Not really a made-for-TV movie, more like PTU: The Series...
22 March 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Most descriptions look at The Code from the point of view of being a PTU sequel, or a scaled down version, instead of from the perspective of being the first of a series television movies which roughly equate to a serialized television show. If you don't look at this from that perspective, your enjoyment will be hampered.

This is very much like the original movie, the characters and actors are here. There is a little more substance, a little more plot, but it is just as straight forward as the original, and as such, I won't spoil it here.

Unlike the movie, this relies upon an ensemble of more than three characters, and all major characters are suitably defined.

If you like any of the non-Johnnie To Milkyway movies, this is worth a try, even if you haven't seen the original PTU.
