Traffic Police Chief:
Now what time it is? Don't you know there's three shifts? You realize if you're late, the next person waits? You've been a cop for ten years, but you don't know the basics. You! Know how many traffic lights or control boxes are in your area?
[Trying to sleep on the couch]

What? You don't know? Think that makes sense? Hey. Wake up!

There is no denying that it is good to see this film released in the uk around the summer blockbuster season (i saw this film in a ugc multiplex which was playing as part of a season of asian films released across the summer), but this film in particular suffers from flaws, mainly a plot that is unoriginal and scenes and situations that dont seem to stick together, the change in mood for instance, from almost slapstick comic to dark murder thriller, but that is not to say that the film is not good, there are many scenes and themes that work well, such as the contrast between the tough maverick cop and the arrogant and psychotic fund manager who has shades of AMERICAN PSYCHO'S Patrick Bateman, and the use of dark humour which seems to be present in many of the recent asian cinema releases. Overall a film worth checking out but not one to keep your hopes up high for.
