Acclaimed director Johnnie To (The Heroic Trio, The Mission) is on top form with slam bang action-thriller Running Out of Time and its equally electrifying sequel. Expert hostage negotiator Ho Sheung-sang (Lau Ching-wan, Black Mask, Mad Detective) is drawn into a psychological game of cat-and-mouse when a criminal mastermind with weeks to live (Andy Lau, Infernal Affairs, House of Flying Daggers) decides to take on the entire Hong Kong Police Force. There's more to his plan than meets the eye, but can Inspector Ho figure it out and catch him in time? He's got 72 hours to try. A huge box office hit, Running Out of Time swept the 19th Hong Kong Film Awards and spawned a popular sequel in Running Out of Time 2, in which Lau Ching-wan returns as Inspector Ho - this time in pursuit of a sophisticated art thief with a taste for drama and theatrical flair.

Press Quotes

Here is an action packed, intelligent thriller that will please and entertain even the most jaded fans of HK cinema

     —Asian Cult Cinema

A gripping thriller starring two Hong Kong heavyweights


Moves at a brisk pace, blending high-octane action and humor very well. The chase scenes, in particular, are never unnecessarily prolonged, leaving plenty of room for strong character development.


Great editing, timing and wonderful performances

     —Asian Movie Pulse

Both of Jonnie To’s Running Out of Time films are delightful romps with engaging characters and just enough eye candy for 90 minutes of pure escapism.

     —Phil Bailey, Ink 19

The beats in the film shift between drama, action, and comedy with incredible ease

     —Douglas Davidson, Elements Of Madness

Running Out of Time (1999) and its sequel from 2001 serve as a nice introduction to [Johnnie To's] talents and the evolution of Hong Kong action films overall.

     —Movie Line Online

Arrow Video has put together a great package for Running Out of Time 1 & 2. Highest Possible Recommendations!!!

     —A.W. Kautzer, The Movie Isle

[The] supplements on this release are outstanding and should help seal the deal for some. Recommended.

     —Jeffrey Kauffman, Blu-ray.com

Director Johnnie To keeps the action pumping from the top of the skyscrapers to the roads of Hong Kong.

     —Joe Corey, Inside Pulse

Whether you are an established fan or newcomer, this release is worth seeking out if you want some action-packed fun.

     —Dillon Gonzales, Geek Vibes Nation

definitely worth your attention
