Beast Cops (1998)
Reviewed by: pjshimmer on 2007-05-02
It's been a few years since I'd watched Beast Cops. Which details pertaining to this great film stick with me the most?

1. Anthony Wong's acting - What a remarkable performer! I especially love the "But I love you" after that long pause.

2. The final sequence - grim and touching at the same time, the value of loyalty within the triad is reinforced.

3. random one liners. "And the turtle is from a turtle restaurant." --> one of my favorites!

4. Michael Wong. I believe this was one of the first films I'd seen with him in, and I'd always heard of his legendary suckage as far as acting goes. Well, I found him quite "lovable" here as a cop ("I became a cop b/c I don't know what I would have become if I didn't become a cop"). This is THE Michael Wong's finest hour, nuff said.

This film is a must-see for HK cinephiles. However, it is not yet a personal favorite.
