Fire of Conscience

General info
Original title: For Lung (火龙)
Country: Hong Kong
Year: 2010
IMDB Rating: 6.3 334 votes
Plot: Detective Manfred is obsessed with revenge on murderer of his wife. He lives out of his car, drinks heavily and regularly takes out his pent-up aggression on suspects. When pickpockets stole key evidence, Inspector Kee from the Narcotics Bureau asked Manfred for help. Although rough and hot-tempered Manfred is the direct opposite of suave and manipulative Inspector Kee, they made a good team.

Later, the killings of a policeman and a prostitute, that initially seem to be unrelated, once again bring them together. But are they on the same side this time?

Featured reviews for

Fire of Conscience
(overall rating: 3.7 out of 5 based on 3 reviews)
LoveHKfilm, by Kevin Ma source:
«Despite its flaws, Fire of Conscience is an easy film to recommend for a night at the movies, as its technical achievements play very well in a large cinema with a loud audio system. However, the film doesn't have a strong enough story to carry it beyond the cinema, and could potentially be a far duller experience on the small screen. », by Gabriel Chong - 4/5 source:
«Profusely exciting and intensely gripping, Dante Lam’s latest is a winning combination of hard-hitting action and character-driven drama»
Twitch, by James Marsh source:
«FIRE OF CONSCIENCE is a taut, gripping police thriller, brimming with gunplay, explosions and perilous stunt work that leaves its audience breathless and exhilarated. ... At the end of the day FIRE OF CONSCIENCE is all about the action, which thankfully Dante Lam delivers in spades - stylishly, inventively and at a breakneck pace.», by JAMES MUDGE source:
«Still, the blood and bullets never quite drown out the character work, and as a result “Fire of Conscience” is a film which not only thrills, but grips. While it may be a touch downbeat and angst-ridden for viewers looking for straightforward, guilt free fun, it delivers an engaging, measured mixture of action and tormented male psyches. Lam directs with style and verve, and the film certainly confirms him as one of the most interesting currently working in the thriller genre.»
Screen, by Mark Adams source:
«Sure the story is more than a little preposterous, but the film looks terrific, sounds great and is made with real verve and skill. It is a film buyers should take a good look at – if only for the opening montage and the restaurant shoot-out.»
Hollywood Reporter, by Elizabeth Kerr source:
«"Fire of Conscience" is technically strong (and did we mention loud?) and its saturated, garishly hued images add a certain gritty finish that gives the unsavory story a suitably skeevy tone.»
