Aces Go Places - Wing On Plaza

Sam Hui rides down the moving stairways at Wing On Plaza in Tsim Sha Tsui East. Three years later, Jackie Chan would use the very same location for the final fight in Police Story.


Aces Go Places II - Houston Centre

Sam Hui entering one of Houston Centre's upper floors by the use of a zip-wire. Ethan Hunt would be proud of him.


Aces Go Places III - Our Man from Bond Street - Sun Hung Kai Centre

Once again, Sam Hui's character King Kong (or a dummy) doing some zip-lining. This time at Sun Hung Kai Centre in Wan Chai.




In another scene, we see Karl Maka getting out of a taxi in front of Sun Hung Kai Centre's distinctive fountain which is located right below Sam Hui's zip-line. The same location has been used in Outlaw Brothers.

Aces Go Places V - Behind the Scenes



Winner Takes All - Hong Kong Space Museum

Wong Yu and Patrick Tse Yin hold a nightly meeting in front (or behind) the egg-shaped planetarium in Tsim Sha Tsui.


The Bloody Fists - Sai Wan, Sai Kung

Ruthless beheadings, drownings and deathly beatings at the beautiful Sai Wan beach in Sai Kung. The Bloody Fists aka Death Beach lives up to its alternative name. Ng See-Yuen's 2nd directorial effort features some nice filming locations in Hong Kong's New Territories with Sai Wan Beach being the most essential one.










The Return of Pom Pom - Poster



In the Line of Duty 3 - Victoria Harbour

Cynthia Khan and Fujioka Hiroshi approaching Hong Kong Island the nautical way. The iconic skyline went through a few changes since 1988.


In the Line of Duty 4 - Queen Elizabeth Hospital

The hospital Yuen Yat-Choh had been taken to. The interior is probably just a studio set but Queen Elizabeth Hospital's facade is as real as it gets.


In the Line of Duty 5: Middle Man - Three Fathoms Cove

Three Fathoms Cove in Tai Po District doubling for Korea. The final duel between Cynthia Khan and Kim Maree Penn takes place at Kei Ling Ha Hoi Pier which has been furnished with some fake walls and a roof. The orange lifesavers still seem to be the same ones. Kei Ling Ha Hoi Pier was also used as a platform for battle in My Young Auntie and Stage Door Johnny.


The Naval Commandos - Behind the Scenes

This brief sequence from Police Woman (aka The Heroine aka The Young Tiger aka Rumble in Hong Kong) offers a nice screenshot of Jardine House from 1973 - its opening year.


Hard Boiled - Yau Yat Chuen Garden City Club

The first face-to-face encounter between Chow Yun-Fat and Tony Leung Chiu-Wai takes place on Cassia Road in front of the Yau Yat Chuen Garden City Club. You'll probably recognise this filming location from The Iceman Cometh (1989) and Twin Dragons (also released in 1992).
