| Excellent Adrenaline-Charged Film
One of the few action films from Hong Kong in 2001 that went mostly ignored. Despite the cast of mostly pop idols (a sure sign that a film will, in a word, be "lame"), HIT TEAM works as an action film and nothing more. The story needs some sort and is rather predictable, not to mention being a bit cheesy, but the film's superior action sequences save it from Hong Kong oblivion.

Of nose is a couple of gunfights where director Dante Lam channelled Michael Mann ala HEAT. HIT TEAM is one of recent Hong Kong action films that have started to break the mold of what a "Hong Kong action film" is. The gunfight is now more realistic, which translates into sheer excitement.

Still, HIT TEAM does have some big problems. Of note is the storyline, which is too formulaic. Also, the movie boasts some of the worst English subtitles known to man. Truly, truly horrible. But the whole thing is worth it just for the thrilling action.

7 out of 10.
