Storyline

This dynamic police-crime thriller features superstars Jordan Chan and Sean Lau and offers explosive non-stop action for your video screen! Huang Jiang and Qi Xi are both very capable crime investigators. However, Huang has his heart and soul attached to truth and justice, while Qi Xi works as an informer for the triads and works as an accomplice of the crime lord Mang Chao. Huang has evidences to help him bust Mang, but Qi Xi interferes with his plans and gives Mang shelter. An ensuing roof-top shoot-out leaves Qi Xi & Mang dead and the police report states that Qi died while he was on duty. Wrongly assuming that Qi was murdered by Huang, his son swears revenge.

Good Cop Film
26 August 2003 | by (www.nixflix.com) – See all my reviews

A great departure for creator WONG JING, known mostly for superfluous comedies and mindnumbingly bad comedy-action films that should have been left on the floor of Hong Kong film history (i.e. the '80s and early '90s).

COLOUR OF THE TRUTH is predictable and there's nothing new in it. In fact, it's somewhat of a copy of the far superior INFERNAL AFFAIRS in premise. Even so, TRUTH is rather enjoyable, thanks to a classic turn by star Anthony Wong.

Not quite as good as INFERNAL AFFAIRS, but even that movie was a retread of familiar territory. Hong Kong has done so many Cop/Triad films that it's hard to break new grounds. TRUTH doesn't, but it's still quite good.

6 out of 10.
