逆戰 (The Viral Factor) (Blu-ray release 2012-3-29) is Hong Kong action movie at its best, although the story does not happen in Hong Kong.  Two brothers, one police and one gang member and separated during childhood, caught up in a plot with bad guys wanting to profit from a virus.  I’m impressed with the technical aspects of the very grand action shots that make this movie very exciting.  The relationship among the brothers and their parents also add some depth to this story.  Reviewers criticized its series of coincidences, and that the heroes can still fight after getting multiple bullets, taking some ideas from Mission Impossible 2 (2000) or the acting, but none of these bother me at all.  For me, I don’t think there are serious logic flaws in this story, that’s good enough for a Hong Kong movie.
