Good film - worth watching - could be better though
5 April 2007 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

A good film all round, nice cinematography, good acting.

My only criticism of the film is that unlike other murder mystery / crime solving films - this one shows you the culprit from the beginning

  • who know who done it, so there's little by way of suspense in solving


a crime.

The only surprise is discovering that some of the characters aren't quite who they seem.

Also you would think that an actress of Shu Qi' stature would have a more meaningful role - she just seems to be there as Takeshi's girl friend. That's it.

That being said, it's a film worth worth watching.
