Bracingly chilly!

Hard Boiled, directed by the master of the genre, director John Woo, is a cult favorite. The Corruptor isn't in that league.
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/4
January 1, 2000
A half-hearted photograph of the real thing.
January 1, 2000
A dizzying mix of plot twists and noisy shootouts, but the real attraction here is the undeniable onscreen charisma of Hong Kong star Yun-Fat.

Despite a few unlikely plot developments, "The Corruptor" is compelling from start to finish

Half-hearted dishonesty, which the film barely attempts to conceal, turns out to be The Corruptor's true corruption.
January 1, 2000
It surprises by taking us inside Chinatown, where we discover just how sinister and elaborate the relationships between the police and the businessmen can be.

Jarringly entertaining!

You probably can't blame Chow for The Corruptor. No way he could outmaneuver the director and the writers. The only thing in The Corruptor more catastrophic than the car chases is the script.
January 1, 2000
It's rote baloney, trotting out every dead-stupid cop-movie cliche in the book and doing it colorlessly.
January 1, 2000
The Corruptor, despite good actors and a richly waxed enamel of style, is corrupt. The worm of old cliché twists in the dirty story.
