Weekend filled with movies

Overheard (窃听风云)
Starring Lau Ching Wan, Louis Koo and Daniel Wu.

Synopsis:
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 were intercepted, a moment of greed led the team in a cross fire between the Bureau and the boss.

anyway, i was a little emo at the end of the movie. it was a sad ending T___T the moral of the movie is clearly delivered. people who did bad things, will eventually suffer from the consequences. and sometimes, it not only happen on the person himself, but as well as the closest family and friends.
rating: 4/5
