Rome 2013 – Closing Night Film
Lifelong friends Tin (Sean Lau), Chow (Louis Koo) and Wai (Nick Cheung) all work for the Hong Kong Police Department’s Narcotic Division. The three tough law enforcers would readily risk their lives for each other, but a dangerous mission in Thailand could put their brotherly bond to the test. Capturing notorious “Eight-Faced Buddha”, South East Asia’s most powerful drug lord, would give ambitious chief inspector Tin the promotion he has been working toward, while his loyal deputy Wai would be happy with a little more respect and glory. Chow strongly objects to the international mission, but he realizes that success could be his ticket to stop undercover work and live a normal life with his pregnant girlfriend.
In Thailand, Tin and Wai collaborate with local police to plan an operation to trap Eight-Faced Buddha through Chow’s undercover gang. The covert operation goes bad at the last minute, and a battle breaks out. The three friends are confronted by a tragic emotional dilemma…
Five years later, burdened with personal hardship, two friends are still seeking to revenge the loss of a third. Friendship turns into rivalry and brotherhood must be sacrificed once again. A war between good and evil unfolds, and there's no turning back!
Starring Sean Lau, Louis Koo and Nick Cheung – together on screen for the first time. An explosive action thriller with just as much emotional punch from the director of SHAOLIN, BIG BULLET, NEW POLICE STORY and A MOMENT OF ROMANCE.
