[Friday-16] I Corrupt All Cops (2009)

ICAC stood for Independent Commission Against Corruption (廉政公署), a prominent independent civil service in Hong Kong, established in 1974. There are many jokes surrounding this acronym such as "Investigating Chinese Ancient Customs" and "I Can Accept Cash". The newest addition is Wong Jing's new film, "I Corrupt All Cops" (金錢帝國).


With a solid cast of veterans - Tony Leung (梁家輝), Anthony Wong (黃秋生), Eason Chan (陳奕迅), and Bowie Lam (林保怡); freshies - Alex Fong (方力申), Kate Tsui (徐子珊) and seductive Natalie Meng (孟瑤) with her terrible Cantonese pronunciation, this movie is rather eye-opening while taking a little break from Wong Jing's usual vulgar and cheesy comedies.

In essence, "I Corrupt All Cops" is a fictionalized movie about the corrupted Hong Kong police force activities (1963-1973) that ultimately led to the establishment of the Independent Commission Against Corruption (ICAC) service in 1974.

Personally, I gave perfect scores for Tony Leung's powerful performance as the corrupted, ruthless, and arrogant Chinese Chief Inspector Lak. I loved the scene where he bashed one triad society's leader to death just because that good-for-nothing fella raised his voice against him. Anthony Wong, who took on the role as a useless and foul-mouthed low ranking cop named Unicorn is also another spectacle to behold. Watching his tug-of-war with his inner self to find human integrity in the evil world of corruption is kinda heart-wrenching. As usual, a lot of people had to die. :(

A review can be found here. I think I saw Torrent files available. You might consider watching the downloaded version instead. :)
