Blue Lightning

Despite having two of the most experienced veterans in the cop drama genre with Danny Lee and Tony Leung Ka-Fai, Blue Lightning fails to become anything more than an average release. Perhaps it is because the stars are so familiar with this type of material that the movie comes off as a bit limp, because most everyone involved looks more than a little bored with the proceedings -- and the viewer sitting through this film will probably be as well.

Surprisingly watchable, although reasonably standard fare. In places it has a noir feel, but overall it's really not.

It has the excellent child actor Wong Kwan-Yuen (actually does his own dubbing too it would appear).

Danny Lee overacts in places, but is good at what he does.

Summary: ZZZZZZZZZZ Oh, is it over?

VERY standard fare has Danny Lee as a drunk cop who has to look after his son after his wifie is brutally killed. Danny over acting is embarassing to watch at times ( if your not laughing)
This could have been good if they used the son for an urban baby cart angle or something but the kid is crying most of the time. I guess I would be to if I was stuck in this movie. My rule for HK movies is simple- don't bore me. Blue Lightning broke the rule. Beast Cops did too, so what do I know?

An intriguing murder mystery involving a high class "call girl"operations, top police officials and a gung ho cop ready to risk it all for justice!
