RELEASED IN2014CASTTHE STORYOne cop sent out 5 cops as undercover at various section of society and one day he supposedly jumped to his death. Before he died he confided in his good friend, a fellow cop about the 5 undercover cops but before he could reveal their identities, he died. So now this friend of his has to find these 5 undercover cops to work with them to bring down the biggest triad in HK whilst protecting their identities and evading investigations and allegations that he is a corrupt cop by ICAC as well as threading the line with another sworn enemy, the O-kei.GREAT TIDBITMichael's character was supposed to have been played by Tony Leung (Ka Fai) but he injured himself. Pity.Sammy Leung was supposed to play the character of Kobe, now occupied by Sammy Shum who was supposed to play the annoying O-Kei cop now occupied by Patrick Tang! But is Sammy Leung suitable for the role of Kobe if Kobe is as he is as played by Sammy Shum? I doubt it. I think the casting now is just right. Sammy Leung would have been a better fit as Raymond's character or Oscar's but Jazz Lam was born for Oscar's character. Talk about a huge miscast!I suppose this series marks the return of Charmaine Sheh to TVB, but not permanently of course.
WHAT SOME TERMS MEAN
UC - Undercover Cop planted by the cops in the police force
Mole - spy by the triads (in this case) planted into the police force
Informer - Not a UC nor a mole but under the payroll of the police to provide information for a fee
OTT - over the top acting (think Gigi Lai and Cecilia Yip in their worst moment)
I saw your 3 mothers slaughtered and I swear to you on my life and my heart and my soul and every fibre in my being, I will get the son of a bitch that caused this and I will kill him
You Deng because you should have sent them away much much earlier.
I don't know who you are. I don't know what you want. If you are looking for ransom, I can tell you I don't have money. But what I do have are a very particular set of skills; skills I have acquired over a very long career. Skills that make me a nightmare for people like you. If you let my daughter go now, that'll be the end of it. I will not look for you, I will not pursue you. But if you don't, I will look for you, I will find you, and I will kill you.
If you touch my moms, I will look for you, I will find you, and I will kill you.
I don't think Benz is the 5th UC. He can't be unless he became one decades ago and that would be before (is it) Hong Sir's time which is plain ridiculous. Moreover whilst I like the whole UC gone rogue storyline, to make Benz into one is overpopulating this series with too many UCs in one organisation that in the end one wonders is there NOT a UC in the whole darn place. But then this series can try to outsmart itself but that would mean the death of the series for me. It is already threading the line between good and stupid. I get why it is popular since it is action packed. But I feel ROE has a more intimate storyline and better in capturing the difficulties and the complexities of a UC or mole even if many may not like the actress or the ending. Sharon is a character I find absolutely pointless. At least Patrick has something to do. Elena is doing fine but to make her a prosecutor is like trying to tie up the loose end into this perfect little knot. I'd rather she is this simple housewife that Michael falls for. That itself makes things complicated, it does not need the fact that she is a prosecutor to be more complicated. This series is outsmarting and outpacing its own premise. The more I see it, the more I feel something is way off with it. The flaws to me aren't minor; it eats into the story and it is just one revelation after the other. The structure is same as ROE except I feel at least ROE takes its time to map out the characters because it has less people and yet still as shocking and violent. LW is twice the cast but so much lesser in impact. After the 5th UC is exposed, and then what? What more can it say?
