About the Movie
Senior Inspector Don Lee (Nick Cheung) relies heavily on the information provided by stool pigeons in his job. Barbarian (Lu Yi) is a painstakingly meticulous arms dealer. Lee needs an informant to infiltrate his gang and recruits street-racer, Guy (Nicholas Tse). Guy delivers, but Lee is unable to effectively act on the information until the final moment. Since Barbarian has not left any evidence, Lee is pressured to convince Guy to become a witness for the prosecution and promises him a new identity in another country. When Guy’s life is put in harm’s way, a disillusioned Lee is left wondering if his quest for justice is worth the price that often has to be paid.
No heroes in this movie and very little action...but if you like good acting, a solid plot, and graphic scenes...this ones for you.
GREATEST HONG KONG MOVIE !!!!!
A NUCLEAR BOMB OF TOTAL AWESOME ACTION , DRAMA , AND ROMANCE WENT OFF YESTERDAY …. I WILL NOT SEE A GOOD MOVIE LIKE THIS FOR A LONG TIME!!!!!!
Worth a rent
There is actually a lot of action in this movie, but it is all in the last 20 minutes. Slow going up unit then, and barely enough to interest to keep you going. Basic cop-informant plot, but well cast and acted, with a few characters you can care about. Well selected sets and good direction.
