    From Hong Kong cinema's Dante Lam, we get The Stool Pigeon, a police/crime tragedy like only Hong Kong does them. The film splits the focus between an informant and his police handler, and perhaps loses itself in its subplots at times, but I tend to respect the effort to give each character an interesting (if melodramatic) background. But these do impact the story and fuel the theme of a cursed cop who changes the fortunes of those he meets for the worst, putting their lives in danger through his very function. The scenes are well played by the ensemble cast, the director makes every shot interesting, the car and fist action is well done, and the violence looks like it really HURTS. Hard to ask for more. 5 years 2 months ago
