JS Cheung (by Andy Lau), a Superintendent in Explosive Ordnance Disposal Bureau (EOD) of Hong Kong Police Force, went undercover seven years ago into the gang led by the most-wanted crime boss Peng Hong (by Jiang Wu). Cheung successfully uprooted the gang and arrested a few robbers including Hong's younger brother Biao. However, Hong was on the loose and he swore he'd be back for revenge. Seven years have passed and Hong kick starts his plan - a series of bomb attacks have sparked fear among Hong Kong citizens. To maintain law and order, Cheung must put Hong behind bars and he is ready to sacrifice his life to fight a tough battle with the ruthless bomber.
Andy Lau plays the head of the bomb dismantling division of the police who goes undercover to infiltrate a group of robbers who use bombs. This gang's careless actions when life is concern made this cop take drastic measures to bring them down. Because of this, the bad guy seeks revenge from this cop by taking his hostage negotiation to get his brother back very personal.
And the bad guy for this movie was really bad ass. Just that right touch of evil that only makes the good guy that is Andy Lau look better.
A very instance thriller that's very action packed, but there was also a sub story about Andy Lau's character finding love with a school teacher. It's rare that I've seen people kissing in Chinese Cinema. Maybe I'm watching the wrong movies, but I've seen Chinese action movies in which the lead star has girlfriends or wives, but they never touch each other, and even though I grew up in America were our action heroes go beyond touching the leading ladies, it was odd to watch Lau give so very long and romantic kisses to his leading lady.
But as interesting as that was, first and foremost,this was a great action movie from beginning to end. Worth seeing.
