For all your cult film, tv, cartoon, comic and video game needs

Cult Movie Essentials: Forbidden City Cop (1996)

Directed by Vincent Kok and Stephen Chow, Forbidden City Cop follows Ling Ling-Fat (Chow) the incompetent fourth member of the Baolong clan – the elite guard assigned to protect the Emperor (Cheung Tat-ming). Whilst his three team mates practice martial arts Ling instead builds crazy gadgets and contraptions. He also practices gynaecology, and spends time with his loving wife (Carina Lau).

When we first see Ling in action he fails in his attempt to capture four ugly swordsmen who are trespassing in the Forbidden City. He does, however, manage to acquire a kung fu manual from one of them. Their escape alongside Ling’s seemingly useless inventions and lack of any martial arts skills enrage the Emperor, who demotes him to various menial tasks around the palace.

Meanwhile, King Faceless of the Kam Tribe plans to assassinate the Emperor and overtake China. The Kam Tribe creates a diversion by inviting all the doctors of China to a medical exposition in which a “Flying Fairy” – is to be dissected. Ling Ling-Fat and the Emperor separately depart for the event. While Ling and his wife feast at a string of restaurants, Kam’s men kill the Emperor’s three remaining bodyguards. Leaving Ling at the only one left to protect the Emperor!
