Louis Koo, the father joined the police and tried to find his kidnapped daughter. This is the first time that I could see Koo with a lot of fight scenes in a movie. The Action Director was Sammo Hung Kam Bo. This is an excellent movie with outstanding performance of all stars.

The story had some character, as did the main actor, Louis Koo, playing the father looking for his missing daughter. Although impressive in some ways, in others it was not, as I just don't like fight scenes resorting to cables and wires to make a scene. I just don't think it is needed to bring quality filming to the film, as there is plenty of evidence in this film to show how it can be done.
Director, Wilson Yip (Ip Man trilogy, with #4 in post-production), makes a decent attempt in examining the paradoxes of life and death, and of whom can claim such power.
There is a special appearance by Tony Jaa (Ong-Bak trilogy; 2015's Furious 7, and Sha po Lang 2: aka Kill Zone 2; XXX: Return of Xander Cage: 2017), as a policeman, and the famed action director, Sammo Kam-Bo Hung.
There is 4 segments of 2 minute bonus material, that has interviews with the director and actors involved. One segment pays tribute to "brother Hung," with great respect.

A grand old gravity-defying chop-socky policier albeit with brains and an acute sense of tragedy to go with the flying kicks and rapid fire fisticuffs. Moving along at a breakneck speed, director Wilson Yip never lets up on the tension despite the few maudlin flashbacks and some overpowering dramatics that nevertheless seem germane to the genre. The story is cohesive, if somewhat fantastic, but it’s the choreographed bedlam that keeps you in your seat. Yip’s cast flip, fly, and spin in one martial arts scrap after another grabbing everything from beach umbrellas to fire extinguishers in order to beat the daylights out of one another yet he never wavers from the storyline for very long. A fast and exciting no-brainer that whizzes by like a stray bullet (or butcher knife).
