China Strike Force (2000) - full transcript

A young Chinese Security Officer, Darren, is called for Team 808, which fights against the smuggling of drugs and corruption. Noriko, a Japanese Interpol officer, collaborates with Darren for the destruction of a large international drug cartel. At the same time, a senior government officer's daughter is suspected of corruption.

Damn it, Darren, look at me!

You know something Alex?
I like your hair that color

Yeah? Right?


Do any of you even care that
the hostage was endangered?

You were brilliant, Alex

Great surveillance

teamwork, improvisation...

And handle unexpected issues

But at the end, you lost your focus

What is your mission?

The mission was to save the hostage...

And not for you to end up a dead hero

I'm just trying to save my partner

Did you need his help?


but... I appreciate it

Shut up!

Listen! And listen good

The Government pays me to
train you guys

not to go to your funerals

Now I want you both to go home
and study

what happened and what didn't happen
today carefully

Because tomorrow we're going to
do it again

If anyone makes the same mistake

And I can assure you

if you're hoping to spend your future
in this organization, it'd better work!

Now, get out of here!

How much longer?

About 2 hours...

Good... We'll be early

Roadblock ahead, be careful

What happened, officer?

Car skidded, lost control, waiting for
the ambulance

It's been bad all night, we've been
driving for 6 hours...

Drive slowly

Okay! Thank you! Good night

Hey, stop!

We need some medical supplies

Sorry! We're empty

You must have something that can help...

Iike bandages, antibiotics...

The guy has multiple fractures

We don't have a thing
we're completely out

What about the first-aid kit?

Come on, let's open it up!

I thought you said you were empty!

Yes, we have no medical supplies



No witnesses

Would you help me with this?


I do that only when a beautiful woman
is close by...

There, shame on you

Norika, when do you go back to Tokyo?

In 4 days


to the successful conclusion of
our business


to the most smart and beautiful negotiator

Thank you!

You have all the information we need?

She has given us everything


Put it in your safe



Hi, Tony

This is my friend, Norika, from Japan

A pleasure

I've invited her to join us

Uncle Ma, may I speak with you
for a moment?

Are you forgetting yourself?
We have a guest

That's alright. I'd like to freshen up

Now speak!

A friend of mine from America is in town

I'd like the two of you to meet

To what purpose?

He's merchandise to sell


Electronics? Knock offs? Tobacco?



The drug business is not for us

Not in the past, not now, not ever

Respectfully, Uncle Ma, drugs are
the richest commodity in the world

and China, is an untapped market

We can make a fortune

You are wasting my time...

Uncle Ma...

That's enough

To save face, I will meet your friend
I'd tell him...

how sometimes your mind gets confused

And you forget what I tell you!



Congratulation! Thanks

Congratulation! Thanks!

Darren, she is Jennifer

Jeniffer, he is Darren

Nice to meet you

Hello! Hello!

I think it's my time now

See you then. See you!

Move forward



Thank what? You work hard for it!

There are so many girls who work hard

But I have a really good father


Sheriff Lin, welcome to Shanghai!

Alex, I am now under your power

Please watch behind me

No problem. You are my colleague, Darren

Sheriff, hi! Hi!

You go up and look around. I have to work

You two please follow me

Alex, I think I better stay here



Hurry up!

I am trying my best

Let's go!

I like this color

I like it too

Forget it, Darren. She don't match with you

You match better

Ruby's design is not bad

Hope that she won't dress like that

Ruby is great

Please call the ambulance! Quick!

Protect them!

I am the police. Everyone please
calm down

Excuse me! Excuse me!

Where is the ambulance? Hurry up!


What's wrong?

What the hell?


I am the police. I need to use your car

So what if you are the police?

Don't make any stupid move!
This car is mine!

I have followed the suspect to
Pu Dong Hotel

I need back up

It's so pretty. Yes!

Which room is that lady who just walked
into the lift staying?

Sorry, we cannot disclose guest's

I am the police. She is a suspect

Calling Control. Please tell me

where is the lady in lift no.7 going?

Stop the car... Stop the car!!





