Long Arm of the Law(1984)

1h 40min | Action, Crime
3.3/5 (with 8 votes)

An ultra-violent and ultra-gritty tale of desperate Chinese would-be jewel thieves hoping to make a quick, effortless score in Hong Kong. Naturally, things go afoul, and the gang must hide out until the heat dies down, besmirched with the blood of an undercover cop.

Directed by Johnny Mak

Long Arm of the Law II(1987)

1h 28min | Action, Crime
3.5/5 (with 3 votes)

This sequel to the critically-acclaimed box-office winner Long Arm of the Law maintains the same stark realism of the original. In Saga Two, the Royal Hong Kong Police put into operation a new plan to counteract the problem of increasing violent crimes committed by new arrivals from across the border in China. In agreement with Chinese authorities, three Hong Kong detectives go undercover as illegal immigrants in order to infiltrate the powerful gang that is organizing the crime wave. The action is tough and graphic, reminiscent of The French Connection, Hong Kong style.

Directed by Michael Mak

Long Arm of the Law III(1989)

1h 40min | Action, Crime

Michal Mak's second sequel to his brother's action classic finds an ex-soldier/escaped death row prisoner fleeing to Hong Kong and forced to work for a gang of criminals when they kidnap the woman he loves.

Directed by Michael Mak - With Andy Lau, Max Mok, Elvis Tsui

Long Arm of the Law IV: Underground Express(1990)

1h 40min | Action, Crime
5.0/5 (with 1 vote)

The final entry in Michael and Johnny Mak's Long Arm of the Law series, Underground Express once again tells a story of gangsters versus police, focusing on the difference between how both factions act depending if they're coming from Hong Kong or Mainland China. There's some decent action that delivers a high body count, but the rushed production and editing that was obviously and clumsily done to avoid a Category III rating regulates this to being just another average Hong Kong cops and robbers flick.
