Storyline

A traffic accident changed their lives forever. In capturing wanted criminal Zhang Yidong, Sergeant Tang Fei (Nicholas Tse) was involved in a gunfight and car accident that put the criminal in a coma. But in the process he also crippled an fellow officer, and mistakenly shot dead the elder daughter of public prosecutor and single mother Gao Min (Zhang Jingchu). Unable to handle the guilt, Tang Fei succumbs to a fog of pain. Gao Min, meanwhile, pours all her love and attention to her younger daughter Ling. Three months later, the criminal Zhang Yidong awakens from his coma. Gao Min, who had been working hard on bringing him to justice, insists he stand trial immediately. Written by Wiki the Pedia

Beaststalker at SIFF 2009--fantastic
23 May 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Just saw Dante Lam's Beaststalker at Seattle International Film Festival and loved it. Can anyone tell me why he chose that title? In other words, what is the significance of the name "Beaststalker"? I haven't seen "Beast Cop," but is there some kind of convention or genre in HongKong cinema that would explain it?

To anyone who hasn't seen this film, I highly recommend it. The performances are outstanding, it's a real emotional roller-coaster, and is very cleverly put together. Here's hoping that the Americans don't try to remake it, as it would lose its real punch. The only good remake I've ever seen was "The Departed," and even that one didn't live up to the HK original.
