Night Fall is a 2012 Hong Kong crime thriller film directed by Sir Michael Ning, and starring Nick Cheung, Simon Yam, Janice Man, and Kay Tse. The movie tells the story of a police detective, named Johnny Tam (Nick Cheung), who is investigating the murder of a man who died in a car accident. Johnny's investigation leads him to believe that the accident was not an accident at all but was intentionally caused by someone to hide a much darker motive.

The movie opens with a thrilling car chase scene, setting the tone for a fast-paced investigation-driven storyline. We are introduced to Johnny Tam, who is a skilled detective assigned to investigate the deaths of two men whose burnt bodies are discovered in a luxury car at the scene of a car crash. The investigation takes Johnny to various crime scenes, where he discovers clues that prove that the accident was not just an accident at all but a murder.

As Johnny's investigation deepens, he discovers that the car crash was staged to cover up the real crime. The case leads him to a dangerous gang of robbers, who have recently committed a daring heist. Johnny is convinced that the two men who died in the car crash knew the robbers and had something to do with the heist. He then sets out to bring the perpetrators to justice.

Simon Yam plays the role of Lee Kin-Kwok, Johnny's superior, who believes that Johnny's theories are too far-fetched and advises him to drop the case. But Johnny, convinced of his theory, refuses to give up, and instead gathers more evidence to get closer to the truth. Janice Man plays the role of a female journalist, who also gets involved in the case while trying to uncover the truth behind the heist.

Kay Tse plays the role of a gangster's girlfriend who acts as Johnny's informant. She helps Johnny to uncover crucial evidence that leads to the arrest of the robbers. As the investigation continues, tensions rise, and the danger intensifies as the robbers realize they are being watched and hunted.

What sets Night Fall apart is the character development. We see through Johnny's eyes the impact of his work on his personal life. His wife leaves him as the job takes a toll on their relationship, and he is consumed by his single-minded desire to solve the case. The movie also delves into the relationship between criminals and law enforcers, and how the lines between good and evil become blurred.

The cinematography of the movie is stunning, with Hong Kong's neon streets providing the perfect backdrop to the action-packed chase scenes. The movie's score adds to the intensity of the narrative, keeping the viewers engaged from start to finish.

In conclusion, Night Fall is a gripping crime thriller that keeps you on the edge of your seat until the very end. The intense plot, the brilliant performances by the cast, and the eye-catching cinematography make the movie a must-watch for fans of the genre.
