An explosive cops and robbers thriller starring Andy LAU (INFERNAL AFFAIRS, HOUSE OF FLYING DAGGERS) and LAM Ka Tung (SPARROW, COLD WAR).
Tou Shing-bong (LAM Ka Tung) is released from prison and falls in with mainland crook Nam Cao (HU Jun) and his gang of armed robbers. Straight-laced police inspector Lui (Andy LAU) hunts them down, but due to a lack of evidence Nam continues to slip through his fingers. After witnessing the gang’s brutality first hand, Lui’s actions become obsessive and desperate, and his clean-cut facade begins to crack.
Beginning with an audacious, traffic-stopping heist, the action comes thick and fast, with spectacular stunts and high-octane gun battles that reduce familiar Hong Kong streets to rubble. A gripping hark back to the police actioners of the ’80s and ’90s.
