It`s dead-on target. A shaprly crafted, swiftly-paced and intelligent thriller thats filled with sizzling suspense and high-energy action. An exciting, stylish and wickedly cool movie. A smart, pulse-pounding, and first-rate thinking-man`s crime thriller that packs a full-clip and packs a wallop...literally. It has a sharp and oroginal story with solid and strong characters. Louis Koo and Daniel Wu are sensational, they give gritty and terrific performances. It`s gripping and keeps you on the edge of your seat through every tension-filled and electrifying moment until its explosive final shot.
Derek Yee's Triple Tap isn't without blemishes, but it still ends up as an acceptable Hong Kong crime thriller.The introduction sets up the conclusion, in turn making it somewhat predictable. What's left is the lengthy, nearly 2 hour, task of getting there. A good portion of the first half plays out like a political drama and it isn't until the second half that the film feels like a crime thriller. It is the first half that spends too much time delaying the inevitable, while not doing a sufficient job with some of the characters and character relationships.Triple Tap revolves around two sharpshooters and the story does focus on this. The action does the same, but quantitatively it does lack. In fact, only the beginning and the ending contain the notable action segments. The rest of the film is more of a cat and mouse game between the good and bad characters.The cast is sound and so are the performances. Louis Koo and Daniel Wu easily fit into their respective roles, while Li Bingbing and Alex Fong provide good supporting performances.Triple Tap may lack in the action department and feel a bit lengthy; however the acting and decent enough story stop this from becoming a waste of time.
A decent caper movie with the backdrop of a sharpshooter competition. The acting is okay, The story is interesting and presents a reasonable twist that is foreshadowed so is not surprising. The movie is too long by twenty minutes.
