"There's many things wrong with this film, as people have said above, but in particular the DVD should be criticised for presenting the film in a terrible dubbed version only. Especially when the women in the film apart from Yeoh sound like California Barbies, and the men speak in this stereotyped Chinese accent. Gag!Plus, a striking lack of features, although I'd be hard pressed to think of what I'd like to have. I haven't seen the original, but with most of Dimension's American releases, they've probably jettisoned the original soundtrack for some USANetwork Action Film schlock.However, that said, there *is* a story here, which they should have focused on more, being the conflict between Yeoh's character and her lover-gone-bad. It would have made the ending tragic, instead of just a relief. Too much time is wasted on puerile "You're a woman, it's too dangerous for you" conversations between the rookie cops and Yeoh. Please.Anyway, bottom line, disappointing and Dimension Films should keep its hands off the original films, or at least allow us the alternative version on the DVD."
Low-kicking non sequel, at least it doesn't continue anythin

"Well I guess michelle is still a cop like she was in the last one, she just isn't funny or good whatsoever in this.
So I read a review that said that this is a michelle film and they are right. What they didn't say is that this is the most boring hong kong flick ever. Not one of them but the most boring and one of the stupidest.
The movie actually starts out really good but when Rongguang Yu leaves michelle to herself, there is a ton of standing around.
Oh yeah the iron monkey is in this, and not even he can save it. i actually think that he could have saved it, but whoever directed this was obviously trying to get into michelle's pants. So obviosly he didn't and he was maybe trying to ruin her career.
I love michelle and could make it through this, but if you liked supercop 1 and are expecting to see something similiar, DO NOT WATCH THIS.
Also jackie is in drag in this movie, his scene last for 2-3 minutes and it is one of the 3-4 bright spots in the movie. JACKIE YOU RULE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"
Good movie done poorly

"Don't let the reviews misguide you, on either account, this was a potentially good movie done horribly wrong. Yeoh is a great figher, and she's just as quick and nimble as Chan, but we are only treated to one real right scene by her? Not only that, but that fight scene is interrupted by her Co-stars less than stellar fight scenes? Is it because she's female? Heck, it got so bad at one point, that it looked like Yeoh was going to be beaten do death (literally) by a hired goon. Why 3 stars? Cause she beats the crap outta the goon in a spectacular manner and does some of her trademark poses afterwards."
Good Hong Kong Action.

"Now I said good--not great! This is a Michelle yeoh film, as the box states, not a Jackie Chan film, JC is in it for a strange 5 minutes. Yeoh is good--some excellent fight scenes, but the dubbing is horrible and the DVD has no option to leave it with subtitles- a big no-no. It's your basic HK action film with a little bit of story that may have worked, but the dubbing & delivery get in the way. I recommend Yeoh in "Wing Chun" for a fun traditional martial arts film."
