"A storm is heading to the city, and with it comes another occurrence so destructive, it vows to bring down everything it touches. A crew of seasoned criminals led by the notorious Nam (Hu Jun), armed with high-powered weapons, pulls off another smooth and violent armored car heist in broad daylight in a crowded street. Whoever tries to get in their way, they will show no mercy. This puts the police force to shame and humiliation. A hardboiled senior police inspector Lui (Andy Lau), hot on the trails of Nam and his tight crew, determines to put an end to this madness that causes the lives of innocent people. But he soon comes face to face with the cruel reality that the usual police tactics are too futile to send these armed thieves behind bars. Extreme crime requires extreme justice, even if it means crossing his moral line. Tou (Lam Ka Tung), an ex-con desperate to leave his criminal past behind, volunteers to be Lui's snitch in exchange for a fresh start with her girlfriend Bing (Yao Chen). But little does he know what hellish situation he's getting himself into. Written by Production"--IMDb.

Great action and exciting film ! With lots of fight scenes, gun battle with heavy weapons and explosions. Headed by Andy Lau.

Does alot better job at being a crime thriller than anything from the western countries in the last decade.

Watch this as an action urban warfare movie and its spectacular CGI of blow them ups in the narrow streets of Hong Kong. The well worn magnum-force police story was just an excuse to show off the camera work of heavy weapons, flipping cars, explosions and 007 stunts.

Good cop turns bad cop then turns good cop again, but lastly turns bad cop. That is it, I promise... then turns...
Just watch the gun battle and fight scenes!

sort of standard fare police chasing the bad guys action movie. A few deaths of innocents add to shock value, and a couple of good action sequences/fight scenes, but mostly formulaic.

Andy is always very good. The movie is just like any other police crime drama ( English or otherwise) so there is nothing too different . But note, the action , the photography, the sound, is second to none. stunts are top notch.

Great action, lots of explosion and gun fights, only spoiled by a poor script.

Look! If you started from here and did not find anything , you can rewind further to look more. Before they got in the car and wore face masks, search frame by frame. Check all the cameras
from before the incident.

Do you remember what the teachers said? "To every good side of a person, there is a bad. Doesnt make the person evil."

you know i often visit the morgue to see the bodies. They speak to me. They are not supposed to die. If today I let a criminal go, there are more innocent people tomorrow that will die . That 's why I became a cop. I do not care if the perpetrator is my old friend, my boss, or even my mom.
