Synopsis: Donnie Yen Ji-Dan as Inspector Ma Kwan Sammo Hung Kam-Bo as Wong Po Simon Yam Tat-Wah as Inspector Chan Kwok Chung Jacky Wu Jing as Jack Liu Kai-Chi as Detective Lok Kwun Wah Danny Summer as Detective Kwok Tsz Sum Ken Chang as Detective Lee Wai Lok Austin Wai Tin-Chi as Detective Cheung Chun Fei Timmy Hung Tin-Ming as Drug Trafficker Simon Yam is Senior Inspector Chan, a hard boiled cop with a raging grudge. Back in 1994, Chan was caught in a car-on-car smash-em-up that took down a key criminal witness and his wife. The one who benefited: triad Wong Po (Sammo Hung). The couple’s young daughter survived, and Chan now cares for her. Years later, Po has evolved since that time, becoming more and more of a kingpin and growing increasingly untouchable. Chan can’t walk away without setting things right, but they have nothing on him. Knowing Po was behind the murder and destruction of evidence that orphaned his adopted daughter, Chan is torn by doing what he knows is right, yet he manages to keep his actions within the law despite temptation. Enter Inspector Ma (a tan and eternally posing Donnie Yen), who’s supposed to take over Chan’s unit when the still-angry Chan steps down in three days. Ma might be seen as a by the books cop, but he wasn’t always like that and the escalating confrontation between Chan and Po tests his resolve to stay out of the shadow that haunts him. Chan’s three subordinates (Liu Kai-Chi, Danny Summer, and Ken Chang) are also rightfully pissed off, and are willing to go to extreme lengths to take down Po before Chan retires. When Ma realizes the steps these guys are willing to take to achieve justice, his temper flares up too. It’s that same resolve that causes Chan and Ma to not see eye to eye on things when they manage to grab Po, but they won’t be able to keep him. Meanwhile, Po is pissed at all these cops who keep bothering him. With time sifting through the proverbial hour glass both men’s integrity is tried as Po’s patience wears thin- the result has bloody consequences.
