Movie Info

An honest cop who may have inadvertently killed his partner during a particularly intense raid finds his life in danger when the grown-up sons of both the fallen the cop and the deceased kingpin who was killed in the chaos come gunning for him in a tense police thriller co-directed by Marco Mak and Wong Jing, and starring Hong Kong film legend Anthony Wong. Huang (Wong) is a righteous police officer haunted by a harrowing accident. It's been ten years since the fateful raid that resulted in the death of both his partner and the most feared criminal on the streets, and though the men's sons have grown older, their vengeance still burns as hot as ever. Now, as Huang is assigned the task of protecting a vile gangster and his teenage daughter (Gillian Chung), he is about to face a whole new danger as the sons of the fallen men attempt to decide if they should go after the man responsible for their father's deaths either alone or together. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovimore

Audience Reviews for Hak bak sam lam (Black White Forest) (Colour of the Truth)

Nicely plotted cop thriller from Hong Kong. Full of twists and surprises and some well choreographed shoot-outs to amp-up the excitement. If you enjoyed 'Infernal Affairs' then this is right up your street.

When it comes to Police / Detective Films one couldn't ask for a more exciting film. This one stars Anthony Wong (One of my Favorite Asian Actors) as the Chief Detective whose partner was killed many years before and now Wong is working with his partners son. The son is out for revenge because he thinks Wong killed his father. The pair are after a drug lord who has hired Cyclops to take out the Chief Detective. This movie is 1 hr 44 Min the language is Chinese, but film has English subtitles. Whoever did the English translation in subtitles really screw things up, as film is loaded with mistakes via the subtitles, but not enough to make it hard to understand. American Filmmakers could learn a lot about writing a action crime story by watching this film. There just seems to be more realistic action in a Asian Crime Story Films. I can not give this no less then 5 stars, because of the story line, the action scenes and just the overall filming a job well done. The only loss is to the American Movie Crowd for the fact that this was not promoted at all (That I Know Of) in the American Theater. A American remake would only be a disappointment like most of the Asian Horror Movies that are remade with different actors here in America. My hats off to the entire crew responsible for this film and thank you for 104 minutes of pure entertainment.
