Press Quotes

The action scenes in Long Arm of the Law are unusually realistic for a 1984 production

     —Frank Djeng, A Brief History of Kung Fu Cinema

It is certainly a forerunner of the heroic bloodshed films, which would go on to dominate Hong Kong cinema in the 1980s. But Long Arm of the Law is so much darker than what followed.

     —Richard James Havis, South China Morning Post

Unlike most of the Heroic Bloodshed films the violence is not romanticised. It is gritty and savage with an almost documentary approach to film making

     —Pat King, Far East Films

This excellent crime thriller is a testament to real filmmaking

     —LoveHKfilm.com

Distinct with its genuine aesthetics, Long Arm of the Law is a key film in Hong Kong’s cultural shift during the ’80s.

     —MATT PAPROCKI, DoBlu.com
