27 December 2003 | by (Ballarat, Australia) – See all my reviews

'Extreme crisis' is a pretty decent action movie that gets better as it goes along. Their are a fair few familiar plot devices (we have 2 minutes to disarm this bomb before we're all blown to smithereens!), but the action is tense and refreshing.

It's good to see an action film that is precisely that, and not trying to incorporate humour and drama everywhere where it doesn't belong.

I bought the DVD for Shu Qi's appearence, but her screen-time in minimal in the role of the newsreader/girlfriend.
