Tedious tale of rape and murder.
21 April 2006 | by (Hampshire, England) – See all my reviews

Purportedly based on a real life case, this tale of a violent rapist attacking women in the Tuen Mun district of Hong Kong is a mundane category III sleazefest with few redeeming qualities.

The unsavoury story follows the police's unsuccessful attempts at apprehending the villain before they eventually get lucky when he falls for one of his victims and (incredibly) asks her out to the movies. She goes to the cops. They arrest him. End of story.

Obviously influenced by the success of true-life Cat III movies such as Dr. Lamb and The Untold Story, the makers of this film intended to shock (or possibly titillate) their audience with the brutal depiction of rape and murder from the word go. Unfortunately, the end result is a rather tedious affair with too much time spent following the procedures of the police and not enough spent examining the warped persona of the villain.
