Two young Chinese Police Officers, Darren (Aaron Kwok) and Alex (Leehom Wang) investigate a murder they witnessed.

China Strike Force was shot in both Mandarin and English. The director Stanley Tong shot the film in Shanghai as the location as he found it cheaper than shooting the film in Hong Kong and he also wanted to get to know mainland China better.[1]
