The film that launched Danny Lee Sau-yin's career and influenced a decade of cop thrillers, this film -- starring and directed by Lee -- concerns a veteran cop named "B" who is respected both by his colleagues and by gangsters alike. While showing the ropes to his new partner, Yip Che-kit (Eddie Chan), B gets a hot lead against career bank robber Blacky (Parkman Wong Pak-man) who is suspected of murder. When B confronts Blacky, a gunfight ensues and B accidentally kills a young boy. B's only chance to clear his name is to apprehend Blacky and have him testify that B was not aiming at the child. Danny Lee eventually won a Best Actor prize in the Hong Kong Film Awards for his performance.
