Inspector Pink Dragon is a 1991 Hong Kong action-crime-comedy film produced by and starring Lawrence Cheng and directed by Gordon Chan. This is also one of the earliest Hong Kong films shot in sync sound.

Plot[edit]

Inspector Ma Yue Lung (Lawrence Cheng) bumps into his ex-classmate and longtime lover Julia (Rosamund Kwan) while catching a thief. They both later go to an alumni and see another ex-classmate Ma Yau Yau (Tony Leung Ka Fai), who is now Julia's superior. When Yau returns home, he is murdered by Peter (Peter Lai). Heavy Crime Bureau chief Pau Yu Chat (Kenneth Tsang) sends Lung to go undercover to take Yau's job. After Lung goes undercover, he rises in rank and his paychecks increase. Julia also begins to develop feelings for Lung. Lung's girlfriend Ching (Nina Li Chi) suspects that something is wrong with Lung. Later, Julia brings Lung to meet a land developer, Tang Kwok Kiu (Damian Lau). During that time, another murder case comes up. Lung later finds out that Tang is the mastermind behind this, but he, Julia and Ching has become Tang's chests. Another inspector Shek Chun (Waise Lee) then gathers evidence and is determined to bring Tang to justice.
