YesAsia Editorial Description

In this media obsessed world, where information can be obtained from so many sources, what news contain the 'truth' and what qualifies to be the daily headline on A-1? With a cast of award winners including Angelica Lee, Anthony Wong and Tony Leung Ka Fai, they join forces to try and find out the truth behind the story!

Directed by Jordan Chan with Chung Gai-chang and produced by Fruit Chan, A-1 takes on the Hong Kong media, where getting to the truth behind a news story can prove dangerous and difficult, and exposes other stories that people in power would rather see buried for good! Ling (Angelica Lee) works as a fashion and trend reporter in a paper, whose boyfriend died in a car accident a day after their breakup. Anthony Wong and Eric Kok play debt collectors after Ling, but begin to help her seek the suspicious death of her boyfriend. At the same time, Ling's editor-in-chief (Tony Leung Ka Fai) begins to act strangely, insisting that Ling drop the investigation. At the same time, Ling realizes that her boyfriend was investigating a case right before his death involving a millionaire's son, who is on the verge of acquiring the newspaper she is working at. Is her boyfriend murdered and is her editor trying to suppress the truth?

This film tackles the media in a more realist light, discussing the intricate connections between the media, the law, and the outlaws. With a great supporting cast which includes idol Edison Chen, this is a refreshing and thought provoking film from Hong Kong this year.

      潮流版記者玲(李心潔)跟前男友Peter 分手後突然收到他撞車身亡的惡耗,令她傷心不已,以收數為生的飛(黃秋生)與馬仔(葛民輝)來向玲收數,飛在Peter 意外現場一口咬定他的死並非意外。玲半信半疑,而總編輯曾理時(梁家輝)的行徑突然變得怪異,她不禁相信的說話,並請他相助,一直暗戀玲的攝影記者基仔(陳冠希)也自動請纓,於是四人一起追尋真相。

      幾經調查後,他們相信富家子張承志跟事件有關,而處理此案的竟是飛的舊同僚阿唐(林家棟),令事情變得更複雜。玲終於找證據,遂趕回報館揭發這宗必定轟動社會新聞,卻發現張父已成功收購報館。究竟曾理時會否維護新聞自由,刊登這A1頭條?

      Ling(Lee) is a fashion columnist whose ex-boyfriend died in a car accident. Debt collectors Fei(Wong) and Ma (Kot) are eyewitnesses on the scene and Fei is certain that Peter's death is more than just an accident. The weird and suspicious act that Chief Editor Tsang (Leung) recently displays convinces Ling of what Fei says. Ling pleads for the assistance of both Fei and Ma. With Newspaper photographer Kei (Chen) also volunteering to help, the quartet embanks on a journey to track down the truth.

      As Ling gets hold of the leads that will unquestionably outrage the society once it hits the headline, the newspaper corporation, to her shock, has already been acquired by a tycoon, who now becomes her boss. After all, how much truth will tomorrow's headline news reveal?

    Awesome! Customer Review Rated Bad 9 - 9 out of 10
    This movie talks about what the real truth is and the obligation & attitude of the media when they convey the truth to the public, which haven't been the way it should be nowadays.

    Good actors, good script, good director & producers combined together brought an awesome movie.

    not interesting at all... Customer Review Rated Bad 3 - 3 out of 10
    hate to say it but this movie was boring. there was nothing interesting enough to grab your attention. i watched the whole movie hoping it would get good, but then the ending credits started rolling and i knew that i sat through a whole lot of nothing. its supposed to be a mystery but i'm not sure it was even solved. the acting was really good but there was nothing else there...

    Good story... wasted Customer Review Rated Bad 7 - 7 out of 10
    The meaning of the movie is great and meaningful.. but it is wasted by the horrible ending... hardly any suspense at all.. little action, drama, but there is mystery... but then the truth is not totally revealed at the end... and it's only for you to find out... so therefore you still wouldn't know a whole lot than from the beginning of the movie...
