Hubby and I caught another movie over the weekend – The Sniper 神鎗手 (2009), a HK movie.

Director is Dante Lam and the writer is Jack Ng.  This is the second movie they made together; the first one was The Beast Stalker (2008).  Cinematography is by Cheung Man-Po and Editing is by Angie Lam.

Cast includes Richie Ren 任賢齊 as Fong 方克明, Huang Xiaoming 黃曉明 as Ling 凌靖, Edison Chen 陳冠希 as O J 陳新偉/O仔, Bowie Lam 林保怡 as Shan 山哥, Jack Kao 高捷 as Ip 葉滔 etc.

This movie revolves around Fong, a lead in the sniper team of the Special Duties Unit (SDU), a subdivision of the Hong Kong Police, his archenemy Ling, and Fong’s protege, OJ.  Shan’s role bridges these 3 characters – he’s the only person who can talk to each and all of them at ease without irritating / aggrevating the other.  Ip is the bad guy in the movie.  He set Fong and Ling apart – once in the same sniper team, Ip’s the trigger Fong and Ling went the opposite way.

I don’t fancy guns but this movie managed to keep my interest level up.  The story is very well written.  The actors are very good – all of them deliver a superb performance.  Dante Lam does a great job as a director.  The tone and pace are very well controlled.  I enjoyed this movie.

(Ladies – eye candy alert’s in effect  🙂  )

I hope this movie will earn this team some awards in the coming year.

    CTV has a new series (on its second season) call Flash Point, it is very enjoyable and very well crafted. You can check out the episodes on CTV if you like. Here is a link to the online free episodes (accessible in Canada),
