Hack Job of a FilmBy David Stone-Haigh from Salford, Lancs , 24 Sep 2004
[Highly rated reviewer]Tiresome early-ish asian action film in the mismatched buddy cop genre. Nonesense from start to finish. Probably only of interest to Chow Yun Fat fans (where I came in) to see some of the poorly made material he had to wade through to get where he is today.

Good mix of comedy and actionBy brokenking (268 reviews) from Bristol , 11 Oct 2010A bit of change of pace for Chow Yun Fat this one. Like most people I thought this would be similar to Chow Yun Fat's work with John Woo. In truth fo him at least its more of a comedy piece while most of the action (which the trailer concentrates on) is carried out by his on screen partner. The main bulk of the film the usual police vs. gangster war but it all comes together in the end with a fantastic gun battle and chainsaw duel (yep that realy does happen and its well worth the rental). In summation, don't believe the trailer as it largely sells the film on the the action, but the scenes in between are still good.
ClassicBy Haroon Rafiq from Derby , 01 Dec 2007A good movie to watch if you like chow yun fat and classic hong kong movies
Very enjoyable film.By a customer from Norfolk , 05 May 2006I really enjoyed watching Tiger On The Beat knowing very little about it before watching it. probably the main reason I chose this film was because Chow Yun Fat is the star. However he doesn't really play the all-action hero(or gangster) in this film. His part is a mixture of action and comedy which can be hit and miss but I found overall quite good and quite funny. The other leading actor Conan Lee, who incidentally looks like a Jackie Chan clone, provided more of the action and stunts in the film.
Chow Yun Fat's martial-arts fighting was a little lacklustre but his partner Conan Lee deserves most of the credit taking part in some breathtaking stunts and performing some well choreographed martial-arts sequences. The highlight being the chainsaw fight sequence.
There are definitely parallels to Lethal weapon so fans of Hong Kong action or fans of Lethal weapon should enjoy this.
Don't forget to listen to the Bey Logan audio commentary which is fascinating as always.
7.5 out of 10
FUN AND GREATBy K C CHIN from England , 20 Oct 2005I love it. Laughed a lot. Full of action, humour and interesting fight scenes, realistically sometimes. Worth seeing a second time some time in the future for me!
Bit TackyBy a customer from YORKSHIRE UK , 24 Jul 2005Bit Tacky really and sickly the way Boobs were highlighted as part of the film. This really does not make more interesting viewing and cheapens what could of been a reasonible film. This Hong Kong Film lacked something compared to alot of other Hong Kong films but still was ok if you really want to pass the evening & nothing else is on! The highlight of this film was the Chain saw scene!
