Storyline

In the safest city in Asia, the Hong Kong police department has been untouchable for years. Until one night the police headquarters receives an anonymous call after a fully loaded police van, carrying five highly trained officers and equipment, disappears off the gird. After receiving several cryptic phone calls from the hijackers one officer starts realizing they're aware of every crucial decision they make. But as they execute a carefully planned attack, little do they know they've become unwitting pawns in a bigger, more dangerous game. Written by Lionsgate

What is it good for?
14 August 2014 | by See all my reviews

I wouldn't agree with the "absolutely nothing" that follows in that particular song, but then again it does only refer to war, which itself is a solid sentiment. But this movie is worth something, even if it is not up to par, with other productions we are now almost accustomed with. Still better than any average US Hollywood action movie, this gives you what you want from it.

And that is action and suspense primarily. Not the best stunts I have seen, but with a stellar cast and a story that is trying to be as tricky as possible (especially morally wise), this does entertain and keep you guessing until the end. A more than decent effort which can be recommended
