What attracted me to this film was, of course, Andy Lau, from Infernal Affairs, and Infernal Affairs III. He played Wang Bo, have of a team of grifters. The other half was Rene Liu as Wang Li, who wants to quit and lead a normal life. She was really good in her part.
Unfortunately, she meets a villager named Sha Gen (Baoqiang Wang), who has amassed a bankroll and doesn't believe there are thieves in the world. He is travelling by train, a train full of professionals led by Uncle Li (You Ge). She decides to travel along to protect him. The action takes place entirely on the train.
Not sure that I like the ending.
