Review
After the success of Police Story 3 (Supercop), here comes a spin-off for Michelle Yeoh’s character – Inspector Yang. Michelle Yeoh teams up with Emil Chau and Fan Siu Wong against the formidable Yu Rong Guang (Iron Monkey) and his gang. Overall, this movie is pretty decent with a good mix of fast-paced action sequences with love/drama elements. Look out for Jackie Chan & Eric Tsang cameo appearance in the second half of the movie. Recommended to all Michelle Yeoh fans!
