Breaking News ★★★★

Great tone shifts
Amazing opening long single take with wonderful blocking etc
(Sidenote: Johnny To + HK cinema must have  a few studio streets where they always stage their urban gunfights)
Unlike other I am a fan of the music and the moments of sentiment
The media angle is potentially underdeveloped but still creates an interesting veneer over the genre proceedings without ever fully taking over
Performances good as well here
Setting up certain romantic throughline creative another layer of tension I enjoyed
