Beast Cops (1998)
Dante Lam (UNBEATABLE) teams up with Gordon Chan (FIST OF LEGEND) to deliver one of the true classics of golden age Hong Kong crime cinema. The inimitable Anthony Wong (VENGEANCE, INFERNAL AFFAIRS) commands your full attention as hard-boiled police detective Tung. Sure, he’s a dirty cop, Sure he has gambling, drug and alcohol issues. Sure, he’s maybe a little too cozy with the criminal underworld. But damn it, he has a moral compass, and in the streets of this Hong Kong, that makes him a stand-up guy.
Beast Cops basically swept the Kong Kong Film Awards in 1998, winning best film, best director, best actor and best screenplay.
