Two cops investigating separate cases involving a murdered prostitute and gun smugglers uncover an explosive web of corruption, malice and disgrace in this high octane action thriller from Hong Kong. —TIFF
Renowned action film director Lam started his filmmaking career in the 1980s in production, acting and action choreography. In 1997, he made his directing debut in Option Zero. A year later, he won the Best Director at the Hong Kong Film Awards for Beast Cops (co-directed with Gordon Chan). His subsequent works, like Jiang Hu: The Triad Zone, Hit Team, Tiramisu, Twins Effect, Naked Ambition, Heat Team and Love on the Rocks, have been consistently embraced by critics. Famous for his thorough research, his movies often infused with a strong sense of reality. —asianmediawiki
Taking liberal influence from Paul Greengrass and Michael Mann, Dante Lam's filmmaking style may not be unique in the world but he's certainly one of a kind in Hong Kong. A gritty, well-told story with shootouts that will make your adrenaline spike, "Fire of Conscience" delivers what is without a doubt one of the best Hong Kong thrillers I've seen since 2002's "Infernal Affairs."
Válida por ser un regreso al estilo de acción típica del cine hongkonés de mediados de los ochenta y principios de los noventa. Donde sus representantes más conocidos fueron John Woo, Tsui Hark y Ringo Lam, cuyo hijo es quien firma esta película. Y aunque Dante Lam parece cómodo con las coreografías y las caracterizaciones el guión se ve medio flojo en lo que respecta a la historia. Es por eso que no trasciende.
