Long Arm of the Law Movies Online Streaming Guide
Long Arm of the Law (省港旗兵, “Guangdong and Hong Kong Criminals”) is a 1984 Hong Kong film directed by Johnny Mak. The film was followed by two sequels: Long Arm of the Law II (1987) and Long Arm of the Law III (1989).
Long Arm of the LawJuly 11, 1984
A group of desperate Chinese criminals hope to make a quick, effortless score in Hong Kong. Things go afoul, and the gang must hide out until the heat dies down, besmirched with the blood of an undercover cop.
Long Arm of the Law IIAugust 29, 1987
This sequel to the critically-acclaimed box-office winner Long Arm of the Law maintains the same stark realism of the original. In Saga Two, the Royal Hong Kong Police put into operation a new plan to counteract the problem of increasing violent crimes committed by new arrivals from across the border in China. In agreement with Chinese authorities, three Hong Kong detectives go undercover as illegal immigrants in order to infiltrate the powerful gang that is organizing the crime wave. The action is tough and graphic, reminiscent of The French Connection, Hong Kong style.
Long Arm of the Law IIIJanuary 12, 1989
Michal Mak’s second sequel to his brother’s action classic finds an ex-soldier/escaped death row prisoner fleeing to Hong Kong and forced to work for a gang of criminals when they kidnap the woman he loves.
Long Arm of the Law IV: Underground ExpressJune 5, 1990
The final entry in Michael and Johnny Mak’s Long Arm of the Law series, Underground Express once again tells a story of gangsters versus police, focusing on the difference between how both factions act depending if they’re coming from Hong Kong or Mainland China. There’s some decent action that delivers a high body count, but the rushed production and editing that was obviously and clumsily done to avoid a Category III rating regulates this to being just another average Hong Kong cops and robbers flick.
