Storyline

Mr. Wu (Andy Lau) is kidnapped in Beijing by Zhang Hua (Wang Qianyuan) and three accomplices, all disguised as cops and demanding a ransom of 3 million RMB. In the ensuing 20 hours, the Chinese detectives led by Chief Xing (Liu Ye) quickly form a task force and sweep the city. Time is of the essence as Mr. Wu is ordered to be killed at 9 PM regardless of whether the money is collected or not. The police eventually apprehend Hua alone. As the deadline approaches, the detectives and captors collide. Written by UEP North America

The bandits are brilliant, the others are ordinary
19 February 2019 | by yoggworkSee all my reviews

The bandits are brilliant, the others are ordinary. There are loopholes in the plot from the beginning. But the timeline and the plot are all right. It doesn't look messy and boring.
