The director of the phenomenal Infernal Affairs brings us The Guillotines, a kind of true story which mixes action, unbearable conflict, and social commentary. Actually scratch that, it doesn’t so much mix them as it does just clump it all together in a frustratingly uneven film that continuously changes pace and purpose.

With times a changing the group are sent on a mission, only to find themselves the prey for greater hunters once they are betrayed by those they once trusted. It’s the usual story of betrayal, and it’s something that could have actually been quite powerful, were it not for the fact that characters are indistinguishable from one another. »
