FILM: That Demon Within (魔警)

New Chinese movies I want to see in 2014:
That Demon Within (魔警)
Why I want 2 C it: Demon looks like a very stylish action pic w/ enough twists to make it fresh. It could have a Fight Club like split-personality thing which would be an interesting injection into HK action film.

Director: Dante LAM  Starring: Daniel WU & Nick CHEUNG

    Dutiful Hong Kong policeman Dave Wong (Daniel Wu) saves the life of the leader of a violent gang of armed robbers. Dave is determined to put an end to their activities. He works with the gang leader Hon Kong (Nick Cheung) to wreak havoc and let the gangsters kill one another.
   But it becomes obvious that Dave is suffering from a severe mental disorder, and he finds that instead of upholding the law, he has now become a fugitive wanted for murder. Dave executes one final move that is certain to wipe out all traces of the gang and restore his reputation as a good police officer.
