Storyline

An undercover cop badly injured in a raid is blamed for the raid's failure and thrown out of the police department. His injuries result in his being paralyzed form the waist down, and doctors tell him that if he doesn't have an operation within a few months, the paralysis will be permanent. His friends in the police department decide that, since the underworld was responsible for their friend's injuries, the money for the operation should come from them, and they set out to get it.

Excellent Adrenaline-Charged Film
27 August 2003 | by NIXFLIX-DOT-COMSee all my reviews

One of the few action films from Hong Kong in 2001 that went mostly ignored. Despite the cast of mostly pop idols (a sure sign that a film will, in a word, be "lame"), HIT TEAM works as an action film and nothing more. The story needs some sort and is rather predictable, not to mention being a bit cheesy, but the film's superior action sequences save it from Hong Kong oblivion.

Of nose is a couple of gunfights where director Dante Lam channelled Michael Mann ala HEAT. HIT TEAM is one of recent Hong Kong action films that have started to break the mold of what a "Hong Kong action film" is. The gunfight is now more realistic, which translates into sheer excitement.

Still, HIT TEAM does have some big problems. Of note is the storyline, which is too formulaic. Also, the movie boasts some of the worst English subtitles known to man. Truly, truly horrible. But the whole thing is worth it just for the thrilling action.

7 out of 10.
