When Lau goes to listen to the "sampler" CD that's been dropped off for him, he presses the button on the player and we see the CD drawer close twice - first in the long-shot, and then in a close-up that starts from a fully-open position on the drawer. See more »

A seriously refreshing police thriller that cranks up the tension to the
max. There's no overblown gunplay or buddy cop crap here, this baby is
as a drum and will have your nails down to the quick. Superb performances,
tight script and tense direction make this a winner in every department.
Pick it up if you can, it's fantastic.
