Fire of Conscience(2010)

Dante Lam's Fire of Conscience opens with a bravura sequence. The camera floats through multiple black-and-white frozen frames of incidents that set off the film: a group of armed robbers open fire on a policeman in broad daylight, the police announce a major drug raid, and a prostitute services a customer. The opening is not only bravura in its technical accomplishment, but also in how it efficiently sets in motion a complex story connecting all these three incidents together. Ironically, the rest of the film lacks the very efficiency that opening scene manages to achieve.
