Pain to see this.
25 January 2007 | by (Singapore) – See all my reviews

All right, it is a so-so movie. I was disappointed the film had no mystery, the main point watching this is the mystery but I did not see it. The story is somehow confusing as they jumped from one scene to another. Hei and Bong were solving a case which Susan's so-called father was murdered. Now the director want to make you feel how the characters is feeling. That's pain. No mystery but is painful. No mystery, if the directors had not chosen to show the bad guy too early, it would had been better. But that's not the main point in this movie, the directors want the pain. The cast and the story is just okay, with the beautiful music as in the background, the film is okay. And the music sent chills up my spine, it is somehow spooky. If you wanna kill some time, watch it on DVD. Not really worth watching this in cinema. Those who want to crack a mystery, this is not for you.
