Movie Info

David Lai Tai-wai spins this high-budget action thriller loosely based on Brian De Palma's Untouchables. The film unfolds in Shanghai during the 1920s when the town was awash with opium and bureaucratic corruption. Hoping to bring things under control, the government in Nanking sends straight-laced cop Cheung Ye-pang (Andy Lau Tak-wah) in to clean the place up. When his first attempts at a bust inevitably fail, Cheung begins to realize the degree and power of corruption in the city. Eventually, he manages to have some effect after he recruits a pair of scrupulous, loyal underlings. Cheung realizes that his biggest foe is drug lord and noted philanthropist Tai Chai-man (Damian Lau Chung-yan) and arrays his entire police arsenal against him. Soon an unforeseen tragedy strikes Cheung's family. ~ Jonathan Crow, Rovimore

Audience Reviews for Tian yu di (Chinese Untouchable) (Heaven and Earth)

Money-wasting promotion movie of Andy Lau. Two stars are for Andy and D.P. Pin-Bing Li who is famous as Hou Hsiao-Hsien's favorite cinematographer. Andy Lau is sincere for the role, and Pin-Bing Li's lighting design is gorgeous. Script sucks, and music is annoying. And it's really really sad and dipressing. Who wanna see this film twice?
