If you follow Taiwan politics at all, then you should know that they're a mess. And if you don't follow them, then you now have a sensationalized primer to give you a heads-up. Lawrence Lau directs Ballistic, a crime thriller that uses the turbulent world of Taiwanese politics to tell a riveting story of cops, corruption, and how righteousness still has value in this grey-shaded world. Or maybe that's just what it wants to be. Actually, Ballistic is more plodding than powerful, and its themes don't really run that deep, but the film manages both interest and entertainment value because of its crime movie trappings and sensationalistic storyline. It's questionable if the film achieves anything, but it's worth seeing nonetheless.
