Synopsis

Richard Gere is the jaded federal agent responsible for keeping tabs on child sex offenders when they are released from prison. But while he is training his new replacement (Claire Danes), a child is murdered and it appears that one of his 'flock' has slipped through the net. Hong Kong director Andy Lau (whose Infernal Affairs was remade by Martin Scorsese as The Departed) racks up the tension and creates a palpably grim atmosphere.
