notorious thief, Cheung Tan, has now been released from a French prison.
Soon afterwards, he immediately plots a new heist of valuable European
jewels with his partners Xiao Bao and Ye Hong. Meanwhile, French detective
Pierre - a man who has dedicated his life to thwarting Cheung's activities,
responsible for putting him away after the Louvre robbery - decides
it's time to stop the gang of thieves for good.
Lau and Jean Reno together in a cat-and-mouse thriller would be enough
to warrant enthusiasm for this film. Then add the stylish direction
of Stephen Fung [actor (GEN-X
OF FURY)] plus a groundbreaking performance from Taiwanese beauty
Shu Qi (best actress winner for the erotic THREE
TIMES), and it's easy to see why this motion picture became
a huge summer hit.
