Above average police thriller from Hong Kong about gun expert who seems to be in deep trouble after disrupting what appears to be a heist of corporate bonds. This hero seems to be a brooding, introverted type of person, conflicted over his own actions. If my first few lines of description here suggest appearances prove wrong in the movie, then you have some idea of the film's plot development. Good performances and clever construction keep the film moving for a time but, unfortunately, it builds to an easily predictable climax that one almost wishes didn't happen. Additionally, some poorly developed romantic threads in the movie leave one wondering why the romance(s) ever developed in the first place, especially after the film's later revelations. Not bad, but not a good film either.
