Storyline

Beijing police officer Zhang Hui Ling, who patrols Haidian District's Shuangyushu neighborhood in Beijing, has a job to do. Every day, he has to go out in the street with his cohort of security guards who speak a bewildering array of accents from all over China, and track down and arrest thieves, hucksters, and con artists. And he's good at it; after more than 10 years on the force, Zhang Hui Ling has an uncanny ability to sniff out criminals from the throngs of people passing through his district. He needs those skills in Shuangyushu, a migrant neighborhood where criminals congregate. Like the car thief who steal BMW's and Mercedes with interface gadgets he buys on the Internet, or the family gang who crash cars into passing automobiles and demand settlement on the spot, or the currency counterfeiters, con artists who dress as monks to defraud religious old women in crisis, or the former thief who was injured during his last arrest and now hounds his unemployed younger brother for ...

Another view on China's "immoral cops"
15 June 2013 | by (Thailand) – See all my reviews

Before continuing, I am not a Chinese, I inform as a foreigner watching a foreign film.

From an outsider's point of view, China is just a place where pickpockets and just bad people do crimes for everyday life and the police could never try to get rid of them. Also, cops are lazy and they just blackmail commoners everywhere.

In conclusion, this film gave a new perspective on being a cop, of how it's just not going lazy everyday but to fight not only the outside's negatives, but the inside's negatives too.

==========================

SPOILERS SECTION IS BELOW, READ BELOW ONLY AFTER YOU'VE FINISHED THE FILM!!!!!!!!

==========================

SPOILERS!!!!!!!

This film gave us a new perspective of the police force just doing their jobs, and how tiring they were, catching these people that would redo their crimes again and again. There's one point in the movie where the main character just says that he's tired and he felt sad because he took in negative energy again and again and it never end.

Another new perspective is the morality of his job. There's another point into the story where the Gold-digger guy says that he's going to rob and give away money to the little kid, and the main cop just smashed his phone to the ground. It's fair for the cop. He's protecting the law and this guy is just trying to get rid of him. If he get the Gold- digger, the people won't respect him since he is trying to stop the guy from giving the kid money. On the other hand, if he did not catch Gold- digger, he's not doing his job, therefore not qualifying as a cop. It's the fights inside him that makes you think and feel for the cop.
