Description: As a Senior Inspector of the Narcotics Bureau Operation Unit, HEUNG WING (Miu Kiu Wai) profoundly abhors evil. He and WAI SAI-LOK (Raymond Lam) - Senior Inspector of the Intelligence Unit have closely co-operated with each other as peer mentors, frequently solving drug trafficking cases for the Police Force. During an operation to knock down the targets, SAI-LOK discovers clues that HEUNG WING is most likely the corrupt cop in a collusion conspiracy with drug dealers. Apart from launching a secret investigation into HEUNG WING, SAI-LOK is also alienated from him by the evil-willed Chief Inspector of the Operation Unit - PUN HOK-LAI (Ben Wong). Having undergone various disputes against each other, the long-term brotherly relationship between SAI-LOK and HEUNG WING appears full of contradictions. On the other hand, following an investigation, SAI-LOK falls in love with a snitch ? CHAN KA-PIK (Kate Tsui), who suffers from low self-esteem due to her humble beginning. Deliberately denying her affection to SAI-LOK, KA-PIK gives up on him so that his secret admirer - KO HEI-SUEN (Ella Koon), a rookie police officer, can have the chance, leading to a subtle relationship among the three. Feeling life is so dreary, KA-PIK ultimately digs her own grave by becoming a new generation of drug dealer, involved in drug trafficking and provoking the Police Force. With intense sorrow, SAI-LOK then joins forces with HEUNG WING against KA-PIK, waging a chain of bitter battles.
Good Police Drama.
This is a decent police action drama that comes with a good amount of suspense, plot-twists and good actors. Since this is a police drama that focuses on narcotics so expect suspense and twists. The actors threw out pretty good acting; Micheal Miu is finally back doing the villain (semi) role and Jin seems to going for broader role this time.
There are a few kinks with this drama though. Firstly, the story kicked off slow for me. Secondly, the romancing is rather bland and mostly illogical; it’s almost as if some pieces were not matched originally but later were duct-taped them together which, frankly, exacerbated my frustration. Lastly, I would have liked to have seen more character depth from some of the secondary leading actors/actress; the characters’ archetype is so shallow you basically summarize these people in 2 or less sentences.
In short: Good Police Drama, but Bad Romance.
