Quirky film is good, but not great
16 January 2002 | by (Mpls., MN) – See all my reviews

The ones who get their "comeuppance" in this film are rude and obnoxious triad gangsters. Where it's coming from is the mystery driving the detective on the case. Is it the start of a gang war? A serial killer? Jordan Chan is cast against his usual role as a budding writer developing a fictional column based on these events. Unconsciously, this trio of characters begin to influence each other. Director has some fun with the concept by using jumps in time, hallucinations and some plot twists to keep things hopping. Suspense and humor comes from coincidences that don't strain credulity. Filmed in mundane locations with very little background music. Just needs a little something more to make this a cut above. Maybe some more style needed or maybe the idea would have been more compelling in a shorter format. Cautions: some violence, bathroomscenes, brief sexuality. Ending is unusual in a genre that normally glorifies triads. 7/10 Milky Way Image productions I have seen that I would recommend above this: The Longest Nite, The Mission, Running Out of Time.
