Synopsis
In this "cops and robbers" film, a raid on a jewelry store staged by a band of amateur hold-up artists goes horribly wrong, leading to a shoot-out. The elite Organized Crime Bureau team, headed by Captain Ching King Gen, is poised to go into action at a moment's notice. Working as a unit, they bring law and order to Hong Kong streets, where they must rely on their courage and skills to survive. Expect the Unexpected is a perfect genre film showing everyday life and reflecting the current situation in Hong Kong after the hand-over to China. "Unexpectedness" is the underlying theme, which also applies to misdirected affections and miscalculations between the cops and the robbers. The favorite line of the film is "You never pay attention to what I say." Expect the Unexpected was screened as part of the International Forum of New Cinema section of the 49th Berlin Film Festival, 1999. ~ Gönül Dönmez-Colin, All Movie Guide
