衝鋒戰警 (The Constable) (Blu-ray release 2014-1-27) places the familiar cast of the well-received PTU (2003) in yet another movie about the Hong Kong Police Force.  Although I’m not too impressed by the various official follow-ups to PTU, they did have some merits of their own.  However, this movie (probably unrelated to the others) is seriously below the standards of its predecessors.

It comprises of disjointed, short and incomplete or unexplained stories, and spends too much time on a father-son relationship that is irrelevant.  It is incoherent because some parts of the movie tries to be realistic but other parts (such as kung fu fights) are exaggerated.  The final act is a joke, with some characters doing really unreasonable things.  In short, this movie is a total mess.
