‘Did you get this job so you could speed legally?’

Seasoned cop Lo (action film legend Anthony Wong) and his rookie partner Cheung (Shawn Yue) are members of an elite squad of Hong Kong police dedicated to the highspeed pursuit of criminals. On the verge of retirement, Lo gets behind the wheel one last time to help Cheung chase down criminals planning a big heist. The car-chase scenes effortlessly pull you into the driver’s seat in this gripping film produced by action auteur Johnnie To.
