S.D.U. '97


Director: Cho Wing

Stars: Yu Rong Guang, Hilary Tsui, Law Kar-Ying

After a botched mission, a SDU (Hong Kong version of SWAT) squad goes into private practice and takes on the case of rescuing a tycoon's daughter. This is average cop drama/action stuff all the way, with a few good action sequences but way too many lame, long-winded exposition scenes. These "police procedural" movies seem to be popular in Hong Kong (and with some fans over here), but I don't really see why. They seem to be the same thing over and over again, and this film is just more of the same. I would guess that S.D.U. '97 is worth a look if you're into this type of movie, but it's something I'd never likely watch again.
