Cold War

After receiving several cryptic phone calls from the hijackers one officer starts realizing they're aware of every crucial decision they make. But as they execute a carefully planned attack, little do they know they've become unwitting pawns in a bigger, more dangerous game.

Last November

According to data from the observatory

Hong Kong experienced

the latest typhoon arrival event in a year.

Typhoon Coral brought over 200mm of rainfall to Hong Kong.

Wake up, Man. Thieves!

Wake up, Man. Thieves!

Shut up.

Answer your phone.

Van 71 calling.

Van 71, go ahead.

Container Port Road South in Kwai Chung,

near street light CC0381.

There's TADO (Traffic Accident Damage Only).

Hey, mister. Stand still!

Someone's hurt, looks conscious.

Wait for more detail.

Mister, you're hurt.

Do you need an ambulance?

You shut up! I can't understand Chinese. Piss off! Get the f*ck out of here man!

You are suspected of dangerous and drunk driving.

Don' touch me. Don't touch me.

Shut up. Don't fucking touch me! All right.

Hey, watch your tongue. Quit the foul language.

Show me your ID card.

What ID card? No!

Do I need to carry an ID card?

If you don't show us, we'll take you to the police station right now.

Do you know who my uncle is?

Sit down! Sit down!

Shut up. Hey shup up.

Calm down. Sit still there.

Hello? Yeah! Uncle! Yeah, this is Brian.

These dumbass police won't let me go right now.

All right! You! Take the phone!

Hello, this is Emergency Unit Commander M.Y. Shum.

He's suspected of drunk driving.

What is his relationship to you?

Uncle, yeah! Can I go now?

Hello? A man crashed his car

and was suspected of drunk driving.

He said his uncle is a judge.

What? They're mad dogs.

I must go. I... have to go. Hello?

Arrest him!


We're cops, not mad dogs.

If you assault cops,

I could beat you to death!

Vincent, these are the documents you want.

Thank you.


Commissioner Tsang's flight

just arrived in Copenhagen.

His mobile is still off.

Headquarters Command Control Centre said,

apart from the Police Public Relations Branch

and Head quarters Command Control Centre,

At least three G4 tactical teams

took action 15 minutes ago.

Is it that serious?

There's more.

Twenty minutes ago, Deputy Police Commissioner Lee as Acting Commissioner

announced a Tier One Response.

Something's up.



The big show tonight is obviously against you.

Watch out.

Save the formality. Time is short.

Albert, let's start.

We called you all back so late

because of two things,

First, an hour and a half ago,

an explosive went off outside the Broadway Mongkok cinema.

So far no casualties have been reported.

Second, last night at 23.00,

an Emergency Unit van in New Territories South

hadn't reported to the Command Centre for 30 minutes.

At 23:

our report room received an anonymous phone call.


An Emergency Unit van

with five cops,

and all the equipment in the van.

What's it all worth?


The Emergency unit control centre confirmed that

No. 71

is still out of contact.

Regional Command records show

No. 71 was mid-shift

At 22:
44, it had just dealt with a drunkard causing trouble.

They continued on with work and then went missing.

Not only the EU van,

but also the phones of the five officers went dead.

We all know GPS isn't exact.

Besides radio records,

we activated

the Major Incident Investigation and Disaster Support System

are locked down a 20 km radius.

New Territories South sent out two EU vans

and patrol cars to follow up.

Up to now...

Lau. Up to this point, what do you think?

Michael's deployment is right.

But I'd call in

everyone related to cases

handled earlier by No. 71

to assist in our investigation.

We've already done what you've just said.
