Angelica Lee shines
16 May 2005 | by (London, UK) – See all my reviews

Angelica Lee plays Elaine, a fashion reporter for a popular newspaper, Citizen's Daily. Things aren't going well in her relationship with Peter, a colleague, and she decides to break up with him over the phone. Later that day, she hears he has been killed in a car crash, one that the police believe it was a drink-drive accident, although there's more than meets the eye. Fei (Anthony Wong), a former cop turned debt collector thinks something sinister has happened, with a possible link to the recent death of a model, a story that Peter was covering. Elaine, her colleague Kevin (Edison Chen) and Fei go in search for some clues.

The plot of this movie isn't really novel, but its execution is fairly good for the bulk of the film. A few twists and turns, particularly the motives of individual characters, are included and add to some suspense felt in this movie. However, not everything about the story is coherent and for me, holes appear here and there, and without giving the game away, I felt not all of them well filled in by the end.

However, despite that, there were some very credible performances from several of the actors. Angelica Lee has once again proved to me that she is a shining talent. Anthony Wong is great as ever and Tony Leung Ka-Fai has some very good short pieces as the Chief Editor. Edison Chen, much that I do think he is also a talent in the HK movie scene, has taken a massive step backwards here in a peripheral role that really befits a new actor rather than a superstar.

Nonetheless, this is a fair film and I do think it is one that's worth a watch, if only to see Angelica Lee.
