Not good enough
14 October 2003 | by See all my reviews

This held so much promise after what i believed was a very good first film 'Running out of time' with Andy Lau.

One of the main problems is the fact that Ekin Cheng is no where near as good as Andy Lau and i found him less intersting annd quite boring to watch. Also the story was incredibly pointless and unexplained, it was very hard to follow and pretty random...

All i can say is that i hope they do not make another one, as the first is a very good film and this was just not up to standard.