Stop her


Take it easy, honey

Shopping is over

Let's go!

Hang on baby

I'll be back

Pull me up!

No problem. Just come to my office

What can I do for you?

Our first mission is coming to Lung Cheng

And we hope Sheriff Lin can help us to
investigate a case

That's good

It's a chance to see how good is
my daughter's choice

We want to find some clue

for that murder case happened at
Shanghai Fashion Show

Why do you two come to Lung Cheng?

We want to ask Mr. Ma Man Ho
for investigation

There may be no one knows Mr. Ma
in Shanghai

But he is a really important person here

Sheriff Lin, do you think it's appropriate
to find him?

How about if I show you two around first?

I still have no clue

Someone has killed my brother-in-law

and try to upset me

But you can't find out who did it

Do you think I can take that?


You have to find out who did that

I don't care how you do it, or how much
you spend!

Do you understand?

I got it!

That's fine

Master, someone is here for you


The police may have find something


Mr. Ma. Nice to meet you

Thank you for your time to see us

Sheriff Lin, what can I do for you?

He is Alex Cheung and the other one is
Darren Tong

They are from Shanghai Police Dept

They have a few questions for you

I am waiting for you to give me answers

But not to ask me question

Young man, what do you want to know?

Your brother-in-law was killed at the
Shanghai Fashion Show

and we want to know....

I also want to know who did that



Did he have any enemy?


Please leave

Who is the girl you were with on that day?

Sheriff, I don't think that you bring them
here for a question like this...

I think you must have come out from
the academy

Do you think you can find the truth
with your method like this?

Sheriff, please leave with them now

This time should let you feel

how difficult it would be for investigating
this case

I think there is nothing wrong for
our questions

He must be hiding something

I think this time we have wasted our effort

You write the report

Seems like this murder

is related to their illegal activities

You have their inside information

I have a reliable source

And he told me that Mr. Ma has a
bootlegging to Lung Cheng Pier

We may find some clue from this

Can we go with you?

You better shut up first

We've got some special commodity
for you

A Lambo, man

A what?

A Lamborghini!

Now you see? The ltalians only know
how to make a Lambo and spaghetti

The rest are opera singers and gangsters

Thanks, partner, I'll just go there and drive
it back myself

I don't know, might be a little crowded

I'll alert the police myself

Tony, I tell you

You know I'd love China

I eat takeout twice a week, you know that?

Egg rolls, Chow Mein, Chop-shui
Fortune cookies, all that shit...

This country is like a big ass buffet to me

Yes, it's going to be very profitable

We came a long way from bustling pussy
and selling dime bag

You know what I'm saying?

This is our time, man

Tony, I know you remember this man

My friend from the fashion show

You did well

You said someone good who nobody

my man Lee here, he's my own personal
bodyguard in LA

I should go

Go! Fool. What's keeping you?

My bread...

Oh yeah, you want bread?


See a baker!

Was that necessary?

Job's over!

The dude wanted to see China, he saw it

And now, I'm sending him home by water


Hurry up! The truck is waiting


Seems like everything is fine

Sheriff Lin has arranged everything

Have you done the report yet?

What should I write?

That's true

Boss, all your stocks are here

They are over there

This car is so pretty

Looks like there is a situation

Let's go

Go and block all the exits

Let's go!


Don't move! Lay down!

Are you okay?

I am fine

I'm a police officer, pull over your car

What should I do?

Pull him down from the car

Smash him! Don't let him get to the front

Where is he?

How do you drive? Come down!

What's wrong? It's not my fault

That's car just came at us

Want to fight?

Stop! Don't fight!

Don't argue! You all come to
the police station

Lucky me!

How are you? Are you okay?


Those stocks have nothing to do
with my company

The Government has placed

the order to stop all smuggling activities

Today is just a start

And we will get the evidence against
you very soon

But my workers are innocent

They don't even know where those
stocks come from

I hope that you can release them

My company can guarantee

Please bring your people and leave

Tell your boss to stop giving me troubles

I know

How dare you disobey me!

It will never happen again

You go behind my back?

