YesAsia Editorial Description

Recognized for Best Original Screenplay at the 40th Golden Horse Awards and Best Director at the 23rd Hong Kong Film Awards, Johnnie To's brilliant 2003 police drama PTU patrols the dark, sleepless streets of Hong Kong over one very eventful night. With hardboiled anti-heroes and thrilling gunfights aesthetically washed in noir colors, PTU is a quintessential police triad drama from the master of the genre. Donning the signature black beret of the Hong Kong Police Tactical Unit, Simon Yam (Election) gives a perfectly steely and charismatic performance as a PTU officer on a coldly determined mission to find a missing police gun. Johnnie To regulars Lam Suet, Raymond Wong, Maggie Siu, and Ruby Wong play fellow police officers, while veterans Lo Hoi Pang and Eddy Ko face off as triad leaders.

The night starts like any other as PTU sergeant Mike (Simon Yam) and his squad begin their patrol. They come across Officer Lo (Lam Suet) who was beaten up in the streets by triads, and woke up to find his gun is missing. Afraid of disciplinary action, Lo desperately asks Mike for help recovering his gun before daybreak. While Mike and his team sweep the midnight haunts and usual suspects for leads, a gang war slowly breaks out on the streets over the murder of triad leader Bald Head's (Lo Hoi Pang) son. As the night unfolds, threads cross, events escalate, and the line between cop and crook blurs as all sides draw blood for the same reason: protecting their own.

What was the director thinking? Customer Review Rated Bad 0 - 0 out of 10
This movie surprised me. I thought something was going to happen. I thought there would be a little more action. I thought the plot would be better. Instead it moved so slowly and dragged on with the cops walking around. Finally the bad guy was killed.

Not really my taste Customer Review Rated Bad 3 - 3 out of 10
I don't know what made me dislike this film, maybe I had my hopes a bit to high considering its a J.Too film.

Anyhow I did not really like this film, it was very slowpaced in my point of view in a boring way, Too most often makes me just love the dialog, characters etc. but something was missing in this one.
A few tasteful scenes were made but they can't raise the bar considering I thought too much was just a waste of time.

Not a film I recommend by Too, go watch Exiled or something instead.

Different Customer Review Rated Bad 7 - 7 out of 10
I must admit it's quite different from other police force movies i have ever seen, but i found it so annoying that all the trouble is because of a lost gun!!

Action is ok but not that good. Borrow if i were you.

An edgy, gripping thriller Customer Review Rated Bad 9 - 9 out of 10
"PTU" is a terrific film about the extraordinary steps a police officer takes to cover a mistake made by a fellow officer.

The movie gets the dark and moody atmospherics of a thriller just right and will keep you on the edge of your seat with its fast-paced series of white-knuckle brushes with danger.

Simon Yam was born to play the intense, unpredictable cop he inhabits here. And those scenes of his PTU squad patrolling the steaming dark streets of Hong Kong will leave an indelible impression. Very, very highly recommended.

Do Not Understand Customer Review Rated Bad 7 - 7 out of 10
Don't understand its nomination because didn't think it's such a great movie. My deepest inpression is the cohesiveness among the PTU comrades although there were disagreements. Thumbs up for Maggie and Simon. Have always like them and their acting talent. If the movie won an award, I think it is more an art piece than a movie.
