Product Description

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

I don't know what the Editorial Reviewer was watchin', but th' original Cantonese Language track and English subtitles are present on th' disk. Viewers are urged to watch th' Cantonese track w/ subtitles as th' original performances are top-notch, and alot of well-spoken English is present on th' Cantonese track. Why? Because most of th' young stars featured in this film were born/or grew up in the USA, Canada, or Australia! Thus, th' original audio track features some well-spoken, non-butchered English (unlike, say Jackie Chan's dubs) peppered betwixt th' Cantonese dialogue. Th' plot, altho' not spectacular (action films..c'mon), is pretty tight and follows a logical progression from beginning to end. Unlike Mod Squad, or US cop flicks and shows, this cop flick takes place in HK so th' rules and conventions are completely different making this all th' more enjoyable! In other words, you won't find yourself picking nits which is VERY relaxing.
Asian actress/supermodel fans may want to keep their eyes peeled for hot newcomer Jaymee Ong. Half Chinese and half Australian, Jaymee's hot sexy looks accompanied by her lovely Aussie accent'll have you exclaiming,"Tia Carrere, Michelle Yeoh, Sung Hi Lee, Who are They! " in a heartbeat. HK Comedy fans'll dig that Chinese Joe Pesci guy who serves as th' group's mentor. Th' young stars of th' film are fantastic; many of whom are featured in current HK hits like "The Purple Storm", "A Man Called Hero" (also listed on, and "2000 AD." Heck, one guy looks like a Chinese Matthew Lillard if you're into that guy...
Star Wars Episode II fans may want to listen to the head Japanese badguy's well-spoken, sinister English. If th' 20-something yr.

5.0 out of 5 stars gen-X-cops DVD Review: Absolutely Awesome! June 25, 2000
Absolutely awesome! This is how I felt about "Gen-XCops". A story about three rebellious generation-x cops hired toinfiltrate the underworld. I recall several director's discussing about the current situation of HK films and how there is not enough originality and they tend to copy or redo something that was popular on many other films.
Gen-X Cops is different. Police Academy this is not. You get three talented young no-named actors who really kick ass in this film. Notably Nicholas Tse who plays the character of Jack. In the featurette included in the DVD, Jackie Chan even gives respect to the man because he also does his own stunts. There is one scene where he comes out of a swimming pool with gasoline on top of the pool on fire and he emerges out of the pool. These are just a few scenes that you see Nicholas Tse do. Pretty boy? This guy is not afraid to take on risks and this person is definitely a rising star to keep your eye on.
One of the things that makes this movie rock is the dedication of the director Benny Chan (Big Bullet, Who am I?). Although he admits that it was difficult to film the movie because the three gen-x actors loved to play around the set and are loud, he knew that was the chemistry that made these guys click and the way the movie turned out, he definitely clicked with them.
Sam Lee who plays the character of Alien is so weird and very funny, you can't help but like his character. Then there is the "playboy" Stephen Fung who plays the character of Match. According to Tse, a person playing himself...a playboy. These guys get along so well and are a perfect click which makes this movie even more enjoyable. One scene has the three friends outrunning blasts in a building. A scene that they can only shoot once with no mistakes.

3.0 out of 5 stars Routine blockbuster showcases new HK talent July 7, 2004
[Te Jing Xin Ren Lei]

(Hong Kong - 1999)

Aspect ratio: 2.39:1 (Anamorphic)
Theatrical soundtrack: Dolby Digital

Jackie Chan co-produced this routine blockbuster as a showcase for some of Hong Kong's hottest new teen stars, including Nicholas Tse Ting-fung, Stephen Fung Tak-lun, Daniel Wu Yin-cho and comic relief Sam Lee Chan-sam. The convoluted storyline posits Tse, Fung and Lee as a trio of rebellious young cops, recruited as undercover agents by police commander Eric Tsang Chi-wai to investigate the shady business dealings between low-level Triad underling Wu and a Japanese crime lord (Toru Nakamura) who has seized a shipment of deadly explosives for nefarious purposes, prompting a sequence of betrayals and counter-betrayals amongst members of the opposing criminal factions, until events reach an explosive climax during a showdown at the newly-opened Hong Kong Convention Center.

Veteran director Benny Chan Muk-sing (A MOMENT OF ROMANCE, NEW POLICE STORY) marshals proceedings into a cohesive whole, though the movie fizzles badly after a dynamic opening sequence before rallying again somewhere around the halfway mark. The action scenes are staged and executed with all the breathless abandon one expects from HK cinema, but many of them unfold so quickly, it's often difficult to know who's doing what to whom, or even why, and crucial plot points are sometimes lost along the way. Few of the actors emerge with any credit, though Nakamura is admirably solemn as an English-speaking Japanese villain who clings to old-fashioned notions of truth and righteousness in a world where such virtues no longer have currency.
