I really wanted to like this movie. Great casting, story didn't seem that bad (it's genre after all) and production values are good. But somehow it's missing something, like so many HK movies after the handover. They are playing it safe, nothing special, nothing that makes you say "wow".
More on the nagging side - the constant propaghanda about HKs poice greatness is annoying.
Difficult one. Was goodish, but expectations were (maybe too) high.
Did not like the pace of the movie - found it too slow. The whole movie did not feel homogenous.
And some music (basically all rap music) and sound editing choices were downright horrible, e.g. 2pac in the shootout scene or Rick Ross...
I liked the cameos (as always) - damn Tom Savini got fat.
