Pretty gruesome HK Cat.III psychological thriller.
3 March 2015 | by (Chyby, Poland) – See all my reviews

After coming back from US to Hong Kong Ted Wu is questioned by police about 25 murders he apparently committed in the United States.Ted begins his new life in Hong Kong.He visits his ex-policeman father and starts washing cars to earn money.Reporter Anthony Wong tries to expose Ted because he knows about his criminal past."A Lamb in Despair" is a pretty gloomy III Cat. psychological thriller with few nasty scenes of violence including particularly brutal killing of father,mother and their child.Still the film is not as sadistic and gory as for example "Red to Kill" or "The Untold Story".The acting is strong and the climax on the roof is quite memorable.7 schizophrenics out of 10.
