleza cautivadora. Director Yuen está claramente enamorado de su protagonista. Cada secuencia de acción fresca está separado por escenas en las que se llena la pantalla con la Sra. Cheung. Es incluso en algunas de las escenas de acción que hacen todo bastante convincente y agradable.

Summary: Watch this movie for John Cheung's scenes

This is a poorly written and uninteresting 90's HK movie. What I found interesting is that all of John Cheung's action scenes use the old 80's loud kickboxing effects that Jackie Chan and Sammo Hung used in the early to mid 80's and full contact shots, while the rest of the fight scenes that do not include John Cheung have those softer sound 90's fighting sound effects, and the choreography isn't as good as Cheung's scenes. This was done probably because John Cheung wanted to do a tribute to Jackie Chan and the old 80's action choreography, or maybe because Cheung had a falling out with Jackie Chan, and Cheung tried to show Chan how a modern kung fu movie should be shot. Watch this movie for John Cheung's scenes. They are ripping and hard. Besides that, this is a boring movie and the worst in the series. 2/5 for the movie, 4/5 for John Cheung's scenes.

Summary: Not much sense, but plenty of action and drama

Loyalties change at dizzying speed in this wild melodrama, and the already complicated plot quickly becomes hard to summarize. Just suspend total disbelief and enjoy the ride ! At least as good as the first Tiger Cage, and nearly as good as T C II.
