Downtown Torpedoes (1997)

[director Teddy Chan Tak-Sum]
Cast: Takeshi Kaneshiro, Jordan Chan, Charlie Yeung

A fluffy Mission:Impossible knockoff from a bunch of actors who are better elsewhere. Jordan Chan and the mute/cute computer expert were better in Big Bullet, Takeshi Kaneshiro is better in practically everything he’s done besides maybe Hero. Charlie Yeung was better in Fallen Angels, Task Force, and a slew of others, and we’ve hardly seen any of the rest of the cast again.

Still, the apparent friendship between Takeshi and Jordan Chan is kind of infectious, and we found ourselves going along with them as they pretty much played secret agent for an hour and a half. There are worse ways to spend your time.
