Audience Reviews for Kei tung bou deui: Juet lou (Tactical Unit: No Way Out)

½

The 2nd of the series. I think it's slightly better than the 1st one, but is too depressing. As an audience, it's not fun to watch the weak get suffered by both mobsters and cops. There should have been a redemption.

Lawrence Ah Mon, brings the characters of PTU back for another crime drama adventure in Tactical Unit: No Way Out.

The "Tactical Unit" series is a follow up to Johnnie To's PTU. This film is the second film of this series. As usual, the story is stand alone, which makes this one watchable without having seen PTU or the first film in the series, Tactical Unit: The Code.

Unlike its predecessors, the plot for this movie shies away from the tactical unit characters and focuses a little more on one of the gangsters. This is where the film falters, because a good portion of the middle spends too much time on this character and creates a bit too much drama. Meanwhile, the tactical unit characters fade into the background until the latter parts of this 90 minute picture.

The action is pretty slim, which is not surprising, since this is how these films are written. It is the characters and story that carry this picture.

The usual suspects, Simon Yam, Maggie Siu, and Lam Suet return again to reprise their roles. Kwok Cheung Tsang steps in as the side character with too much emphasis. His acting is quite good though. Wu Li also plays a major supporting character.

At the end of the day, Tactical Unit: No Way Out is a decent watch for fans of the previous films.
