Rating:
R
The Prisoner is the 1990 explosive action crime drama from director Yen-ping Chu (Flying Dagger, Slave of the Sword). Cop Andy Lau (Tony Leung Ka Fai) goes undercover into one infamous prison in order to search for the truth behind one criminal who was supposed to be dead but seems not to be that way. Steve Tong (Jackie Chan) is a sort of lowlife who kills a man and is sent to the prison. Violent triad Boss Lee (Andy Lau) seeks revenge for the man who killed his brother. John Liu (Sammo Hung) misses his son and occasionally breaks free from the prison in order to see him, and is always badly beaten as a punishment. Living in that prison is dangerous and so are the wardens, and once violence finally reaches a horrific climax mostly because of Lau, some new aspects about the prison death sentences and those 'killed' are revealed.
