HKMS : Tiger Cage II

A series of HK movie synopses regurgitated verbatim from the dvd/vcd/laserdisc cover, in this case the blu ray release.

Donnie Yen Rosamund Kwan

A young lawyer, David, was carrying out a money laundering mission for a Chinatown gangster leader. On his latest assignment carrying a large sum of money to Hong Kong, he was robbed and his assistant murdered. David sought help from his law school buddy, Houston, without knowing that Houston was the one setting up the robbery. To cover up his illegal activities, Houston had to eliminate his law firm partner, Jackie. She was assaulted by Houston's mistress before she could unveil the truth to police inspector Yeng. Tracy, a promising solicitor working for Houston, found herself a scapegoat for the crime committed by her boss. She was framed to be the suspect of Jackie's homicide. To complete the plot Houston dispatched gunmen to go after Tracy's life. She was saved by one of her unwelcome client, Donny. They had to team up together in fighting against Houston and running away from the police. The odd couple developed a memorable friendship as they went through the repeated threat against their lives.

Not as terrible as some other HKMS entries but considering this is from the latest release of the film, it's still pretty bad, and I'm loving the last line in particular. The subtitles on this release are even worse, terrible even by Hong Kong standards.

Thought this wasn't too bad. Hard to beat Tiger Cage 1 though.
