From the acclaimed action director of 'The Matrix' and 'Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon'. This film stars Donnie Yen, (who also starred in such films as 'Iron Monkey' and 'Highlander:Endgame'), and it is effectively a high-energy tribute to Harrison Ford's 'Witness.
'In The Line Of Duty' is one of the most accomplished action-adventures to come out of Hong Kong, and was a massive hit with audiences all over the world. Donnie Yen is at his acrobatic best in this film which filled with martial arts brilliance.
One of the best 'kickers' in the business, Donnie Yen seems to know 'No limits' in his technical ability to deliver kung fu thrills and spills.

This movie has the appearance of a low budget film. There are also many gaps in the plot. However, the action is awesome and plentiful. Donnie Yen isn't the main star of the film, but he is still involved in many action sequences in which he is remarkable. Cynthia Khan is the main star which is O.K because in this particular film she was excellent. This film contains so much Hong Kong style martial art action and there are enough crazy stunts that if you are remotely interested in this kind of film, then this movie would be a very wise purchase.

This film is no less than brilliant. The story line is excellent.An innocent guy gets arrested for murder and its up toDonnie Yen and Cynthia Kahn to protect him before the bad guys get to him. The other cop played by Michael Wong comes across good to start with but turns out he is on the baddie side. The action all through this film is brilliant, giving you just about enough time to get your breath back before the kicks and punches start again. Donnie Yen does fantastic martial art fighting and a final fight on a roof top towards the end of the movie is mind blowing which will prove to anyone watching him for the first time just how good he is. I have watched this movie several times and yet it never fails to amaze me how much hard work is put into it. So if you have not seen "In the line of duty" buy it today. You will not be sorry.

This film is filled to the brim with action fight sequences, from the word go. And as a huge Donnie Yen fan, I was very impressed with every fight sequence he was in. Even though he wasn't the main star of the film, he made such an impression that you forgot all about the leading actress.
The story is quite straight forward, but who cares, when the fight sequences are so amazing (Especially the climatic fight with Micheal Woods).
I also love watching the Donnie yen interview (on the extra feature section of the DVD) as-well as he explains the high standard that was required of him when working with Yeun Wo Ping. If you are collecting all the great donnie yen movies, as I am, then this has to be in your collection. No question about it!
I hope this has helped you.
