I never even imagined Hong Kong cinema can be this excellent
This film is about two Deputy Commissioners of Police dealing with the mysterious disappearance of a police car along with its five police officers.
"Cold War" wastes no time in building up suspense and thrill. Within a minute we already have an explosion in the middle of the most popular hang out place in Hong Kong. After that, the action never stops. The plot is very fast paced, it twists and turns in unexpected directions every few minutes. It is so engaging, the story is so grippingly told, that I was completely transfixed. My mind was blank with no distracted thoughts. I was simply in awe throughout the film. "Cold War" is so brilliant, from the intelligent plot, the star studded ensemble, the intense action, beautiful cinematography and great acting. Everything about "Cold War" is outstanding.
I have heard great things about "Cold War". Not only does it live up to its expectations, it certainly surpasses every single praise I have heard. In fact, "Cold War" is undoubtedly, undeniable the best Hong Kong film I have ever watched. I never even imagined Hong Kong cinema can be this excellent. Words fail to describe how outstanding "Cold War" is. I unreservedly recommend this film to anyone.
