Movie Info

Not to be confused with Fritz Lang's 1953 classic, this film is a gritty two-fisted police drama directed by Johnny To Kei-fung and Andrew Kam Yeung-wah. John Wong (Waise Lee Chi-hung) is a grizzled cop faced with quitting the force after an injury impairs his reaction time with a gun. He changes his mind when his co-worker and buddy -- who once saved his life -- is killed in Malaysia. Aided by his partner Kam (Phillip Kwok Tsui) along with rookie Lun (Matthew Wong Hin-mung), John ventures to Malaysia and soon figures out that shady businessmen Han Ching (Paul Chu Kong) and Ho Ka-nin (Sai-kit Yung) are responsible for the slaying. It turns out that John's friend was blackmailing the two with a film of Ho engaging in homosexual sex and Han with Ho engaging in illegal activities. Desperately trying to keep his drug enterprise afloat, Han was in turn blackmailing John's dead friend. ~ Jonathan Crow, Rovi
