Nick Chen (Chow Yun-Fat) is a member of the NYPD's Chinatown division, and he's attempting to keep the peace between three Chinese gangs: the Tongs, Triads, and Fukienese Dragons. He is partnered with a rookie detective named Danny Wallace (Mark Wahlberg), the sole white guy in the unit.
Wallace struggles with the nuances of Chinese culture, but his naivety allows him to be bribed by the Tongs' leader, Henry Lee (Ric Young). Nick is also on Lee's payroll however, and now neither partner can gauge the other's sincerity.
The Corruptor was nominated for a Teen Choice Award.
