Fantastic action and a great story...
17 July 2012 | by (Denmark) – See all my reviews

"Invisible Target" ("Naam Yi Boon Sik") was really an adrenaline rush like none other. And it is well-suited for anyone who went through the late 1980s and early-mid 1990s watching Chow Yun Fat movies. There is a lot of action in the movie, in the likes of gunfights, martial arts and chase scenes.

The story is about three very different police officers in the Hong Kong police who are chasing after a group of criminals on a wild chase taking them wide and far around Hong Kong. The officers are heartbroken Detective Chan Chun (played by Nicholas Tse) who lost his fiancée in an explosion during a robbery of an armored truck, the arrogant Inspector Carson Fong Yik Wei (played by Shawn Yue) and fresh-out-of-the-academy officer Wai King Ho (played by Jaycee Chan). Who is the mastermind behind the well-orchestrated robbery, and whom can they trust?

"Invisible Target" is driven by a great story that comes off a very plausible and realistic, but it is also driven by the non-stop action, not to mention the vivid and detailed characters.

The people cast for the various roles really did good jobs with their given roles, and that really helped the movie well along.

Being a fan of Hong Kong cinema and having lived there myself, I found this movie very enjoyable, especially because it does show off a lot of aspects of Hong Kong, not just showing the glamour, fluorescent lights and the rich and famous.

I will say that that music score for the movie wasn't all that impressive, and it was not standing out in anyway. It was mostly just faded into the background and hardly noticeable. But towards the end, it ticks over and becomes rather irritating.

"Invisible Target" is highly recommendable for people who enjoy Asian movies and action movies in particular. It is a worthy movie in any movie aficionado's DVD collection.
