Section: Panorama / Late Night


A retiring detective uses unorthodox methods in order to capture Wong Po, the leader of a criminal organization.

Busy director Wilson Yip applies an old-school approach to this tale of police going after the ruthless and seemingly uncatchable Po. First seen in 1994 arranging the execution of the prosecuting attorney and family of one of his victims from his jail cell, Po gets away scot-free. He’s the nemesis of copper Chan, who learns after three years of futilely trying to nab Po that he has cancer and must retire from the police force. A terrific, brawny push to revive Hong Kong hand-to-hand fighting in a police thriller, SPL is an all-star smackdown that will get fans salivating. Although the police elements are drawn with nods to early John Woo, the main event is the action delivered by legend Sammo Hung and new star Wu Jing as crime lord and henchman, respectively. RK
