Billy Wong is a New York City cop whose partner is gunned down during a robbery. Billy and his new partner, Danny Garoni, are working security at a fashion show when a wealthy man’s daughter, Laura Shapiro, is kidnapped. The Federal authorities suspect that Laura’s father is involved with Mr. Ko, a Hong Kong drug kingpin, so the NYC police commissioner sends the two cops to Hong Kong to investigate. Once in Hong Kong, the pair causes no end of trouble for both Mr. Ko and the local authorities. Written by Tad Dibbern

Alternate Versions

The Japanese cut of the film, footage-wise, is virtually identical to the Hong Kong cut. However, the scenes in New York maintain their English dialogue, while the scenes that take place in Hong Kong (which is the bulk of the film) are in Cantonese. The biggest difference is that the Japanese cut is the only version to contain an end credits outtakes montage. This version has been available on laserdisc as well as a 2014 Japanese “Extreme Edition” blu-ray. See more »
