A surprisingly good 2001 Hong Kong film. There are several themes in this movie: good vs. evil, letting evil influence and take over one's mind, greed, power, poor vs. rich, conflicts with job duties, choosing money over friendship, etc. Daniel plays the character named Mike who is a good cop, turned undercover, turned bad guy/triad member. He is undercover as a triad and has been told by his boss that many undercovers have compltetly forgotten they are cops and taken the wrong path, he begins to wonder why he is a cop and lusts for the power that Brother Tin played by Eric Tsang has.
Daniel Wu once again surprises with his hard to come by talent, his acting was once again superior to the others.
The film has many messages and really makes you think, to me i did not expect the ending that happened as i did not expect with all the background that mike (wu's character) had that he would turn out to be what you see him to be. Cop on a mission is a good film and has twists that will keep you interested and it is worth every minute that daniel wu is in. Eric Tsang plays his part well but is more suited to comedy/action films in my opinion. However, this film is highly reccommended.
