(Unless you can comprehend Chinese or take time to google such region 3 DVD titles in English, you would not know what it is about. Thank goodness other foreign titles almost always include descriptions in English and consumers are not required to be fluent in French, German, Spanish, Hindi, Arabic, Japanese, Russian... )

An edgy and over the top violent police melodrama. First half of the film introduced a trio of “sworn brothers” in a police task force targeting the heroine trade in seedy districts in Hong Kong. One was about to become a new dad and, during a narcotic raid operation in Thailand, he made a personal “choice” which in turn forced his partner to make another choice which destroyed their forever-brotherhood. The second half of the film showed the now estranged cops living separate lives, haunted by the “choices” in Thailand and their quest for redemption in taking down the heroine trade. A decent “police story” genre film that brought “The Departed 2006” to Hollywood.

Disappointing. Expected more. The script could have gone through another rewrite.

Lyrics to the song on camaraderie:
掃毒 電影主題曲 誓要入刀 (see "Videos":)
♪♪♪
Sworn to tread the mountain of swords
誓要去 入刀山
With courage, overcome a thousand barriers
浩氣壯 過千關
Lofty spirits and unswerving pride
豪情無限 男兒傲氣
Travel back and forth between hells alone
地獄也獨來獨往返
Still crave to visit the tiger cave for once
存心一闖虎豹穴
Leave this morning, not knowing when to return
今朝去幾時還
Too bad intoxication doesn't last forever
奈何難盡歡千日醉
Regret we haven't met any earlier
此刻相對恨晚
Wish to have a drink with you
願與你 盡一杯
Remember how we parted and met
聚與散 記心間
Long live the unswerving pride and fraternity
毋忘情義 長存浩氣
it's never too late to know you well
日後再相知未晚
♪♪♪ Repeat ♪♪♪
♪♪♪
Still crave to visit the tiger cave for once
存心一闖虎豹穴
Leave this morning, not knowing when to return
今朝去幾時還
Too bad intoxication doesn't last forever
奈何難盡歡千日醉
...
