It introduces us to Uncle Fung (Lam), a kindly rural policeman who is "more like a Taoist priest than a cop" -- including apprehending an angry ghost with a candle and cloth, after an old lady accidentally angers it. There must be a lot of people who get killed by angry spirits, if this scene is any indicator.
Then we switch to ndercover cops Lam (Wilson Lam) and 'Head' (Miu Kiu Wai), who try to apprehend a drug courier, only to get tossed away like rag dolls. Turns out she died several days ago. This is the ideal crime for Fung, so he and his pretty niece Lin move into Lam's bachelor pad. No, I don't know why Fung doesn't kick Lam out the window for hitting on his niece.
When Fung isn't keeping the womanizing Lam away from his niece, the three cops are tracking the dead woman's boyfriend. The man unwittingly leads them to the head of the drug ring -- a Japanese Taoist sorceress, who reanimates corpses as couriers. Only Fung can stop another Taoist magician -- but soon they've unleashed a horrific zombie that wants them all dead.
Reportedly Lam didn't really enjoy doing these vampire/zombie/ghostbuster roles, and some of them were pretty lame. Fortunately "Magic Cop" is one of the better roles, and it actually improves as you watch it multiple times. After all, it shares a writer with the classic "Shaolin Soccer."
Expect lots of kung-fu and unusual action scenes, like a wonderful scene where Fung battles fiery cloaks and flying roofing tiles. But there's plenty of humor too, ranging from cheap laughjs to more long-running jokes (like Fung redecorating the bachelor pad). Too bad the subtitling is typical eighties stuff -- sometimes it's hard to tell what they're saying.
Ching-Ying Lam is giving a typical performance here (the stoic Taoist priest), but he gets some great, acrobatic kung-fu near the end. Michiko Nishiwaki is wonderfully creepy as the sorceress with the deadly ropes. But too much attention is paid to his sidekicks, one trusting and kind of dumb, and the other cocky and womanizing.
"Magic Cop" is a pleasant variation of the usual vampire-busting movie, and Ching Ying Lam never disappoints with his signature role. Definitely worth seeing, despite the flawed sidekicks.
There are no real fights, it is all Taoism vs. black magic duels. I don't mind not having any action, as long as the magic tricks keep me interested all the way through. This movie provided that, but I was majorly disappointed with Billy Chow's character. He only gets to show off a few of his moves. I mean come on, this guy has arguably the greatest fight scene ever with Jet Li in Fist of Legend. His character is not a Taoist, so Lam Ching Ying's magic has no effect on him. Since the movie is directed by Steve Tung Wai, I expected at least 1 good fight. After the setup of Chow's character, they didn't feel the need to capitalize on this for some reason. That is the only problem I have with the movie, but it is a major problem.
The picture quality on the Megastar DVD is a bit above average. Subtitles have errors here and there, Cantonese and Mandarin track included, and there is also an English dub for people that can't stand reading subtitles.
Before his death in 1997, Lam Ching Ying starred in a number of movies (Mister Vampire, One Eyebrow Priest, Close Encounters of the Spooky Kind, and various sequels) as basically the same character, the "Eternal Sifu", a tough taoist priest capable of controlling the undead, defeating spirits, and just generally kicking supernatural butt.
In this film, he brought his Eternal Sifu into the modern world as a cop (who is also Taoist Priest) investigating a drug ring that seems to be made up largely of reanimated corpses. The results are truly spectacular, sucking you into a world where minor errors in ritual can cause spirits to assault you, mirrors damage evil spirits, and bad Feng Shui can get you killed.
I've stopped buying VHS tapes in favor of DVDs, but for this one, I just might make an exception. My old copy seems to have died.
