Cold War

Synopsis: In Asia's safest city, the police have long been untouchable. However, on one fateful day approaching midnight in Hong Kong, police headquarters receives an anonymous call: a fully-loaded police van carrying the force's most advance equipment and five highly trained officers has disappeared off the grid. The hijackers appear to possess direct knowledge of police procedures so despite their tactics, the hijackers are always steps ahead. With no choice in sight, the police must meet a list of demands to ensure the hostages' release, which includes the delivery of a huge ransom. Any delay will cost lives. The clock is ticking...[Source: Yahoo! Singapore Movies]
At least a decent Chinese movie from Hong Kong. Highly rated as Infernal Affairs the second, the movie itself at least did not disappoint. With lots of twists that seems to stretch the police to their end, it requires a clear head to outdo the bad guys to finally bring them to justice. The movie is definitely not a one off show as a sequel seems to be in sight. Highly recommended to watch!
Rate: 8/10
