Champion competitive marksman Ken comes across an armored van robbery. He sees a policeman held hostage and shoots and kills four of the robbers. One of the robbers escapes and the policeman survives. The case is handled by Jerry Chang, whom Ken knows from having recently beaten him in a shooting match. Ken is found not guilty in court. Soon after, Ken is attacked by the escaped robber Pang Tao. Their confrontation reveals a very different background story and brings about a myriad of lies and traps and changes in relationships as Jerry and Ken try to outsmart each other.

What is written above about sums the story up, talking about the plot anymore here would only ruin the film for those who are waiting to see it. But one thing I would like to say is that the movie is advertised as an action film and sure there's some great action scenes but they are mostly at the beginning and end of the film. "Triple Tap" is more a thriller with a bit of mystery to it, the half of the film plays out like any other cop thriller but around halfway into the movie the twists and turns begin which makes for a much more engaging and entertaining film.

Production wise the film is what's expected from any Asian film, everything looks great the fight scenes are tense and well shot. The cast is another bonus here, Louis Koo and Daniel Wu are terrific both separate and together, these two great actors have worked together before so the chemistry the two have together is flawless.

"Triple Tap" isn't the best action film ever but it's an enjoyable one and it's also better than most Hollywood films in the same genre. Just don't think you're getting an all out action film and you will be happy, "Triple Tap" is a thriller with a nice amount of mystery thanks to the many twists in the film and a good bit of action as well at the end.
