No connection to Thundercops 1
The first Thundercops was a supernatural spoof...cops vs ghosts. Sandra Ng is the only tie between the two movies, but as a different character. Whereas one was a comedy, two is deadly serious. At least the first half is. Fortunately, the appearance of Stephen Chow in the second half is just what this film needed. His character and witty performance save this movie from it's nose dive into mediocrity.
Sandra Ng comes on the scene as a meter maid and puts herself into an ongoing stakeout....crime....bust with disastrous results. To make amends and seek revenge she joins the regular police force. Sadly her character lacks an ounce of common sense, as her costars disappear faster than their names appear on the credits.
There are some very good fight scenes. One involving Sandra Ng's partner was quite enjoyable. Stephen Chow is the brother of one of Sandra Ng's targets. While not ranked with the better HK cop movies, I'd recommend it.
