CN Entertainment are bringing the 1999 Hong Kong crime drama ‘Bullets Over Summer’ (爆裂刑警) to Hong Kong Blu-ray and DVD on September 1, 2021.

Directed by Wilson Yip, the film revolves around a pair of cops who use an elderly woman’s apartment for surveillance, hoping to catch a fugitive gangster. The cast includes Francis Ng, Louis Koo, Helena Law Lan, Michelle Saram, Stephenie Lim, and Wayne Lai.

Synopsis: Officer Mike (Francis Ng) is a temperamental cop assigned to a routine stakeout with partner Yan (Louis Koo). Their quarry is a group of vicious thieves, but Mike and Yan have to deal with the more mundane tasks of police investigation first, like obtaining a proper stakeout location. They select the apartment of a senile old woman (Law Lan, in an award-winning performance), and in between routine surveillance, get to know the old woman and her various neighbors. Everyday life and precious personal connections get made in the line of duty, and the isolation of being a cop seems to fade. But when the job intrudes, sudden lines are drawn, and Mike makes surprising, shocking choices to protect the people he’s come to care about.

Features:
• Cantonese/Mandarin soundtracks
• Chinese/English subtitles
• Region: All

‘Bullets Over Summer’ is available to pre-order now from YesAsia.com.
