James and John are working in the Commercial Crime Bureau. Jointly they look into a case of which the suspect is an influential rich business man called Lee. James has a girl friend called Suki who is working for Wong, Lee's accountant. By first sight John has felt that Suki is an insidious opportunist. One night, in a party holding by Lee, John hears by chance the internal tips on a stock that Lee and his staff are talking about. John thus takes out all his saving and buy that stock. In the meantime, since Wong is murdered and James is also assaulted and seriously burnt, the case is closed under great pressure.

At his time, Suki has climbed up to be a senior and important person in Wong's firm. Even Lee becomes a blocking stone in her eyes. Meanwhile, at their great surprise, James and John ...Written by
80's Hong Kong actioner. Most people think the second film in the series is the best, I think that is true but this film delivers some cool action to satisfy fans of the genre.
The plot is ordinary and cringe worthy but stick it out because there is some great martial arts and stuntwork.
The film stars Kwok Leung Cheung who is quite physically capable in this demanding on the body role but hardly a typical leading man. He is given some god awful lines in a painful script. Michale Wong is decent in a supporting role. Sharla Cheung is kinda cute but has an awful character.
Basically the plot gets the protagonist sporting a gold mask because he disfigures his face. He seeks revenge but not before the terrible story chugs along with painful melodrama.
The action scenes are above average. They use some cool techniques like creating blood splatters from impact of certain punches (shot in slow motion). The film brings the martial arts and action to certain settings requiring physical challenge such as a water fountain for a shoot out and work-site scaffolding for some chop socky. The fights are quick, brutal and entertaining. They redeem the picture for sure.
If you like the "In The Line Of DUty" series this film is probably worth checking out.
