Two off-the-wall detectives go in search for a killer, while vying for the affections of a young woman.
This movie is on the same level as many of the better flicks released during the 1980s and 1990s in terms of overall quality and entertainment value (and actually exceeds a good chunk of those films too). Acting, directing, and even scriptwriting are all fine and dandy here. Yet somehow it gets demeaned as being “just okay, considering what we get from Hong Kong lately.” Nonsense. This is a solid flick – period! Where are those rose-colored glasses? Or do you guys only break them out when watching something released before 1995?
I would strongly recommend “Playboy Cops” to anyone who likes quality Hong Kong film-making. Sure, it’s no “Hard Boiled” or “Infernal Affairs”, but it’s well worth watching – and infinitely more entertaining and well-made than “Golden Age” trash like “Ashes of Time.”
