Drug War Blu-Ray Review


Synopsis: Manufacturing just 50 grams of meth in China will earn you a death sentence. Timmy Choi (Louis Koo) just got caught making tons. Now he's in the custody of Captain Zhang (Sun Honglei), and has one chance to avoid execution - turn informant and help the cops bring down the powerful cartel he's been cooking for. Over the next 72 sleepless hours, the sting spins out of control, the line between duty and recklessness is blurred, and it becomes unclear who actually has the upper hand. From Johnnie To, master of the Hong Kong crime thriller, comes an unnerving thrill ride through the modern criminal underworld.

Review: There are a few countries that really do action right and China is one of them.  Drug War is a frenzy of action, drama and crime.  There are times when the film resembles Pulp Fiction in it's dark portrayl of the drug world and times when its supercop.  The tone is very dark and the action is spot on.  This is one of the rare films that I give high marks to without any notable actors on staff.  This one is perfect for any fan of the action/crime genre!

Interest Range: Action, Drama
