A must-see with interesting twist, 4 November 2005
Author: CloudedYoda from Australia

I bought this DVD after watching Infernal Affairs trilogy. The fact that I kept it for over 6 months before watching it shows that I didn't have much faith in this movie (as there wasn't much hype about it).

This movie has an amazing twist at the end that made watching it worthwhile. Like many, I hit myself in the head saying "Damn, why didn't I notice the hints throughout the entire movie before they reveal the twisted ending".

Although there were certain scenes that don't seem right (i.e. the guy who sells the guns wears a weird coat, why being a gangster is the only profession they can think of), I would still recommend it as a must-see.

I liken this to "The Others", a movie where you couldn't quite figure out why they spend so much time on many unnecessary scenes when you expect a predictable ending. But at the end, the twist tied all the knots and leave your mouth wide open.