I'm sorry, I should have come to you...


The girl has gone...

you cost me lose much business with
the Japanese

The consequences...

will be severe. Do you understand me?

Tony, because you are the last male
of our family

I will overlook this one time

Tony, in our business, one must be
loyal to the end


it's fatal

I may get used to this shit baby

In fact, when I go back to South Central

You know what this is, one of those
Pomerol of 89

nothing but the best, baby

I'm surprised they had it

Not them

Shit, I brought this

Saves sucking down that Sake drinking

Sake's Japanese...

Man, I don't care about geography

When them catch up with the frogs
you let me know

Cause that's the only thing those faggots
are good for anyway

Now that my brother, it's the real deal

Iike holy deal...

What the hell are you doing?

I always drink my wine like this

Man, this wine costs $1 5,000 a bottle!

I'll send you a case

That's why I love you

You're an animal pal!


Thanks! You are welcome

Oh, when will you take that action?

What action?

Proposal of marriage

Tonight! You'll see

Have you given her a magnifying glass?


You are so lucky

In fact I am really lucky

I grew up in an orphanage

No one has cared about me

And now I have her after overcoming all

I want to marry her earlier

And have a complete family

I want to have many children

Many children?


Then go to workout now


I am afraid you will ask me for help
when you cannot stand any longer

Damn you!



All the cargoes are checked?

All checked. Only the normal stuff...

TV games, computer stuff...

And there are several old cars

Why do they smuggle used cars?

May be someone would like it

You're about to make the biggest score
Genghis Khan

You know what I'm saying? It's time to
celebrate baby, not reach for the Prozae

I won't relax till the goods are moving

Well, lay your mind to rest baby, cause
in a few hours

Our ship's coming in, like the Queen Mary

What if the light doesn't go off?

Tony... Iook, it's like this

There's always some fool rookie cop
who thinks he's smelled something

and his fool rookie mind gets to
cogitate this shit...

You know what? They always say
the same damn thing

I figure it out

I figure it out

What do you know?

There must be something inside the cars

Won't you feel you have thought
too much?

Let's check that out!

Do I have an important appointment?

I forgot

I go with you tomorrow

You go and rest

And also, wish me good luck


I better call Ruby and tell her to get away

I'll do lt


Just leave it! Don't pick it up!



Okay... okay... I will come now

One hour

Okay... okay... okay... 20 minutes then

One hundred kilograms. It worths

4 million dollars?

I think not even close

This time you really are something

How could it be like that?

What happened?

For thirty years, no drug has ever come
into Lung Sheng

You mean no one has ever got caught?

Ma definitely would not do the drugs

Now there are only two possibilities :

If these drugs are not smuggled in under
Ma's approval

then that means Ma cannot control
his people anymore

But if these are arranged by Ma

then we have to eliminate them all

Do you have any evidence for putting
charges on him?

We still haven't got enough evidence

We should wait until the right time to
arrest them

Then we just wait here

I think it wouldn't take long

Nice to meet you

No drug has ever come into Lung Sheng?

How about the other smugglings?

Sheriff Lin is too familiar to
their background

Yes, really familiar

Then why doesn't he arrest them?

I can't get used to this shit, baby

I've got it, Tony

The Chinese are real shrewd and
devious people

but you are the best, baby

You made me one of the best

No one can touch me...

Unless I want to be touched

Chong's record, listing everyone on
Ma's payroll

How did you get this?

Chong's room, after he was killed

No body saw you?

If they did, would I be here now?

That's a good question. Why are you here?

I represent investors who might be
interested in helping you develop


Hey girl, this isn't stock exchange

We ain't trading any futures here

You want to bone the bitch, do it
after hours

And you, you talk the talk and you walk
the walk, in all a good shit

But you could be Chairman Mao
for all I know

Ma checked her out, she's clean

It's damn right

well you best slow your role, partner

Cause I get nervous about this shit

You won't want to see me nervous

I'll vouch for her

Don't try to play me

Even the bitch makes your dick hard
don't make her nothing

How do I know she's not a cop?

