"An above average police story" - a review by timchuma

Tung Tung is on his first day of the job on Motorbike Cop Patrol when his partner is gunned down in an apparent gang hit. Not long after, a Police SDU operation goes arse up when they are blown up and bazookaed (8 members of the squad survive out of 32, with one 'slightly injured').

After much investigation, the police decide to replace the SDU squad they lost with top members from the police force in a special unit they will call the Best of the Best. The usual scenes follow of the new members being introduced to training (of which Tung is one), a stand out scene during this sequence is 'Kim's Game' (the weapons trainer), who gets them to memorise ten items in a box, then tells them to run 50 laps of the training ground.

Further into the training, Tung is assigned to a team with Coolman, who doesn't like him for some reason. Also, the head trainer Eagle decides to use real bullets during a training excercise, because "real bankrobbers use bullets" (the squad in training is using paintball ammo).

I'll let you see the rest yourself, but the new squad does finally get to go into action and it is worth all their training. I thought this was a fairly good movie, apart from the fact that most of the movie is taken up with the training of the new squad (there's plenty of action at the begining and end). I would probably recommend this film to people who like action or cop movies.

timchuma gives this movie 7 out of 10.
