On the Edge [2006]


Director Herman Yau teams with car stunt specialist and action icon Bruce Law to warp an interesting cop/triad thriller with some sparking, state-of the art car chase sequences that will put you "on the edge" of your seat. The screenplay by Yau, Jacky Wong Oi-Sang, and the already immortal Zexin [Papa Loves You, The Wild Ninja] looks at the difficult time that many police officers go through when they have finished with their undercover duties. Nick Cheung does a nice job with his role of an undercover cop trying to transition back to the straight life. Emotionally charged at every turn, Yau and cinematographer Puccini Yu create a visual palette to express a narrative that will seduce your mind as well as your eyes.
