Masterpiece of social criticism on the rampant corruption in China
30 March 2004 | by See all my reviews

The literal translation of the title of this movie is actually: Selection between life and death.

This movie paints an accurate picture of the rampant corruption in China, namely, the "connection net". The "connection net" that links up everyone like the way the gangsters controls their gang members, and members embezzle the money together, and covers up for everyone.

The movie is based loosely on a true story and many identical events also happened in real life, which is far to common in China. To alert potential investors or merchants of the tactics corrupted officials used, this movie was aired in Taiwan and Hong Kong, the top two foreign investors in China.
