Chinese Only Trailer For Jet Li's BADGES OF FURY Aims Up-Kilt

Todd Brown, Founder and Editor
Let there be no doubt about it. While the western marketing for upcoming Jet Li starring picture Badges Of Fury has done everything in its power to present the film as an action thriller, this is a comedy through and through. A very, very goofy comedy.Here's how the film is being described for international markets:

When a spate of eerie murders erupts across Hong Kong two troublemaking cops are assigned to the case. Young maverick WANG and grizzled vet HUANG who is fed up with his reckless younger partner always landing them in hot water. Reaching a dead end after discovering all the victims were former boyfriends of aspiring starlet LIU, the detectives must play a deadly game. One of them must go undercover as Liu's lover to lure the killer out.
Ooh, gritty, right? Well, the English subtitled Hong Kong trailer for the film put the lie to that with plenty of comedic elements turning up there but now a Chinese-only trailer has followed and not only is it comedy start to finish but it's very, very silly comedy. Personally I've never been particularly fond of Li in comedy mode but mileage may vary. Take a look below.

Around the Internet:

    Jet Li's City Hunter...personally, I'd like to see this just to know how it would play out.

  • Lysander

    It's beautiful...

    I especially like the Expendibles-esque winged kitty emblem.

    looks rubbish

    I think the chinese film industry is trying to recreate another Stephen Chow in the form of Wen Zhang. Michelle Chen is absolutely terrible and childish thinks she cute when she's not but rather obnoxious.

    Obviously cheesy, but also sarcastic to the point its distasteful. Wanted to rant get this off my chest.

  • Qinlong

    I wish Jet Li would come back to the grit of Warlords...

  • Joe Foolio

    "Badges of Fury" sounds like a better name for a comedy. It's so cheesy.

  • DooK

    No offense but Yen's movie is going to outbeat every single molecule out of this movie.

  • Al Young

    Heres the Chinese trailer with English subtitles:
