Wen Zhang, Jet Li and Michelle Chen team up to become an unlikely trio of crime fighters in Badges of Fury
, the hilarious feature film debut by director Wang Zi Ming. In their third pairing, Li and Zhang play a pair of less-than-competent detectives out to solve a series of confounding murder cases, with Chen playing their frustrated boss. A retro love letter to Hong Kong action comedies from the 1980s and 1990s, Badges of Fury
is packed with over-the-top action (including a bicycle chase through the streets of Hong Kong) and silly humor that often defies the laws of physics.
In the tradition of a Hong Kong commercial blockbuster, Badges of Fury is also filled with special cameos by big stars. See if you can catch appearances by Raymond Lam, Michael Tse, Huang Xiaoming, Tong Dawei, Wen Zhang's wife Ma Yili, Leung Ka Yan, Kevin Cheng, Alex Fong, Stephy Tang, Tian Liang, Lo Hoi Pang and many more. Action fans will also get to see Jet stretch his fighting muscles against fellow action stars Wu Jing, Bruce Leung and Colin Chou!
The Hong Kong police are baffled by a series of bizarre murders that leaves its victim dead with a smiling face. Angela (Michelle Chen) is charged with solving the case, but her subordinates are overzealous, troublemaking detective Wang Buer (Wen Zhang) and lazy veteran Huang Feihong (Jet Li). Together, they stumble from various clues and multiple suspects, including up-and-coming actress Jinshui and her seductress half-sister Yiyi. Are the two sisters the culprits behind the murders, or will Buer and Feihong discover more sinister villains lurking in the shadows?