How do I know she isn't wired right now?

You won't listen

I say it... one time

I vouch for her

Having fun, guys

Let's do it an easy way

See any wire?

I think you'd better sit down

This is my cell phone number

What about your address?

Call me any time

You know why the bitch didn't give
you her address?

She probably got some rich Japs
keeping her

She come up with something better like
you damn ass

I can't get used to this shit, baby

I'm telling you baby, this is beautiful

We ain't got anything like this
in South Central

Do you garden?

No, you know... to me, flowers are like
beautiful women

They're good to look at, but for
my personal pleasure

but they don't last long

It is a hard work, like all good
things in life

It took many years to put our
organizations together

One bad seed can destroy everything

Listen to me!

I understand. Tony explained
my position to you

Yes, but...

You ignore it

No disrespect...

I'm just a businessman

trying to grow revenues

I wish you have a big big success

But not in China

Take a flight, go home

So that's it? Man. Just like that?
Shutting us down? Just like that?

Have patience...

Have patience? Doctors have patients!

and I ain't moving to China

It will take just a little time...

A little time?

Tony, I saw that old man manicuring that

Those kind of guys, they don't smoke
they don't drink, they don't do nothing

So if you're waiting for him to check out
you can forget that's shit

Like a fact, he's gonna live longer than
the two of us put together

We can speed up the process



What were you doing at Ma's house?

I was meeting a friend


He never showed up so it doesn't matter

And you were so angry

You killed him

That's stupid!

Even for you!

You had his blood on your hands

I was turning the body over

C'mon lady you can do better than that

You've got problems

Big ones!

Doesn't everyone?

You're too cool


Just being close to you makes me feel
so good all over

That's the first honest thing you've said

My God! Darren...


Button up your blouse

Will it help you?

Yes... no...

It helps him...


I figure it out

You're a cop

Come on! Give me a break, Darren

Just meet her when she gets out of jail

Run her prints through the computer

Starting with Japan

He's right. I'm with Japanese lnterpol

Just call me Arnold

What's Japanese lnterpol doing in China?

One of our agents was murdered
in California

By Coolio?


Okay, we'll get you released through
a lawyer

Make it look real

Do you understand me?

Oh, I understand you, very well

Cut the goddamn foreplay

I'm really getting stressed on here



Oh, my leg...

Hold on...

Lie down first

Try to relax. I'll fix it for you, okay?

Is that here?


Getting better?


Don't stop!


Don't stop!

It's starting to feel so good all over...

I've been thinking about you since
the first moment I saw you



The lawyer we got you will be here

in the morning


Remember, when you leave, you're
supposed to hate us

That's easy

I hope you don't think I'm too rough
on you today

I don't think of you, period

Thanks anyhow


We can track you anywhere

I want to bring Coolio back to Tokyo...
By myself

What did he do to you?

Not me

My partner

Coolio killed him... three years ago

I'm sorry!

I'll help you any way I can

Good night!

Hey good-looking...

Good night!

You're fighting faster and better
since Ma's death

He was an old fool

now, we will be feared in all of Asia

You're okay?

I'm okay

Do not trust the black guy

He... He is dangerous

He's an old friend

Besides, he is in our territory now

If anyone should worry...

It's him

Let's go!


Do you all believe her?

I think I know her pretty well

Please do not make any decision

Don't under estimate women
especially the pretty ones

When have you met a beautiful cop
like her?

Man. I can't get used to this shit
It's a real shit!

Ma bought it back in 1 950...

people offered him millions

to build a hotel and shopping center...

but no, he wouldn't

He remembered the movies they made here
when he was a kid, a thousand years ago!

I saw one about the Zing Dynasty, right

It's about thousands of fools hacking each
other to death with swords...

kind like a western

with no gun and no horse...

What the hell is this place?

It kind a remind me the Golden Nugget
in Las Vegas!

The great hall...

Kings used it to present
ceremonial purposes

Man, someone was pretty important or
they had a big old ass

It's the emperors' chair

Ma liked to use it when he was doing

He claimed it made him more powerful


I get into that mystical type of shit
you know what I'm saying?

