Ma Jun, a cop known for dispensing justice during arrests, teams with Hua Sheng, who's undercover, to try to bring down three merciless Vietnamese brothers running a smuggling ring in the months before the mainland's takeover of Hong Kong. The eldest, Xian Wei Cha (called Zah), is arrested in an operation that exposes Sheng and almost gets him killed. His girlfriend, Qiu Di, who's been unaware of Sheng's profession, wants to see him quit. Jun pursues the gang tirelessly, sometimes ignoring police protocols. Zah's trial approaches, witnesses are in danger, and a showdown is inevitable.Written by
Due to the intensity and complexity of the sequence, both Donnie Yen and Collin Chou agreed that their fight sequence at the end of the film was the hardest shoot they had ever done in their respective careers See more »
When the man is shot on the roof of the parking structure, even though the movie depicts events in 1997, there is a modern silver BMW 5-series parked next to the victim's car. It is a 2004-2007 (pre January 2007 facelift) model. See more »
The China version features an additional scene - where Tony's diseased mother shows up looking for her sons - during the final fight with Inspector Ma and Tony. See more »
Donny Yen plays a no nonsense cop who basically beats up every bad guy in this film. The movie is about Donny Yen and his partner who is undercover trying arrest some drug smugglers. The plot is nothing special and you don't really care for the characters that much but you should't be here for the plot or the acting. The action/fighting in this movie is incredible. The last fight scene is one the the best fight scenes I have ever seen put on film. My recommendation would be to watch the first 10 minutes and then skip to the last 30 minutes of the movie because nothing really happens in between. His partner falls in love and there is a car chase that's nothing special. Watch it for the great fights, not for the acting or plot.
Rating: 10 for the fights, 5 for everything else = 7
