Much darker than the past PoliceStory movies, and indeed one of the darker movies by Chan in general. Much lower in terms of slapstick and the fights, while very well choreographed, lack many of Chan's [[InterestingSituationDuel signature]] [[ImprovisedWeapon elements]], shooting instead for more straightforward, well-done action.

* CopKiller: Chan Kwok Wing hunts down a group of heavily armed robbers who don't give a second thought about gunning down police officers. The main bad guy, Joe, is motivated to do this [[spoiler:because he was physically abused as a child by his police officer father, who had gained a high-ranking position by the time the movie begins.]]
