Sammo Hung and Karl Maka play cops who 'don't play by the rules' - basically they beat up suspects, informants, witnesses, etc... but they're cops so it's alright, right? Well, the movie world would be a much more sterile place if all the police stuck to the rules anyway. They get caught up in the case of a mean drugs dealer, and his attractive female assistant. Some fairly good humour and good fight scenes make it a pleasant enough late 80's cop thriller, though it shares with several other films of the time some fairly unpleasant treatment of women.
