A key member in a multi-nation drug syndicate, Lam is an intelligent criminal with an IQ of 140.

When he discovers that Shiu Yeah (Louis Koo), his right-hand man and confidant, is trying to take over his drug business, he uses everything in his power to stop it, angering the ambitious Shiu Yeah.     



Shiu (Louis Koo) 
Lam’s right-hand man and best friend, Shiu has a wide network of contacts that offers him first-hand intelligence and earned him great deal of success in the syndicate. Despite his achievements, he is unable to surpass Lam and never considered to be more than a right-hand man. He hopes to finally make his mark during the Brazil deal in order to pave his way to the top of the syndicate. However, Lam’s resistance ultimately leads to a power war between the two best friends.  



Inspector Q (Francis Ng) 
The head of the Criminal Intelligence Bureau and Ding’s direct superior officer, Q is the brain behind the undercover hunt. He is a calm, silent figure that carefully considers every step.

Working side-by-side with Ding, he eventually develops feelings for her.  



Ding (Charmaine Sheh) 
Ding is an undercover cop for the Criminal Intelligence Bureau. Growing up in a tough neighborhood, she can sometimes seem more like a hoodlum than a cop. Forced to constantly walk between the law and the criminal world, she often relies on her wit and intelligence to get out of dangerous crises. When she receives a message by an unknown undercover cop known as Blackjack, she is drawn into another dangerous undercover search operation.  




Foon-hei (Benz Hung)

A close shave with bullets in a faraway land 
During the leap from television to film, not only did the Line Walker team amass a star-studded cast, it also expanded the story to a global level with a thrilling climax set in Brazil. Over 12 shooting days, the cast and crew basked in the country’s beautiful sun and soaked in the local culture.
