Overall Score: 3.5 out of 5 stars
This is packed with some really great no-holds barred action. I love me a good action film and director Dante Lam really delivers a good one. The fighting scenes in this film is very explosive…literally. Leon Lai known best for his film “Bodyguards and Assassins” really kick ass and takes names. The story was strong with only a small dip in the middle and a wicked strong ending. If you are a fan of John Woo-like action, this is a must for you.
The story follows Captain Manfred (Leon Lai) who is a crossroads in his life when he is assigned to the case of a lethal car accident and the death of a prostitute. He is assigned to work with Inspector Lee, in which they are complete opposites. They have to work together to get to the bottom of this case as they get swept up into the world of crime. The unlikely team finds that they have themselves dug very deep in it and need to find a way out…alive.
The special features include five great behind the scenes featurettes, which take us into the making of the action packed film. They are very interesting and totally worth watching, especially if you like the behind the scenes for an action film. There is also an international trailer included. What I like most about Vivendi Entertainment’s films is that they really support the QR scanning codes and they provide additional mobile features by scanning the code. It is really a neat feature that a lot of people are not doing yet.
