I initially thought this drama would be similar to Linewalker, Flying Tigers, or some other TVB police drama/story. But this is just Aiport Police Diaries. There are way too many irrelevant characters with non-important story arcs for those characters. The writers literally just shoved all these characters into 25 episodes and tried to have a story for each of them. But it just doesn't work because they do not add anything to the story.

The beginning of the story is great. A bunch of these police officers is trying to join the Airport Special Forces. Although Hill Cheung is very annoying due to his arrogant behavior, I become curious about why he's like that. Why does he hate Cheung Sir? The main point in this part of the story is, why do they want to become Airport Special Forces? This is where we learn, what motivates them. But after they joined, the story just became a diary for each member of the cast. The characters do not learn anything that is so important to the overall story.

The main lesson I learned from Hill and San Hoi Ching is "let the past die." Hill's hatred towards his father and his brother basically turns him into an arrogant fool. San Hoi Ching blames herself for her brother's death, causing her unable to appreciate her family. But everyone else doesn't really change in the end. I really enjoy watching Matt Yeung's character, Easy. But he has no character progression, other than learning that he cannot trust everyone around him. He is one of the main characters too, yet he barely got much from the drama.

Also, if the drama is about Airport Special Forces, shouldn't there be a little more action? I understand, having terrorist attacks in an airport is not realistic, but this drama itself is already not realistic. There is no climax, no plot twists, etc. The villain is too simple. I don't necessarily believe there is a plot at all in this drama.

I actually believe TVB did a really good job with the first few episodes, and I actually thought this would become TVB black horse drama (i.e. the one that everyone sleeps on but is actually good). However, I am very disappointed to ay that the rest of the series did not live up to my expectations.

Firstly, there were too many characters, not that it's a bad thing if it were written well. All the characters are different and distinctive. In fact, the way those big cast was introduced was very good. However, their story arcs were very badly written, and unnatural. As much as I like to see TVB's "green leaf" actors get more spotlight, if they don't have a good role, there is no point.

The beginning, was very "The Academy"-like, but the later half of the story became more drama, and less "police", which is disappointing as there aren't many airport police procedurals. You'd think that after "Life on the Line" they could actually produce a well balance procedural drama.

The build up to the final villain was very cliche and unrealistic, which had a disappointing end.

Overall it is just an okay drama, with unfulfilled potential. I wish I could just rewrite the series, because there were so many interesting characters that did not get their story told properly, just because the writers decided to put a load of bs love story.
