Decent action, not much else in Undercover Punch & Gun

Action and martial arts take center stage in Well Go USA’s Undercover Punch & Gun from directors Lui Koon Nam & Frankie Tam. Xiao Wu (Philip Ng) is a cop deep undercover who has constructed a comfortable niche for himself in the criminal underworld. One of the benefits includes dating the boss’s daughter Dawnie (Aka Chio Wai-shan).

While the elite cop works undercover to infiltrate a notorious drug ring, his plan is in jeopardy when a rival agency holding a grudge attacks his crew during a trade, killing the gang’s leader Brother Bao (Lam Suet). Naturally, Wu becomes the new leader and must deal with sworn enemy Xia (Andy On). Before long, both teams must unite and take to the high seas in an attempt to overthrow the ruthless smuggler behind it all.

Directors Lui Koon Nam & Frankie Tam have previously collaborated on films such as The Four 2 and its follow up The Four 3. That said, it is surprising that this film has three additional writers when the duo could have handled everything themselves. Furthermore, the film was a passion project for some of its principal cast, some of whom appeared in the 2003 movie Star Runner. Ng and On are two of Hong Kong’s top action stars, so in that regard, that action does deliver the goods. That said, do not go into Undercover Punch & Gun expecting groundbreaking storytelling, as everything in the film you have seen before. However, if fight scenes and shootouts are your speed, Undercover Punch & Gun is worth a one-time view.

Final Grade: C+

Undercover Punch & Gun is available on digital today. In addition, you can also purchase the film on Blu Ray & DVD.
