The third in Gordon Chan's series on law enforcement squads in Hong Kong. This one starts out focusing on the SB (Special Branch) led by Anthony Wong that is a MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE type squad of elite police. Like THE FINAL OPTION, we see much of the members home life, especially that of team member Julian Cheung, and the strain the job causes on his relationship with his girlfriend Carman Lee, who has just moved in with him. When tragedy strikes the team, the S.B. unit is disbanded and the members try out for the G4 branch, who turn out to be sort of like the secret service. Not only is Julian's relationship in trouble, but he is involved in a love triangle at work where colleague Monica Chan adores him, and his other colleague adores her. Everything comes to a head a big finale. The script for this movie is a much more solid effort from Chan Hing-Kai than what he did with FIRST OPTION. The character development is deeper and the speculation on what drives a policeman is not as silly as it was in the previous film. Michael Wong makes a thankfully brief appearance playing essentially the same character. The two main drawbacks of the film are the sudden change in focus from the SB to the G4, and the somewhat lacking acting skills of Julian Cheung. He comes across as just a plastic victim, never taking charge of his life or seeming sure of what he's doing. I certainly don't buy him as an elite law enforcement agent.
