ROYAL WARRIORS is simply one of the best action movies ever made. It features the bone-crunchingly brutal style of Hong Kong choreography that was perfected in the 80's following the renaissance initiated by Sammo Hung and Jackie Chan, and it has rarely looked better than it does in this movie. This is text book action cinema, and Michelle Yeoh is remarkable.

Wow...the martial arts in this movie really surprised me considering how raw and brutal some of the scenes were. Great movie with a great story. For those that don't know, this is the second installment of the In The Line of Duty series...I highly suggest checking out In The Line of Duty IV...but RW is awesome in terms of martial arts, you can expect a really brutal michelle yeoh in this one...story centers around michelle yeoh as a police officer along with a japanese police officer and an annoying security guard who prevents a plane from being hijacked by terrorists for the purpose of freeing a convict. They killed all the terrorists along with the convict, but then the convict's 3 best War buddies plot a revenge on the 3 individuals, and the rest of the movie is about pure survival...there are many dramatic parts in the film, but you'll be rooting for michelle all the way...definitely one of her best...

this movie was really good, the action sequences have a nice flare to them that movies these days seem to lack. yeoh's martial arts skill and preformance make this a pretty enjoyable movie. I think this movie, Yes madam, the tai chi master, and supercop show her in her top martial art preformance.

Typical over-the-top, "nothing suceeds like excess" HK action thriller that works from the first scene to the last. Yeoh plays intrepid RHKPD Inspector Michelle Yip (who evidentally has her own special weapons factory!), who finds herself entangled with deadly terrorists trying to avenge the death of their comrades at her hands. She is aided by a Chinese security expert and a Japanese cop, but it is really her movie.The fights are bone-crushingly brutal, and the action scenes as a whole put similar American fare to shame.Well-directed, slam-bang action!

This is one of Michelle's greatest movies! If you like action, drama and comedy at the same time, you will love Royal Warriors. Henry Sanada(a Japanese Agent)also shines in this movie with some great fighting moves. If you are also a Henry Sanada fan, you should really consider owning this movie. Enjoy guys, you will not regret it!

I seen this movie 10 years ago, when it was on sale and popular among other titles from Tai Seng Video Marketing I use to buy their catalog book it has all the movies they sell etc.
A few years later I watch Yes Madam - Michelle Yeoh and it is way better than this movie - talking about the action not the boring parts. I wish there was an english dubbed version of Yes Madam but its hard to find it.

This movie is a sequel to Yes Madam - aka Police Assassins.

When it comes to ROYAL WARRIORS (a.k.a. IN THE LINE OF DUTY) it most certainly is not about the straightforward plot or about Michael Wong whose nerve-grating character is named... Michael Wong. No, brother, ROYAL WARRIORS is all about the intense high-impact action, and so it's about Michelle Yeoh and it's a little bit about Japanese action star Hiroyuki Sanada. This film, released in Hong Kong in 1986, comes early in Michelle's acting career but, other than that she looks so much younger, you'd never know it. This ex-Miss Malaysia exudes that sort of presence. Her kung fu always could stand up to most men's kung fu. At least in cinema. Never mind that Michelle Yeoh never did have any formal training in the martial arts and that she had to pick things up here and there as she progressed from movie to movie.

The plot to this police thriller isn't what you'd call serpentine. Basically, a Hong Kong police inspector (Yeoh), a Japanese Interpol agent (Sanada), and a vapid sky marshal (Wong) foil an airplane hijacking and, in the process, end up killing the hijackers. But these hijackers have loyal associates (which is sweet and cuddly in a homicidal kind of way), and so the rest of the film finds our three protagonists being tracked and hunted by revenge-minded folks.

Some telltale signs that this movie was made in the 1980s era. There's the cheesy film score, of course. And, in her opening scene, a happy-go-lucky Michelle is wardrobed a bit like Sonny Crockett, although you forget about that once she goes into action, gracefully, cheerfully taking out a bunch of hooligans chasing some ex-gang member.

Points get taken away for that shady-looking "prototype" armored vehicle Michelle finds under some rock for the final showdown.
