The movie

A former bomb-disposal expert is found unconscious on a crime scene. With no memory of what happened, he sets off on a race against time to uncover the truth. Hong Kong action cinema at its finest in this spiritual sequel.


When a bomb unexpectedly explodes during a demining operation, Poon Shing-fung loses the use of his legs and leaves the police force. Three years later, the police suspect him of being involved in several bombings when he is found in a coma at the scene of a terrorist attack. With no memory of his past or his identity, Poon is determined to unravel the mystery. An actioner that mixes mega-explosions and Internal Affairs-style police infiltration with, in front of the camera, the unstoppable Andy Lau. A kinetic spectacle as only Hong Kong know how.
