This movie has been sitting in my pile unwatched since the very last Anime Expo I attended (2005?). Anyway, I decided I wanted to watch a HK movie while exercising, and had one of the Twins movies all ready to go (thanks for the loaner, Lisa!) when I discovered that it was not Region 0 or 1, and so would not play on the deck downstairs. So I grabbed Breaking News off the stack as a consolation prize.
And a consolation prize is what it is. It's an acceptable action movie, with a bit of cat-and-mouse, but nothing really special, and not exhilarating in the way a silly Twins movie can be. Basic HK police action movie.
