Tough but vulnerable Michael Wong is the leader of the Flying Tigers, a commando-style police strike force that takes on a gang of international drug runners with the help of spunky young customs investigator Gigi Leung. One of the better Hong Kong action films made since the 1997 hand-over, this no-nonsense cop drama is packed with big-scale gun battles and plenty of explosions when not enmeshed in departmental infighting and individual soul searching. American-born Wong runs his unit like a self-sustaining army and has a hot-headed tendency to leap without authorization. Leung is too deferential and insecure to cut much of an authority figure, but she rises to the occasion in the bullet-splayed finale as the commandos and customs agents band together in a show of solidarity. It's a far cry from the slow-motion violence ballets of John Woo, but Gordon Chan's sober police drama fits right in with the tradition of Kirk Wong's smart, steely policiers like Crime Story and Organized Crime and Triad Bureau. Wong speaks mostly English in the Chinese language version and dubs himself in the English language edition. --Sean Axmaker
