Cold War is a 2012 Hong Kong police thriller film directed by Sunny Luk and Longman Leung, starring Aaron Kwok and Tony Leung Ka-fai, and guest starring Andy Lau. The film was selected as the opening film at the 17th Busan International Film Festival and released in Hong Kong, Macau and Mainland China on 8 November 2012.
The film's title, Cold War (寒戰), is derived from the code name used in the police operation where the plot of the film evolves.
The film won nine awards including Best Actor, Best Film, Best Director and Best Screenplay at the 32nd Hong Kong Film Award.
In Asia’s safest city, the police have long been untouchable. Approaching midnight in Hong Kong, police headquarters receives an anonymous call: a fully loaded police van carrying the force’s most advanced equipment and five highly trained officers has disappeared off the grid. The hijackers possess direct knowledge of police procedures and are already several steps ahead. The police must meet a list of demands to ensure the hostages’ release, including the delivery of a large ransom. Any delay will cost lives. The clock has begun to tick.
Rival Deputy Commissioners Sean Lau (aged 44) and Waise Lee (51) 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. For them, there’s much more at stake than the safety of the hostages or the reputation of the police. With the Commissioner stepping down in 2 1/2 years, the seat will soon be vacant. COLD WAR will decide who climbs to the top. Lau is Deputy Commissioner (Management), whilst Lee is Deputy Commissioner (Operations); the former has the support of the Security Secretary and has proven himself by putting the Force's accounts in order. Lee, on the other hand rose through the ranks from Constable and has the support of frontline officers including the CID.
Lau and Lee are aware that every decision is crucial, that each minute counts. But as they execute a carefully planned attack, they know they’ve become unwitting pawns in a bigger, more dangerous game.
