COLD WAR is an exciting, fast-paced Hong Kong actioner that revolves around the Hong Kong Police Department. In Asia's safest city, the police have long been untouchable. However, on one fateful day approaching midnight in Hong Kong, police headquarters receives an anonymous call: a fully-loaded police van carrying the force's most advance equipment and five highly trained officers has disappeared off the grid. The hijackers appear to possess direct knowledge of police procedures so despite their tactics, the hijackers are always steps ahead. With no choice in sight, the police must meet a list of demands to ensure the hostages' release, which includes the delivery of a huge ransom. Rival Deputy Commissioners Sean Lau and Waise Lee fight to take charge of the rescue operation, code named Cold War. Lau wants to negotiate with the hijackers while covertly tracking them to their hideout. Lee is ready for an all-out aggressive attack, no matter the cost. Cold War will decide who climbs to the top. Lau and Lee are aware that every decision is crucial, that each minute counts. But as they execute a carefully planned attack, little do they know they've become unwitting pawns in a bigger, more dangerous game...
The movie also stars three-time Hong Kong Film Award winner Tony Leung Ka-Fai, rising Taiwanese star Eddie Peng, new age Hong Kong idol Aarif Rahman, versatile actress Charlie Young and special guest appearance by fellow heavenly king, Andy Lau.
