Solid, violent thriller starring Leon Lai, who plays a cop whose wife is assassinated in retaliation for his arresting Night', a dangerous mob boss. He quits and starts a quiet life on a scenic island, but when a mysterious Japanese girl who resembles his dead missus appears on the scene he finds love again. His peace is shattered when Night is released from jail and seeks revenge! Cue a bloody and tragic finale.
OK, it's a touch melodramatic, and you can tell there isn't going to be a fairytale ending, but this is an enjoyable romantic thriller that looks great and is well worth watching. Lai is always good value and Asaka Seto is a beautiful and enigmatic actress. Recommended.
