Watched: Breaking News

I decided to watch another Johnnie To movie. Breaking News is a typical To Gangster Flick. The Plot is about a Team of Gangsters getting chased by the Police after their Heist went wrong. And there begins a cat-and-mouse game inside a Building.

To tried to do something new with the Plot being wrapped around a news setting, the Police Force captures a live feed to show the Media that HK Police have everything under control.

In the end it’s really just a generic Movie. Not bad but nothing which will stay in your Memory. To clearly has made better movies.

When an ambulatory TV news unit live broadcasts the embarrassing defeat of a police battalion by five bank robbers in a ballistic showdown, the credibility of the police force drops to a nadir. While on a separate investigation in a run-down building, detective Cheung discovers the hideout of the robbers. Cheung and his men have also entered the building, getting ready to take their foes out any minute. Meanwhile, in order to beat the media at its own game, Inspector Rebecca decides to turn the stakeout into a breaking news show.
