YesAsia Editorial Description

Acclaimed director Soi Cheang (Accident) again works with producer Johnnie To on his latest Milkyway production Motorway, a high-octane crime thriller featuring exhilarating car chases and jaw-dropping stunts, choreographed by Chin Kar Lok (The Viral Factor), on the tight and narrow roads of Hong Kong. Initial D stars Shawn Yue and Anthony Wong lead the cast as elite traffic cops cruising the city in unmarked police cars to uphold order and justice. They are joined in the highly entertaining and engaging road actioner by Guo Xiaodong, Gordon Lam, Barbie Hsu, Michelle Ye, Josie Ho, and a fleet of powerful muscle cars.

The Hong Kong police force has formed a stealth squad to deal with road crimes and speed demons. Chan Cheong (Shawn Yue) is a rookie driver of the team. The hot-headed young cop doesn't quite get along with his veteran partner Lo Fung (Anthony Wong) and, as a result, their operations often end in failure. One day, while on duty, Cheong encounters the triad's legendary getaway driver Jiang Xin (Guo Xiaodong) and manages to arrest him with surprising ease. Turns out it's all in Xin's plan - he got himself jailed in order to break out of it along with his convicted associate. Though the police chase after them in full force, Xin eventually gets away with his superior driving skills...

Hong Kong Version Blu-ray comes with special features including trailer, making-of, and behind-the-scenes.

Diesel in the Dust Customer Review Rated Bad 8 - 8 out of 10
No doubt “Motorway” is for fans of the racing fraternity specially the Fast and the Furious movie franchise (which I also like). Although Shawn's character Chan Cheung is a headstrong rookie cop, he certainly seems to have Brian O’Conner racing blood in his veins, too, by Chan Cheung’s passion for his job within an undercover car chasers unit, specialising in speed breaking and illegal car racing. Ironic he’s a racer cop chasing the racers. But here its not mere speeding tickets to dish out, but serious concerns when getaway gangster driver Jiang Xin (Guo Xaiodong) tricks speed cop Chan Cheung in a car chase incident to get himself arrested and sent to the cop shop, all as a plot to bust out gangster felon Wong (Li Hai-Tao) in a two man break out/shoot out at Chan Cheung’s police jail. The felons escape in Jiang’s getaway vehicle with Chan Cheung giving chase but by Jiang’s exotic driving skills enables him to manoeuvre and twist around tight L shaped bends amidst narrow alleyways of HK suburbia, and thus quickly escape, whereas Chan Cheung unable to manoeuvre his car around the bends gets stuck solid amongst waste bins and brick walls. The gangster escape plot is part of a rendezvous with Danish gangsters in a high priced jewel theft. Chan Cheung’s mentor Lo Fung (Anthony Wong) after nearly getting himself killed in a past speed car chase accident when burning the wheel to catch Jiang Xin, refuses to be involved in any more motorway chases and awaits his retirement years. But when Chan Cheung needs L shaped turn tactics to catch Jiang Xin, veteran Lo Fung decides to step back in the seat and teach Chan Cheung some of his nifty acceleration, break and manoeuvring tricks, in the hope that CC can catch the crafty speed king Jaing. Cheung certainly needing plenty CC acceleration!

‘Motorway’ is fast paced car action and although the typical us and them cops and robbers violence, it’s car stunt work can make it worthy of its type. Plot is also pretty decent. Good to see Shawn, Anthony and Barbie in a flik again, too. Hopefully Barbie’s next movie will find herself in a more central role, as she only as sporadic bits here. As I listened to the UFO track Diesel in the Dust from their album Making Contact after watching ‘Motorway’, it seemed apt for this movie title. Certainly diesel raising the dust here in more ways than three. It was either that or ‘Driving Chan Cheung around the bend’….Anyway, not brilliant but good movie.

Speedy fun! Customer Review Rated Bad 10 - 10 out of 10
I loved this film! Great entertainment from start to finish. Some very solid acting from the whole cast. I would have liked to have seen a bit more of barbie hsu but you cant everything. Some very good stunt driving and a decent story line make this a must see film. The blu ray picture is very good. The audio is a real treat as its a genuine 96khz dolby true 7.1 soundtrack.
