Tokyo Raiders ★★★ 2000 (PG-13)

Remarkably stylish Hong Kong action flick. Director Jingle Ma brings a music video sensibility to the proceedings. The plot concerns a detective (Tony Leung) and his hunt for a gangster, but that's a negligible excuse for a series of cleverly choreographed action scenes. The physical violence is carefully modulated for a young audience, and many gadgets are employed. 100m/C DVD . HK Tony Leung Chiu-Wai, Ekin Cheng, Toru Nakamura, Hiroshi Abe, Kelly Chen, Kumiko Endo, Minami Shirakawa, Majyu Ozawa, Cecilia Cheung; D: Jingle Ma; W: Susan Chan, Felix Chong; C: Jingle Ma, Chan Chi Ying; M: Peter Kam.
