    In Johnnie To's Running Out of Time, Andy Lau is a gentleman thief with 3 days to live who undertakes a game with a maverick hostage negotiator/cop who's been knocked down to clerical work (Lau Ching Wan). What follows is a gritty-but-slick entertainment with lots of laughter and an ambiguously tragic ending. Andy Lau won an award for this early acting work (the year was 1999), and he's great as the thief always one step ahead of his competition, but it's Wan that's a real revelation here, as he's an actor I recognize, but not one that's left much of an impression on me in the past. His Inspector Ho is sharp and funny, cool and opportunistic, and has finally found his match. 3 years 10 months ago
