Heat Team is a 2004 Hong Kong action film directed by Dante Lam and starring Aaron Kwok, Eason Chan and Yumiko Cheng.

Plot[edit]

Lee Yiu-ting (Aaron Kwok) and Wong Kai-chung (Eason Chan) are police officers of the Regional Crime Unit of Hong Kong Island and Kowloon respectively. Both of them are ace marksmen, as well as being very agile. They are elite members of the police force who have never met.

Regional Crime Unit Superintendent Cheung Tit-chu (Danny Lee) had received information that international thief Ken Ma (Wong Ban-yuen) has secretly entered Hong Kong for a heist. Superintendent Cheung decides to organize a special operation group with elite members of the police force to take down international criminals, and Chung and Ting were recruited to the group.

Ken plans to lead his gang in a heist to steal a priceless diamond necklace. Ken and his girlfriend To Yu-fung (Victoria Wu), a jewelry appraiser, plan to retire after the heist and leave to distant parts. Ting, Chung, alongside their new female superior Fung Po-po (Yumiko Cheng) work together to investigate the whereabouts of the stolen necklace. However, the three of them do not trust each other and cause many disputes while competing for the best performance. While on the thread-less occasion, Yu-fung appears and makes a deal with the police that she will hand out the necklace if they would find and rescue Ken. At this time, Yu-fung is also being hunted by gangsters. To ensure her safety, Ting and Chung were assigned to protect Yu-fung. Since then, the relationship between them have turned from hostile to delicate and sensitive. The movie ends with Ting leaving the hospital ward after visiting Chung to recuperate from his gun shot injury.

Reception[edit]

Critical[edit]

Beyond Hollywood gave the film a mixed review and wrote, "When all is said and done, I suppose “Heat Team” is a breezy enough way to lose 95 minutes of free time. It’s not the worst of the bunch, but you can’t help but think that it could have been much better if the comedy was jettisoned completely and the whole thing was played with a straight face."[1] Love HK Film also gave the film a mixed review and wrote "Heat Team is occasionally amusing and even fun, but don't expect it to make any sense."[2]

Box office[edit]

The film grossed HK$1,603,003 at the box office during its theatrical run from 24 June to 21 July 2004 in Hong Kong.
