Product Description

When a series of eerie murders erupt across Hong Kong, two trouble making cops are assigned to the case. Young maverick WANG (Zhang Wen) is a reckless risk-taker, and grizzled vet HUANG (Jet Li) is fed up with cleaning up his rookie's messes. After discovering all the victims were former boyfriends of aspiring starlet LIU, the detectives (one now posing as her lover) are caught in a deadly game to lure the killer out.

3.0 out of 5 stars ok for a laugh and some decent action scenes January 7, 2014
Format:Blu-ray
This isn't a typical Jet Li action fighting movie. There are some fighting scenes with Jet BUT the overall of the movie is comedy action with lots (i mean lots) of rope pulling over the top fake comedy. (if you've seen Stephen Chow movies like 'Kung Fu' hustle then this movie is similar to it.

From the trailers i thought it was another real typical Jet Li movie and knowing the recent news of him being sick and can't make anymore action movie, i wanted to get this for the collection. Majority of the movies is based on his partner rush to solve the crime and edgy funny fighting story so be prepared for that.

it is a good laughing movie and both my wife and I enjoyed it.

2.0 out of 5 stars Very silly January 13, 2014
Format:Blu-ray
Goofy Hong Kong action comedy about police investigating a series of strange murders, men who were all ex-boyfriends of the same actress and who all died in seemingly accidental ways where the police can't figure out how the men were killed. This is extremely silly along the lines of early Stephen Chiau or Jackie Chan's Wong Jing movie City Hunter. The fight scenes, strangely, seem to be heavily influenced by Scott Pilgrim Vs the World--characters hover or spin in mid-air like they are inhabiting a video game or cartoon rather than the real world. Jet Li isn't really known for his comedy chops so he has very little to do in this other than a couple of action scenes. This type of comedy appealed to me more when I was younger and first got into Hong Kong films--now it just seems a lot more silly than funny but if you like very broad Hong Kong comedies you might enjoy this. Jet Li fans looking for an action film should stay far, far away.

4.0 out of 5 stars WANG IS NOT A STUPID NAME January 19, 2014
Format:Amazon Instant Video
It appears China has entered the comedy spoof genre with two cops named Wang and Huang, whose English meaning they appear to be aware. The cops are after the smiley face murderer. Huang (Jet Li) is the seasoned policeman while Wang (Zhang Wen) is the rookie. The comedy was all over the place. Some of the comedy was slapstick; sometimes cartoon noises; sometime it was "Airplane" style humor: sometime it was movie spoof. They are capable at laughing at themselves by creating overt anti-gravity fighting. In one scene they come to congratulate the officers for arresting someone who pirated a movie, a serious crime in China, he said with a wink and then flashes an MIB style camera.

Too much of the film is silliness that didn't translate well into western humor. I thought it was a good effort on the part of Chinese film makers and a step in the right direction. 3 1/2 stars.

3.0 out of 5 stars Old school and new school meet slapstick comedy January 8, 2014
Format:Blu-ray
"Badges of Fury" kicks off 2014 with one of the most awkward film openings any particular year could ever ask for. After three men die with smiles on their faces, the opening credits jump to Wang and Huang with their backs to each other on a rooftop. A shot is fired from the gun Wang is holding and the rest of the cast appears as flying horizontal bullets. The absurdity only grows from there as the opening sequence of the film involves Wang being undercover at a Scottish party while wearing a kilt who is then mocked by homosexual men for butchering fashion. Huang is shown dressed as a chef and playing cards in the kitchen. The film has this very loose storyline it is barely able to follow in its short 98-minute duration, but the Hong Kong action film mostly seems extremely spontaneous and impulsive not unlike the behavior of Wang Bu Er in the film.

The action in the film is all over the place. Grown men jump several stories into the air, walk on walls, and even run on the shoulders of innocent people. Fists punch through cement blocks, missed kicks crack the ground the fighters stand on, and individuals are thrown through cars and windows only to get up without a scratch on them. The perspective, specifically in the opening sequence when Huang battles the wanted criminal Chen Hu (Collin Chou), is quite impressive. Taking place on a staircase, Huang jumps down several flights of stairs as the camera follows him; seemingly allowing the viewer to fly down flights of stairs right along with Jet Li.

The comedy of the film is just as chaotic as the action of the film as it seems to jump back and forth between pop culture references to well-known martial arts films.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Humor April 21, 2014
Format:Blu-ray
Not sure why so many bad reviews, this was one great funny movie. Yes, the trailer makes it look like another typical jet li martial arts film, but it is anything but a typical jet li film. And that is half the fun, the action is a more over the top, but still well done and innovative. For a person who's never done kung fu, the actor who played the young cop did a good job. The story plot is easy to follow, but i seriously doubt that you would be able to guess the bad guy(s) before the movie is 80% over. The girls are cute and play there roles nicely for a foreign film (do not expect them to be like american female comedians). Yes, the dialog may be a little corny, but again, this is not an american film, you should know what you are going to get. If you want a good laugh, while still getting a lot of martial arts action ... this one is for you.

This was the worst Jet Li film ever made. I'm so surprised that he aligned himself with such a terrible script.

2.0 out of 5 stars Action Comedy ??
I expected an action movie, especially with Jet Li in the cast. What it is is a movie with some action in it (not so well staged) and some pretty silly comedy.

Big waste of time I could have had a V8 instead of watching this silly movie. It just did not make any sense to me.

2.0 out of 5 stars Lame comedy marketed as an action movie
The trailer and the synopsis on the box make this movie sound like a action packed cop thriller, but it's actually a comedy, and a really goofy one at that. Read more
