Drug War
Johnnie To heads to the mainland for this tense, absorbing thriller starring the excellent Sun Hong Lei as a dedicated cop trying to take down a complex drug operation that stretches across both sides of the border. Louis Koo is the middle man forced to work with the cops, but tensions remain high, from the early expository sequences of muling through the intricate surveillance to the film’s ferociously bloody climax. To hasn’t been this good in years.
