Storyline

JS Cheung (by Andy Lau), a Superintendent in Explosive Ordnance Disposal Bureau (EOD) of Hong Kong Police Force, went undercover seven years ago into the gang led by the most-wanted crime boss Peng Hong (by Andy Lau). Cheung successfully uprooted the gang and arrested a few robbers including Hong's younger brother Biao. However, Hong was on the loose and he swore he'd be back for revenge. Seven years have passed and Hong kick starts his plan - a series of bomb attacks have sparked fear among Hong Kong citizens. To maintain law and order, Cheung must put Hong behind bars and he is ready to sacrifice his life to fight a tough battle with the ruthless bomber.

Andy Lau on Cruise Control
1 November 2017 | by kosmaspSee all my reviews

Police Drama injected with Action. We have seen a lot of good movies coming out of Hong Kong (I have I should say, but if you are interested in this my guess is, this isn't your first either) and after the re-entering also from China. So this almost feels like a step back if you are being as real as possible.

Still in Hollywood standards this is at least decent. Very predictable and all, and not that tension filled as it believes it is, but the action is good, Andy Lau pulls his weight and if you only like him a little bit, that will be enough to let you love this anyway. It does have an ending that may be a bit too much, but then again, it does try to blow the top of the roof of anyway ... no pun intended
