Theft Under The Sun (1997)


Director: Cha Chuen Yee

Starring: Michael Wong Man Tak, Julian Chi Lam, Gigi Lai Chi

A decent actioner with good suspense marred by some cheesy special effects. Entertaining nevertheless.

An undercover cop walks on a thin line between right and wrong, good & bad. His mission is to crack open a triad den, but he finds that the gangsters are his friends and the cops, his enemies.

Ka-Ho (Cheung Chi Lam) is a young undercover cop deep inside a gang run by Dan (Michael Wong), a charismatic American. When a bust by the police goes wrong and Dan escapes, Ka-Ho takes the heat. While he's on leave, he realizes that the police are watching him as if he were a criminal, so when he runs across Dan, Ka-Ho decides to join him in his newest venture. But has Ka-Ho actually turned to life of crime, or is he engaging in some unauthorized undercover work in an attempt to clear his reputation? That is the question Ka-Ho's superiors must answer as Dan prepares to smuggle a truckload of missiles into the city.

Deftly plotted and supported by a wonderful performance from Cheung Chi Lam, Theft Under the Sun is one of the more satisfying HK action films produced in recent years. The script makes more sense than most HK action films, even if there are some hard-to-swallow plot contrivances. Some of the special effects are pretty cheap, but the film does such a good job of building suspense about where Ka-Ho's loyalties lie much of the technical problems can be overlooked.
