Cold War

It has been years since I last went to cinema to watch a Chinese movie, especially a Hongkong movie.  Hongkong movie equals nothing but crap in my mind, for a long time.  Cold War breaks that stereo-type.

The story is very well written.  A brutal war is going on, but it is just like the under current in the sea, you can hardly see it from the surface.  Enemy is faceless, every one can be a friend or a foe, that's what the two deputy chiefs of police of Hongkong are facing.

The audiences are like riding a plot roller coaster, when you are pushed to the very top of the plot, there is a sudden twist of the story, the unthinkable happens.

Story aside, the actors' skillful acting adds a lot of points too.  Three time Hongkong film award winner Tony Leung Kah Fai and Heavenly King Aron Kwok both did an excellent job.

If you have not watched this movie, I would recommend you to watch it.

My rating:  8/10
