    First Option is an intense action drama depicting the exploits of the Hong Kong Police Department`s crack Special Duties Unit (SDU). This time the elite SDU is called in to support and to clean up after a team of customs officers following a bungled drug raid on a group of highly trained mercenaries. Things begin to go wrong when inter-departmental squabbles and the personal problems of their leader threaten to tear the SDU apart.

    Written and directed by Gordon Chan (Fist Of Legend, Beast Cops, The Medallion) and starring Damian Lau, Gigi Leung, Michael Wong, and Kwong Kim Yip, First Option boasts a series of dazzling action sequences. A massive critical and commercial success, First Option is a stunning example of enlightened creative energy and dramatic vision from one of South East Asia`s most acclaimed and successful directors.
