When you talk about Hong Kong cinema there is always several names you think of and one of them is Johnnie To. There is still many great Hong Kong films we wish would be released in the UK, other deserving an upgrade. One of this films is PTU and in June Eureka Entertainment is set to release the immersive crime thriller on Blu-ray for the first time in the UK as part of The Masters of Cinema Series in June.
Set against a Hong Kong that never sleeps, a stolen police gun triggers a suspenseful chain of events. Tracking down his missing gun before dawn, Sergeant Lo first has his car vandalised and is then beaten up. Suddenly he finds himself edged between two gangs on the brink of a bloodbath, whilst at the same time staving off investigations by both Vice Squad and Homicide Units embroiled in their own turf war. His only lifeline is a maverick Police Tactical Unit squad who have one night to help him find his gun.
