Johnny To and Law Wing-Cheung's sequel to To's popular action film Running out of Time plunges the hostage negotiator hero of that film, Sang (Lau Ching-Wan), into a whole new adventure. In Running out of Time 2 Sang has been promoted to a dull desk job, but when Ken (Ekin Cheng), a suave art thief with talent for magic tricks and an array of heist plots up his sleeve, draws Sang into a hostage situation, the chase is on all over again. The bulk of the film is a high-stakes cat-and-mouse game, with Ken keeping one step ahead of Sang; his bumbling sidekick, Assistant Commissioner Wong Kai Fa (Hui Shiu-hung); and Teresa (Kelly Lin), a beautiful insurance executive with a lot to lose if Ken's most dastardly plan succeeds.
