| The Suspect (1998)
Director: Ringo Lam
Koo, Julian Cheung, Simon Yam, Ray Lui
Out of jail after serving 12 years for murder,
ex-assassin Don (Louis Koo) is asked to kill a presidential forerunner
by his buddies Max (Julian Cheung) and Chan Hung (Simon Yam).
When Don refuses the job, he is made the obvious
suspect after the candidate is assassinated. Now Don is being hunted by
both the police and his two friends, who may or may not have
masterminded the murder themselves.
Directed by Hong Kong Ace Director Ringo Lam (City
On Fire, Maximum Risk, and Full Contact), The Suspect is both a tense
political thriller and an action spectacle. Filled with Lam's trademark
violent shootouts, astonishing car chases, and gritty meditations on the
dark side of human nature, The Suspect is the one to catch.
