At the beginning of the movie, when the main character is cutting his ear off, we can clearly see the half of it. (at around 63 mins) when the ear unfolds from the bandage we see a whole piece of it. See more »

a movie you must watch
29 October 2008 | by (Hong Kong) – See all my reviews

When i come out from the cinema,the first thing i want to do is buy one more ticket and watch this film again. Because if you miss a little part of this movie, maybe you will be confused,and can't understand the story. So, the night before you watch this movie, please sleep earlier, and keep a clear mind. The story of this movie is about a "crazy" former police(Bun) helping a police on an investigation of an series of recent heists and murders. Bun has the ability see into a person's inner personality ( as ghost in the movie ), everyone has ghosts in their mind, sometimes you can see other people's ghost, but maybe you can't see yours or you will be blind to your ghost. This is the best Hong Kong movie ever. I think this movie should win more award and Lau Ching Wan will be all time best actor in Hong Kong. Hope Johnny To and Wai Ka Fai will bring more new idea ,new stuff, and more more more good movie for Hong Kong.
