My Penny of View: Movie began with a fully loaded police car that carrying the most advance equipment and five trained police officers mysterious disappeared out of the grid. Later an anonymous call reached the police headquarter with a message of large ransom in order to release the hostages. Hence, the statement of Hong Kong as the Asia's the safest city would be tested. Sean and Waise fought to take charge of the Cold War, code for the rescue operation. Sean found Waise not suitable to take charge for the operation because his son was one of the hostages. What will happen to the hostages? Will Sean and Waise manage to save the hostages and retain the safety of Hong Kong?

Frankly speaking, not many quality Hong Kong movie in the recent years. I think this movie can be categorized as one of the good Hong Kong movie, but it still seems like lack of something if compared with Internal Affairs(无间道). Back to the movie, story line is quite straight forward. Police officers become hostages and it shows that the hijackers are not afraid of police. It's quite exciting when you find that are inner stories for the incident. The one you thought is the bad guy, end up is the good police to retain reputation of police force. Tony Leung and Aaron Kwok are seldom show up in the big screen nowadays, but I think Tony Leung make a better appearance of powerful police. Charlie Yeung is also another actress you hardly see these days. Any Lau make a special appearance. I think he will be better fit into the role of Aaron Kwok. Overall, it's one of the good movie recommended to watch during weekend.

Rating : ★★★☆☆
