The sequel to the Hong Kong box smash film Cold War 2 continues the 2012 film’s saga of intra-police rivalry. Sean Lau (Aaron Kwok) is now the police commissioner, while rival M.B. Lee (Tony Leung) is about to retire from the force. After a bungled operation in a subway station, however, shadowy politicos connive to replace Lau with Lee.
Joining this all star Hong Kong cast is legendary actor Chow Yun Fat who plays the legislator Oswald Kan.
Like such precursors as Hong Kong cinema classics Infernal Affairs and Election, Cold War 2 is a playful yet serious look about the workings of power in Chinese society.
