Storyline

A gang of crooks robbing cash collectors, run into a police surveillance team and the inadequate police response results in a gunfight. A TV crew on assignment in the area happens to capture this humiliation on camera, and this example of police incompetence is soon the lead story in every news bulletin. Public confidence in law and order now suffers irreparable harm. The head of the Moscow force welcomes a public search-and-destroy operation against these thugs, the brainchild of Katya, his PR director. She proposes that the capture of this dangerous gang be transformed into a live TV show of a kind never seen before. At this point she cannot know that the gang leader's life-and-death struggle with the police is destined to lead to a media duel. Besieged in a huge apartment block, the crooks hold hostage a father and his son and daughter. A massive special forces rescue operation is mounted but fails miserably. Undaunted by this setback, Katya and her team of specialists manipulate ... Written by Anonymous

Trivia

Much like how Frostbite broke the record for most special effects and blood used in a Swedish production, Anders Banke broke the record for most bullets fired in a Swedish production in this film. Infact, there where so many explosions and noise on set that he got a minor hearing disorder. See more »

Breaking News: A Russian Remake!
29 October 2009 | by kosmaspSee all my reviews

Remakes are not solely owned by the Americans. In this case, a Russian filmmaker took Johnnie To's "Breaking News" and remade it. Unfortunately I haven't seen the HK Original from To, but judging from what I saw in the Russian movie (and of course To's general body of work), it must be a really great movie.

It translates into the Russian landscape well and you have an action movie, that is intelligent, with a slight taste of media criticism. Good characters make up for a great viewing, with whom you can stay on and people you can root for (even if their intentions might be criminal ones). This movie really had me caught and made me really want to see the Original, which I am going to do soon, too!
