Under Herman Yau's command Shock Wave is an action crime thriller about a valiant bomb disposal officer trying to stop a group of terrorists from taking over an underground tunnel. The whole performance in this film is good especially on the character of Andy Lau and the cinematography and CGI direction of the film, the tension always high and the action scene is very clear and incredible. Negative point is the novel and the main villain is quite disappointing. A very unstable thriller that is very well articulated, but there was also a sub story about the character of Andy Lau who finds love with a teacher. An excellent action movie from beginning to end. Worth seeing.
