Theft Under the Sun

It is good to see Michael Wong play a bad guy, but even as a bad guy he is pretty nice. In this movie a young undercover cop Cheung Chi Lam has infiltrated Wong’s gang , but when the police raid goes wrong Wong escapes. CCL’s supervisors are suspicious that he may have betrayed them and so suspend him.

During his suspension, he accidentally meets & joins up with Wong again. Wong treats him with more respect and friendship than do his fellow cops - so which side will he really be on ? Gigi Lai stars as CCL’s trashy girlfriend - but she does look quite fetching in her hotpants. Some decent action and far flung vistas as they go off to Mongolia to transact some business. A pretty feeble and unbelievable ending does not help this film. All in all a very so-so film.
