Direct from the action capital of the world comes GEN-X COPS, rocket-fueled drama at its most arresting! Hong Kong police crack an underground ring of smugglers, seizing a massive shipment of explosives. But when the arms are recovered by Japan's public enemy number one, Akatura, the countdown begins to a sale of the deadly contraband that will place the world in the hands of international mercenaries! But when a rebellious trio of GEN-X COPS infiltrate the underworld, they discover that Akatura has a much more sinister plan for the volatile cargo than fueling worldwide warfare. Now the criminal instincts that nearly barred them from the force are the most powerful weapons the GEN-X COPS have to save the city from the devastating act of terrorism!
This is what The Mod Squad wanted to be. Chan (Eric Tsang), a cop on the fringe of the force, assembles a team of loose-cannon cadets--the Gen-X Cops--to infiltrate the mobs of Hong Kong, and they find a stolen shipment of explosive rocket fuel. Dressed in skin-tight leather and vinyl, hip to the point of being ridiculous, our heroes (named Jack, Alien, and Match) have to fight not only ultraviolent criminals but also hostile factions within the police as they track down a supercool Japanese gangster with no fear of death. The clichés fly fast and thick, and the plot is at times incomprehensible, but the action is pretty much nonstop. A shootout in a surfboard factory is particularly spectacular but is only one of several rapidly edited, stunt-filled sequences. The dubbing is better than usual (though subtitles would still be preferable), and there's some unfortunate homophobia, but the actors are all good-looking, the rock soundtrack is loud, the colors are bright, and the attitude is intense. Gen-X Cops even features a cameo by Jackie Chan, who's somehow involved with presenting the film. A slick, silly, and very entertaining movie. --Bret Fetzer
Great action and comedy in this one. I've had the VHS version for many years and was so glad to find the DVD here on Amazon!Published 8 months ago by Lisa
I swear I remembered it alot funnier and more action. I finally bought it and It was quite bland. I guess it was one of those nostalgias that should've stayed just a memory.Published 19 months ago by K
I love this movie. Subtitles are not my favorite but there are some parts where they speak English. Funny and exciting.Published 23 months ago by Gee Geronimo

There's action, suspense, and it's even sad when the Lieutenant dies, more like bittersweet. I have to watch this movie in the English Dub because I can't follow the subtitles that... Read morePublished on May 1, 2007 by Hillarie Norrie

I rented this on blockbuster and this has got to be the WORST movie I have seen all of 2005. Watching this movie reminded me of why I should stay away from Hong Kong movies. Read morePublished on January 16, 2005 by Fantasy Reader
