This is an enjoyable movie to watch after a long day at work. Feel sorry to the cop though.. even more so if you watch the sequel as well

Good movie!!!
A movie that was about a decade old. Plot is rather flimsy, but I like the flow of the movie, and the ending is rather predictable. But I enjoyed watching the movie, the girl is quite pretty, but too bad the story doesn't expand too much on the female character.

This is a very exciting cat-and-mouse / cop-and-robber movie in the 90's and has been one of my most favorite movie!!

Brilliant acting from both Andy Lau (who won best actor that year) and Lau Ching Wan...

Run Out And Watch!
There\'s something to said for this tightly-woven Hong Kong action thriller because RUNNING OUT OF TIME tries very hard to combine the traditional buddy picture with one pinch of \"The Sting\" and a hint of \"Tootsie\" thrown in for unexpected laughs.
What makes TIME tick is the slickness of the characters: Wah only has a few weeks to live, suffering from a form of incurable cancer, and he finds himself paired with police negotiator Sang in his final act toward redemption. Redemption, however, already has its price tag on it, as Wah\'s condition quickly deteriorates, and he must rely on an unlikely friendship with Sang to help make end-meet-end before meeting his Maker.

These two actors make the picture work, despite some clunky dialogue (especially clunky in the English-dubbed version, so be warned). Their chemistry onscreen elevates TIME to higher levels of interest for the viewer as you don\'t know who to root for here: the cop being hustled by the shylock, or the shylock living out his last few days trying to mend life\'s wrongs.

Regardless of whom you root for, RUNNING OUT OF TIME is a great achievement -- a welcome twist to the cop/crook formula -- that gives you some wonderfully unexpected laughs as the story unfolds.
