The fact that the complete collection will now be available on Blu-ray in the US is sure to excite fans who have been eagerly waiting for this release. The duo gives us a great relaxed micro-commentary track that includes some great production anecdotes like the entire scene was essentially unscripted/improvised; the heavy amount of rehearsal and much more.

When a posh fashion / jewelry show is sabotaged by a pair of daring freedom fighters (Stuart Ong and Michiko Nishiwaki) who kill scores of bystanders and make off with millions in jewels, a tough cop is murdered, while his partner – Inspector Otaka (Hiroshi Fukioka) – is wounded and takes responsibility for his friend’s death. The third film In the Line of Duty series (and in 88 Films’ respective box set), Brandy Yuen’s and Arthur Wong's In the Line of Duty III, is presented in its original aspect ratio of 1.Films’ epic four-disc set of the In the Line of Duty movies comes in a solid hardback case with a huge fold out poster and a thick booklet with some interviews in it.

When an immigrant dock worker is targeted by the criminals, the officers must protect this innocent man from an international crime syndicate. I’m going to believe someone who knew Logan personally for years and can verify what an abusive bully he is. Working with Detective Constable KatThe comedic moments are often cut by the impactful fast action that Yuen and the stunt teams create for the great set pieces. However, I’m also growing slightly tired of 88Films, Shout, Eureka, and even VinegarSyndrome all putting out their own releases of many of the same titles within short (and getting shorter) periods of time from each other. Alas, I can’t be as enthusiastic about the Cantonese audio, and once again I find myself lamenting the lack of a Home Video remix.

When it turns out the jewels were fake, they embark on a violent rampage to get the money they feel they earned. There is some really well choreographed kung-fu here, set in the kind of present day vernacular that is rough, ready and improvisational, as opposed to the regimented and dance like action that was more common in period kung fu films. Yuen and Yen first worked together on Drunken Tai Chi in 1984 (Yen’s feature debut), then teamed-up for Mismatched Couples (1985) and Tiger Cage (1988), In the Line of Duty IV , Tiger Cage II (co-starring Khan as another character named Inspector Yeung, 1990), Once Upon a Time in China II (directed by Tsui Hark with choreography by Yuen and Yen, 1992), Iron Monkey (arguably the greatest movie either man ever worked on, 1993), and Wing Chun (starring Michelle Yeoh, 1994). This film contains so much Hong Kong style martial art action and there are enough crazy stunts that if you are remotely interested in this kind of film, then this movie would be a very wise purchase.The films both look fantastic, with clean, detailed pictures, lovely colours and natural grain structure. I can always appreciate a good kung-fu action movie, especially one in a contemporary setting, even if I have plenty of nits to pick with the story as I do with In The Line of Duty III. As my synopsis, which is missing an awful lot of detail, might suggest, In the Line of Duty IV is more densely plotted than part III’s simple cops vs criminals affair.

Again, as with the other films, the restoration work has been rather thorough, with no apparent signs of damage remaining, and the encode looks good.

The duo continues their relaxed micro-commentary track that includes being on set during the entire production of the finale which took over 30 days to shoot; the hours and hours it takes to do certain setup/camera shots; her use of weapons during the scene – including a crazy anecdote about her staying on the wall during a specific shot; and much more. Early on the film really plays on the comedy side of things, especially with Yeung trying to make a difference as a police woman, but coming up against the daft bureaucracy of the department, and an uncle who wants to keep her away from all of the action. Watch the Trailer for the Jordan Peele-produced ‘Monkey Man’ directed by and starring Dev Patel Someone's pissed that no one saw Polite Society.