Kind of like ouija board and shit

I want to know who set me up, and why!

Be cool when you're talking to the
emperor, home girl. I did it

Baby, I'm just running a last minute
security check on you...

And guess what?

You passed!

I'm getting tired of all the shit!

Stop your bitching! Besides I was wrong
about you

So you still want to do business or not?



We're bringing you six hundred K in the
first load

If you are in, and how much?

As much as we can get

Please don't! Please...

I swear that I did not do this

But how can the stocks come in without
your permission?

Whose drugs are those? Ma's?

I don't know

Lau's? Or Coolio's?

I would have told you if I know.

You don't tell me because you are afraid
of them, aren't you?

Say it! Whose stocks are those?

In the years, I have not lied to you

And this time, I really have no idea

Ruby, come on, open the door quickly

Here he is

Are you okay? What happened?

Shit! We are in deep trouble


Come with me

Happy birthday!

You are so great! I almost forgot!


Blow the candles and make a wish first!

What wish?

I wish we could have many children after
get married


Five to six

Five to six?

Wait... don't come over...

Come on! It's okay...

No, you are so naughty!

Don't fool around. Okay

You sit over there, and let me get a piece
of cake for you


You still wear these socks even with
a hole?


Let me fix this up for you

This is much better

How do you feel about my dad?

I have learned a lot from him

Both good and bad things

What do you mean?

I am thinking that being a senior police
officer like your dad

cannot be always that righteous

Sometimes he may have to go easy on

My dad is the most righteous person

I don't mean he is not

But he actually knows about the smuggling
issue in Lung Cheng pretty well

Then why he hasn't arrested them
for these years?

And also

they seem to have a good relationship

What are you talking about?

You mean he is corrupted?

I don't mean that

I just suspect that...

Suspect? How can you suspect my dad?

He is the most righteous person I have
ever seen

You don't have to say anything. Please go

Are you serious?

Get up! Go!

I said Go!

I can repair my own socks!

I couldn't get you in as a foreigner

So I said you're an ambassador from an
African country, Zimbabwe...

Do I sound like I come from Zimbabwe?

Don't worry, no one knows what you are
saying anyway

Man. Whatever works...

Welcome sir

Thank you! Moments coming brother...

My admiral outs on that tanker's just
waiting for my call

to start rolling our dope into the pipeline

What I need to know is where we
picking it up?

Each ball's tracked on screen

and steered offline to a small
pumping station...

Safe, sounds and undetected

How fast?

From ship to shore

four minutes and twenty seconds...

That's supersonic, baby

It's a perfect system

You brother, you believe I never
graduated college?

Man, I'm starting to dig international
co-ventures, multi-national

you know what I'm saying?

I might start putting this to Mexicans
the Spics and the waps

You know

I always think black people only sing
and dance and play basketball

But you're pretty smart, even for one
of them


How many?

One hundred


You don't see that, sir

650 kilo times 22 that's 1 4 million
300 thousand

COD, cash on delivery, baby

Next week, I'm gonna buy me

one of those 3 PCs suits at
Brooks Brothers

And go to Switzerland and visit my money

Complete the transaction

Hi! Willie is cool! What's up?

How much?

No, my friend it's 1 4 million
three hundred thousand

Don't forget the three hundred, Willie

Dad, come and takes a seat
I make tea for you

No, I am fine

Come. I have something to talk to you

What's the matter?

I am going to retire


Let's leave China

We can go to Milan, Paris, New York...

I think you will have a better future
with your talent

But my development in China is also
not bad

If we go, we have to start everything all
over again

And this takes a lot of money and time

I have a lot of money now

But not much time left

Dad, what happened?

I have been a police for 30 years

When your mum still alive

I have never planned for her

Before she died

I have promised her

that I would give the best life to you

But I was only a small potato at that time

And I could not afford to support you for
education aboard

But my life has been very good so far

And those money...

All the expenses that you have spent

were supported by one of my friends
named Ma

The condition for this offer is to provide
him information

Dad, don't you know that this is

I am sorry!

