***1/2. When the audience's empathy sways between the good guys and the bad guys, is it emotional manipulation or simply life itself? At least a recent Hong Kong cop movie that lingers in my head. Recommended.
Soddisfazione per questo grintoso thriller poliziesco made in Hong Kong, con buon spessore dei protagonisti e complessivamente in grado di ridare linfa al genere che da quelle parti si era un pò perso negli ultimi anni.
