Synopsis:
In a world where justice is bought with blood and sacrifice is a way of life, Tong, a hard-edged detective (Nicholas Tse-Dragon), puts his reputation on the line to hunt down the underworld's most dangerous kingpin. However, on the same fateful day that he puts his target behind bars, his life is shattered by tragedy and the shedding of innocent blood. Devastated by painful memories, he languishes until his prior nemesis orchestrates the kidnapping of a lawyer's daughter to manipulate evidence that might convict him. Now, in a deadly race against time, Tong must come face-to-face with a relentless contract-killer, and find the strength to fight for one last chance at redemption...

Unmissable action thriller - Beast Stalker review by Alphaville

Spoiler Alert
02/11/2021

This never-dating 2008 action thriller pits a charismatic cop against the sympathetic kidnapper of a 5yo girl. The cop is tormented by a car chase that ended badly while the partially-sighted kidnapper is doing the job for money for his paraplegic wife (equally sympathetic). Your loyalties may sometimes even switch to the baddie, despite the fact he’s going to kill the little girl.

Director Dante Lam films with a restless camera and boundless energy. A bit too much shaky-cam to begin with, but it soon settles down into engrossing visuals. The plot is brilliantly put together and only reveals its full complexity in an ending you’ll never guess. The action sequences, on foot or in cars, are exciting. The dramatic scenes in-between are not the usual fillers but emotional rollercoasters that drive the plot forward. All-in-all, one of the best Hong Kong actioners of all time.
