A hero cop accidentally leads his team into a trap from which he is the only survivor. Drowning his guilt in booze, he is eventually assigned a new younger partner who turns out to have his own secrets.
Contains connections to previous "Police Story" movies. A double-decker bus action scene is reminiscent of a similar sequence in Police Story 2 (1988). Jackie Chan's character's name in the "Police Story" franchise and this movie is Inspector Chan.
Oh! That's my man!
When we see the police hanging from the ropes from above, the ropes are visibly not under tension, showing that the actors are actually supported by safety lines.
The American DVD version removes a small part of the epilogue where Zheng Xiaofeng as a child is brought back by Inspector Chan to the HK-Mainland border. It ends just after Chan says to Zheng that life can be unfair but he must grow up to be good man (and the concluding repeated voice-over of Zheng introducing himself is moved to the end of this scene).
