Acclaimed director Johnny To (The Heroic Trio) helms this intelligent, mind-boggling action thriller that became on of Hong Kong's biggest box office hits, with a great performance by Asia's top superstar Andy Lau that earned him Best Actor accolade at the 2000 Hong Kong Film Awards and co-starring Lau Ching Wan (Black Mask). Told by his doctor that he only has 2 weeks to live, Wah (Lau) decides to take on the entire police f-rce for the next 72 hours. Only Sang, a cool, analytical police negotiator, can see through Wah's agenda and stop him from carrying out his secret mission - or can he?
