Another great crime thriller from Hong Kong's master of the genre Johnnie To.
A brutal action thriller that keeps you hooked whole time without really getting bored.
This movie is so exciting, ingeniously staged and also written that the 107 minutes just flew by. The finale in particular knocked me off my feet.
But even if Drug War is an excellent film, we still feel that Johnnie To had to direct with Chinese censorship on his back. I am in awe that Johnnie To was able to sneak such a subversive film through the strict Mainland China censors. It’s remarkable.
