A Decent Cop/Buddy Film
23 November 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is the story of Michael and Lincoln (okay, who stole the title characters names, the writer of this film or the creator of "Prison Break?), who are both cops. Lincoln's brother was killed in what seemed like a simple robbery gone bad and Michael, though he can't stand Lincoln since he is from mainland China and more so because he stole his girlfriend Lisa, vows to find the killer in three weeks, so they join forces. The film has enough action, a lot of fighting especially, to sustain a decent review, but it is really run of the mill. I think it is mostly for fans of Shawn Yue and Aloys Chen, the two cops who are extremely wealthy, Michael from a rich father. I find the part of the film concerning Lisa kind of tiresome, and her indecisiveness about these two guys a little annoying. Otherwise, the film has some good action sequences, it is filmed very well (it is a very vivid film) and the locations are all Hong Kong. So, I do recommend but don't expect to love it at the end.
