YesAsia Editorial Description

Running Out Of Time

From acclaimed director Johnnie To comes Running out of Time, a gripping thriller starring two Hong Kong heavyweights, Andy Lau and Sean Lau Ching Wan! Andy Lau is Cheung, an ace thief diagnosed with a terminal illness. With his last days closing in, Cheung embarks on an elaborate heist, and invites the determined, intelligent Inspector Ho (Sean Lau Ching Wan) along for the chase! As the cat-and-mouse game begins, Ho has a hard time fathoming Cheung's motives, as it takes all of his ingenuity and energy just to keep up with Cheung's unpredictable moves. Still, the top cop is more than willing to follow the charismatic criminal to the end of his life, and he just might have to!

Andy Lau won his first Best Actor Award for his charismatic, compelling performance in Running out of Time, one of the most richly entertaining Hong Kong thrillers of the late nineties. Director Johnnie To creates an irresistible cop-criminal dynamic between his two stars, and plays the situations out to an unexpected, satisfying end. Running out of Time is an acclaimed action-thriller that has already entertained and thrilled audiences worldwide!

Running Out Of Time 2

One of the most popular hits in Johnnie To's extraordinary filmography, Running out of Time (1999) undoubtedly set the benchmark in Hong Kong crime capers. It was followed two years later by an even more slickly produced sequel co-directed by To and his disciple Law Wing Cheong, who would go on to become a brilliant director in his own right. Lau Ching Wan reprises his role as a persistent policeman to face off against another righteous robber, this time played by Ekin Cheng. Co-starring Kelly Lin, Hui Siu Hung, Lam Suet, and Ruby Wong, the tight-paced action thriller sequel won Best Film Editing and Best Action Choreography at the 39th Golden Horse Awards.

In Running out of Time 2, police senior inspector Ho Sheung Sang (Lau Ching Wan) is challenged to a game of cat-and-mouse by a mysterious thief (Ekin Cheng), who has hatched an elaborate plan to extort a king's ransom out of insurance company executive Teresa (Kelly Lin). The elusive thief always manages to stay one step ahead thanks to his bottomless bag of magic tricks, and in order to catch him, Ho must figure out his next move - and the motive behind his game.