But I had no choice at that time

But I am now regret to this

You can tell the truth now

If I do this, I will never see you again

So we have to leave China

As soon as possible

But I am now with Alex...

You cannot let Alex know about this

You better get prepared now

I still have one more thing to do

I will come and pick you up when I finish


Be a nice girl please

Norika is suspecting that they have
already loaded the smuggling

The cake is in the refrigerator
and it is still nice to eat

I am sorry. I have misunderstood you

I love you

We have to go

But we'll come back soon



It's not the time for exhibition yet

Coolio, this is a surprise for you. Coolio
what do you think?

Tony, you are a man of impecable taste!

That's I'm thinking about, baby

You know what I'm going to do?

I'm getting me season tickets
for the Lakers

And a parking spot, right in front of the
Staples Center

Let's split up and go in

I will go wherever you go

Be careful

Yes, Sheriff-to-be

Tony, I swear to god, man

I ever said about you and your people

I take back everything bad


Not at all

1 4 million, three hundred thousand
you want to count it?

As you say it's fourteen three

It's fourteen three

There is honor amongst thieves

I hear that

Put it in the trunk

He'll hook up the net

Let's get your bags and you'll be out on
the freighter in twenty minutes

Just in time to say goodbye to our partner

Okay, I'll leave you two to work on
whatever you two want to work on...


How about one drink before you go?

Hell yeah! How about two, three
four, five?

So we'll get drunk and do some wild shit!


What the hell you're doing here
the sheriff?

Hold on

He's with us

The sheriff?

The sheriff is with the bad guys?

Isn't life a piss?

So... what do you want?

I'm handing in my resignation
with the police and you


I need some money. I'm going away

We don't give severance pay

You are shaking us down?

I'm starting to feel like I'm back
in Los Angeles

You have nothing I want

My silence

I'm gone

Sheriff Lin, whose word would
people believe?

A police officer, which I can prove
has been

on Ma's payroll for the last twenty years

or someone who has never even had
a speeding ticket, like me?

Look like you just screwed up with
the wrong vampire old man

you got some other hot commodities
you're selling for the day, Pops?

Yes, as a matter of fact, but it will cost
you 2 million dollars

Two million dollars? What you're selling?

Missile technology or germ warfare, pops?

Neither, an informant

Bull shit

My money and a safe passage to
my daughter and me

Out of Lung Cheng, out of China

Do we have a deal?

Japanese lnterpol

Tony. I've told you man. I never trusted
that bitch... I told you

And you, you might be ruined
by this romance

don't mess up the party!

Please take good care of Ruby for me

You will be fine

I will go with you

You take care of him, and I will take care
of Sheriff


All the cops are the same. They are all

Only this time, the bad guys win




Keep up!

This is not paint

We are not in the training

Keep up! You have to keep up

You will be fine

Please tell Ruby that

I cannot give her many children

You will be fine. Don't worry

And also...

I lover her forever

No... No...

I will not tell her... You tell her yourself!

Alex! You tell her yourself!

Alex! No... please don't!

Go, man, go, take off!

They are too heavy
We have to give up some

No, we cannot. Someone down there

Norika, come on

The engine is over heat

It's too heavy. I don't know how much
lift we can get

Let's drop the car

I drop you, asshole!


Let's unlock it

Get to the middle

Norika, get down

Officer, please help me, come and help me

You are the police, you cannot let me die
come on!

Norika, move back

Slowly... don't be nervous

A bit more...

Don't worry, slow down

Don't be nervous... Be careful...
just grab me tight...

Hurry up... help me

Be careful...grab tight

That's fine

Darren, thanks for taking care everything
for me

If it is not you, I really don't know what
would happen

It's my pleasure

You are the only family of Alex

I want you to keep this for him

You have to take care yourself when you
get to Milan

when you become a famous designer!

Don't forget me

No one will forget you

I am sure I will come back to Shanghai



Bye bye!

Hey! Hey!


So, can you stay for a while?

Maybe yes, maybe no

I depend what you'll do

What'd you like me to do?
