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

Worth seeing, just don't expect greatness.
14 August 2016 | by (Hampshire, England) – See all my reviews

Tough cop Tong Fei (Nicholas Tse) seeks redemption for his accidental shooting of a little girl by trying to rescue her sister Ling (Suet-yin Wong) from the clutches of a desperate kidnapper/killer for hire (Nick Cheung).

Dante Lam's crime thriller Beast Stalker offers up some superbly handled sequences, including an exciting car chase that culminates in a show-stopper of a slow-motion crash, several effective emotionally wrought scenes, and a real nail-biter of a finale. The characters are well drawn, with both cop and killer presented as real people rather than two dimensional caricatures.

But as commendable as all of this is, I couldn't help but feel a little disappointed by the plot, which does little to elevate itself from countless other HK cop thrillers—I have the feeling that as much as I liked the film as it unfolded, it won't be long before I will have forgotten all about it. Lam's use of shaky cam can also get a little irritating at times, and the twist at the end (which reveals cop and killer to have crossed paths years before) is extremely contrived.
