Heat Team (2004)

Summary: I enjoyed the film but,
In sequel to 2001's Hit Team, top Hong Kong director Dante Lam tries to mix police action film with off-beat buddy cop comedy with mixed results. Aaron Kwok seems to be sleepwalking through his fluffy role as a tough cop with a warm fuzzy heart for the ladies. Eason Chen plays, with some gusto, his role of a hard nosed cop who fancies himself as a gigolo with fellow lady police officers. Look for fine performances from the supporting cast members, especially Danny Lee, Victoria Wu and Dave Wong. Action sequences are very explosive and fun to watch. Comedy has several laugh out funny moments but is, for the most part, kind of flat. I must say that I enjoyed the film but, frankly, this director has done better movies.
