30 Movie Police Chiefs More Furious Than You Can Possibly Imagine | The Killer (1989)
The Killer (1989)

Angry chief: Chief Inspector Dou (Barry Wong)
Angriest quote: “Your emotions are getting in the way!”
Anger level: Bloody furious, although more restrainedly so than some.
Possible HR issues: None.
Health problems? No obvious problems. Might want to get that slo-mo thing looked at.
Badge and/or gun taken? Nope, but prison is definitely in the offing.

It’s not easy being a policeman in a John Woo film: all those shoot-outs to deal with, all those Triads to bring down, the dry-cleaning bill for the dove poo. That said, Danny Lee’s detective (“numbnuts” to his boss) isn’t making life easy for his superiors by teaming up with Chow Yun Fat’s assassin and going completely rogue in the Hong Kong underground. His chief inspector is sufficiently irked to give him a major bollocking, although sadly without the histrionics beloved of his American counterparts.
