"Overheard" Hong Kong Version DVD

With a star-studded cast and crew, the Hong Kong film "Overheard" has became one of the biggest Chinese blockbusters of 2009. "Overheard" shares the same cast and crew of the critical and popular film "Infernal Affairs." But in this one, there are no fights or bullets. The plot is concentrated on the challenge of gathering intelligence. The story unfolds through the performances of the A-list actors and actresses. Written and directed by Alan Mak and Felix Chong (the writers behind the "Infernal Affairs" trilogy), it's the first time for Lau Ching Wan, Louis Koo and Daniel Wu to appeared in the same film and all three play the bad guys. Daniel Wu marries a rich woman but is continuously looked down on by his father-in-law. Louis Koo gives an impressive performance in the role of a father who has cancer and four children to raise. And Lau Ching Wan plays the head of an information office who is consistently let down by life. Famous mainland actress Zhang Jingchu plays the wife of Lau in role that rarely shows up in a film led by men. The film was released theatrically in Hong Kong on 30 July 2009 and now it expected to release on DVD version on this September 30, 2009.

Plot: A major stock exchange in the world, Hong Kong attracts not only money but any who try to manipulate the market. At the Hong Kong Police Force Commercial Crime Bureau, an operation is underway to infiltrate a trading company, Feng Hua International where a man, nicknamed “Boss” is the chief suspect.
The team, led by Inspector Leung (Lau Ching Wan) together with Yeung (Louis Koo) and Lam (Daniel Wu) install interception devices to monitor the company’s communications. When a crucial information on a surging share was intercepted, a moment of greed led the team in a cross fire between the Bureau and the boss.

With producer Derek Yee acting as advisor, "Overheard" is easily the most morally ambiguous Hong Kong movie to get the thumbs up from the Mainland censors in recent memory. (The big lesson here? Don’t play hero if you’re busy breaking the law in the meantime.) As its three leads all contribute nuanced yet non-flashy performances, the film manages to morph its first half’s spontaneous humour and its final act’s abruptly efficient killings into a consistently engrossing whole. Unlike its famed predecessor, Overheard isn’t going to stand a chance in the pointing-a-gun-at-each-other-without-shooting contest; and it’s all the better for it.
