Editorial Reviews

The Stool Pigeon examines the fine line between cops and their undercover informants. Police Detective Don Lee (Nick Leung) makes a bad call, causing a close informant to be injured. A year later, he must locate a new man to go undercover inside a jewel-theft ring. Ghost, Jr. (Nicholas Tse) doesn t want to do it, but Lee can offer deals and apply pressure that makes it hard to say no. Lee makes decisions based on the progress of his case, but not always at the benefit of his informant. Ghost must play a role, but can t decline the chance to do what s right. Best actor Nicholas Tse and Nick Cheung and Director Dante Lam renew the successful collaboration that brought audiences the multiple award-winner The Beast Stalker.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Cop and an Informant December 30, 2011
A 2010 Hong Kong crime drama "Stool Pigeon" follows the story of a police detective Don Lee (Nick Cheung) and his newly recruited informant, an ex-convict Ghost (Nicholas Tse). Don wants to bring down the criminal gang led by notorious Barbarian (Lu Yi) who has returned from Taiwan, and to do so the detective uses Ghost, who infiltrates the criminal gang as a getaway driver.

Things get complicated when Ghost gets involved with Ah Di (Kwai Lun-mei), Barbarian's lover. And the detective, who strictly orders younger officers not to be emotionally attached to the informants, has some past he has to deal with.

If you are looking for big shoot-outs and car chases, perhaps you will be disappointed with "Stool Pigeon," which is, like critically acclaimed "Infernal Affairs," about the characters torn between the conflicting values. Yes, there are action scenes and they are competently done, but they rather serve to show how these characters, trying to run away from the past, get driven into corners. Sorry for my vague descriptions, but in short, this is a Hong Kong noir, where there is no easy way out.

Despite the several lulls, director Dante Lam keeps the tension throughout, with the excellent acting from Nick Cheung and Nicholas Tse. My complaint is that the film has too many subplots and flashbacks. Kwai Lun-mei's character needs more depth. The sentimental dancing class episodes are pretty incredible, even by the standards of crime suspense. With a simpler plotline "Stool Pigeon" could have been more thrilling and involving.

5.0 out of 5 stars gr8 gritty drama August 20, 2012

Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
i just loved this movie from start to end. similar movies like' the departed' where the character plays a deep undercover assignment always interrested me. this story is about a guy who just been release from prison to help the police infiltrate a group of thieves. theres even a bit of fast and furious type scenes in this. loved the chracters and the edge of your seat action and chase scenes. and for the gamers reading this i also recommend playing 'sleeping dogs' game for a similar experience.

4.0 out of 5 stars Lean and Mean cop drama March 1, 2012
The Stool Pigeon is a well directed taut cop drama , with heavy emphasis on the characters that drive this thriller ,the flashbacks pieces together this story and make for some compelling action sequences thru out this film,there no redeeming characters in this film ,which was quite alright with me, this story was about an informant and the hell he goes thru ,because of his past.That's about all of the movie I will talk about!A suggestion is to seek out all of DANTE LAM'S action/crime drama's he's is the best out there right now in my opinion,this Director's movies get better with each one,also looking forward to viewing the Viral Factor in the near future his latest crime epic, Stool Pigeon is a solid entertaining crime film......peace

4.0 out of 5 stars The Informants POV February 1, 2012
Quite good acting and cinematography. Script and directing were well done but not on a par with the acting and filming. Some of the editing made following the storyline a bit more confusing than it needed to be and to that add a storyline that's a little too shallow at times particularly the different character subplots.

Informants and their interaction with police is the primary storyline whereas that story is customarily a secondary thought in crime genre movies. Heavily tragedy oriented, so be prepared.
