Average HK thriller
30 March 2005 | by kevbeeSee all my reviews

This is very average fare, although it starts well with a good set piece at an airport and a subsequent rooftop chase. After that the pace of the film slows considerably and limps along until the final reel. Sadly, the two main leads are pretty leaden. I have always found Alex Fong a rather lacklustre leading man so his performance didn't come as much of a surprise, but Simon Yam is an actor who can turn in a very creditable show of talent but here he seems pretty pedestrian and disinterested.

The cast are not helped by a plot that demands that the audience has their tongue planted firmly in their cheek and has some glaringly bad plot holes near the end of the film. But if you can put up with all of that, then maybe you can survive the 90 odd minutes duration. Not one of HK's finest, I'm sad to say.
