      Audience Member A very well made Hong Kong police thriller. The action sequences were exhilarating without being too over the top, the acting and dialogue were believable and absorbing, and there was excellent pacing that kept the story continuously moving forward. The first part of the movie concerned a power struggle within the police department unique to the Hong Kong historical perspective. Unfortunately, the internal conspiracy and external investigations became a bit convoluted, as if they were trying to compress a lot of real time and analysis into a too short film time. The ending provides a nice segue to the sequel. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 01/24/23 Full Review Audience Member Twisty thriller finds a group of five police officers kidnapped and held for ransom by a hard group of mercenaries. But with the technological advances, the city wide surveillance, how could they pull it off? A mole in the police force. Not only that, the task force operation is at each other's throats, Internal Affairs is all over everyone, and everyone is a suspect. Cold War is pure pulp, but its fun pulp that takes itself just seriously enough to be taut and thrilling. That ending is a bit of a cliffhanger, but its okay because they finally got around to making a sequel. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 02/05/23 Full Review Audience Member Nothing groundbreaking about the story, but Cold War will go down as a classic Hong Kong cop movie. In a time where traditional Hong Kong cop movie is seen less and less, it is a breath of fresh air to see a film like Cold War to feature a predominantly local cast. The film itself is suspenseful and filled with good acting by almost the entire crew. Also liked that it is ambitious enough to insert a teaser for the next film at the end. You just know it when something is good. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/17/23 Full Review dave j Cold War is the code word of operation Rated 2 out of 5 stars 03/30/23 Full Review Audience Member The film is fairly intelligent, though the final conclusion doesn't maintain that standard. Cold War is for once however, a cop conspiracy that knows not to throw in too many twists, and for that, its a quality addition to the genre. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/08/23 Full Review Audience Member Good action movie overall, but, a little challenging to follow at times and especially with all the subtitles going fast. Interesting story-line that keeps you guessing who the bad guy is until the end, sequel should be good Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 01/13/23 Full Review Read all reviews Post a rating
