Action scenes great, but boring and predictable plot
14 December 2002 | by (Singapore) – See all my reviews

The set-piece action scenes filmed in Hongkong were shot realistically and with the gritty style of pre-millennial Hongkong films, but the movie's sudden plot shift to Singapore feels forced and unnatural as the story had to accommodate the shift, rather than the other way around. Nevertheless, you get scenes of Singapore that you will hardly ever see anywhere else - Singapore's Ministry of Defence (MINDEF) airbases, Suntec City Convention Hall, the tall Telecom building, and Clarke Quay along the Singapore river where fighting scenes, terrorists, spectacular gunchases and carchases congregate galore. Protagonist Aaron Kwok is likeable enough as the little brother of Ray Lui forced into having to grow up and become serious after his brother's involved in a sniper attack. Female lead Phyllis Quek is cool, calm and collected - but her emotional scenes are, more often than not, emotionless. Daniel Wu, James Lye and the rest of the supporting actors put in good performances, but this movie just doesn't satisfy. It's hampered by a boring, predictable plot. Certain scenes sometimes feel like it doesn't gel with other following scenes.
