Running Out of Time 2 (Chinese: 暗戰2, literal title:Hidden War 2) is a 2001 Hong Kong crime caper film co-directed by Johnnie To and Law Wing-Cheong. It is a sequel to To's 1999 film Running Out of Time, with Lau Ching-Wan returning as Inspector Ho Sheung-Sang, who this time has to go after an elusive thief played by Ekin Cheng.


The film brings back Inspector Ho Sheung-Sang (Lau Ching-Wan), this time to contend with another clever thief (Ekin Cheng, whose character is nameless).
