Saving Mr. Wu is terrific fun as a crime thriller, with great photography and tense action sequences. Yet it truly excels in its quieter moments ...
Ding has done an outstanding job re-creating the events and conveying the complexity and prudence of the cops' investigative chess moves.
The director deploys all the familiar tropes with an assured forcefulness that makes the movie crackle with a rough energy.
It's a tight, fast-moving, entertaining cop drama that does away with the criminal mastermind clichés to show a more realistic portrait of a kidnapping and police investigation energized by car chases, flashing sirens, and strike force action.
But for a film where the audience already knows the ending, Saving Mr. Wu manages to satisfy and excite.
While all the attention is naturally on Mr Wu and Lau, the film's true breakout star here is China actor Wang Qianyuan, who is vicious as the criminal mastermind.
This blend of abduction thriller and police procedural ... is an entertaining genre exercise that methodically reshuffles its timeline to fend off predictability.
Gleaming, elementally machined, Ding Sheng's "Saving Mr. Wu" stars Andy Lau in a crackling true-life thriller ... [T]he inevitable showdown... is cleanly choreographed.
