This movie was in one of the "specials" bin at one of the local DVD outlets in Australia a couple of years ago. I figured that since I enjoy foreign movies I'd give it a try.
I was SO happy that I did. This movie is full of twists and turns and you never know what is going to happen next, except that there are some serious levels of action.
Without giving too much away, a police officer goes under deep cover to try and get some proof of the criminal activities of a Chinese Tong crimelord. The police officer has his entire background employment and personal history destroyed so no one in the police force knows that he is an undercover police officer.
He starts to work for the crime boss but also keeps in contact with a single captain of his old police precinct, who is the only one to know the truth as attempts are made to arrest the crime boss.
But, not too far into the movie, the plots and turns start to become evident and the question is, who do you trust, when you don't know who your real allies are ?
This is an exceptional movie which spawned both a sequel and a prequel.
The soundtrack is in Chinese and there are English sub-titles. If you can cope with reading sub-titles or, you can speak Chinese, then this movie is well worth adding to your movie collection.
All I now have to do is track down where I can get the next 2 movies here in Australia.
