User Reviews

Fresh, intelligent and masterful film
15 December 2002 | by (Singapore) – See all my reviews

Infused with Taoist cultural beliefs, placed in the middle of Taiwan's politically-sensitive social environment, and with a keen eye for the international audience, Chen Kuo-fu has created an intelligent film with the best actors from Taiwan including Tony Leung, Rene Liu, Yang Kuei Mei and Dai Liren, with American actor David Morse as the Hollywood selling point. Well-shot, beautifully-crafted and highly intelligent, this masterpiece elevates itself above the ranks of normal staid Asian ghost films. In particular, Tony Leung executes himself well as a troubled cop. The cultural clashes between himself and David Morse are witty and funnily-scripted. The supporting cast is great too. A must-watch.
