I Corrupt All Cops
During the time when Hong Kong was under British colonial rule, there was once a dark age where corruption and bribery were the order of the day.
Leading the corrupt practices, Senior Inspector Lak (Tony Leung) takes charge of an organized system that allows police officers of all ranks to take bribes from all businesses, and at the same time he manages to keep crime rates low with the triads' cooperation, while Unicorn (Anthony Wong), Lak's subordinate, is making scapegoats out of innocent civilians at times with serious crimes to help him finish the task of faking crime reports.
Gale (Eason Chan), Lak's other subordinate, rises to a high rank because of his soccer skill and his willingness to do favors for his superiors, mostly by taking their mistresses and faking as his wives, and among whom, only may (Kate Hsui) is loyal to him. Rose (Liu Yang), a drug dealer becomes Gale's 10th wife after he accidently saved her.
To end this rampant corruption, the British establishes the Independent Commission against Corruption (ICAC) in the early 1970's with inspector Yim (Bowie Lam) leading fresh college graduates to take down corrupted cops. In Yim's team, there is Bong (Alex Fong), a persistent young idealist once arrested and d by Unicorn as a scapegoat. Later, to revenge on Lak for his insult and regain dignity, Unicorn joins Yim's team and teaches them to deal with their enemies with over-the-top but effective tactics. In time, the whole empire of golden calf is collapsing!
Realizing the hopeless situation, Lak and Rose choose to leave Hong Kong, while Gale starts having a crisis of conscience as he must decide whether to continue serving Lak or become clean again.
