Chinese movie makers still don't know how to tell stories
Recommend you to read the novel written by Maijia, the movie adaption is much less cunning than the original one. Bai Xiaonian and Jin Shenghuo are too early to dead, making the answer of the puzzle too easy to guess, no challenge no surprise, that is a total failure for a suspense movie. I think to make the movie successful, it should leave the result to the last minute that out of everyone's expectation, and before that, it should make the situation as complex as possible and try to mislead the audience until reveal the truth reasonably at the end. So I still feel the adapter of the movie still does not know how to tell stories, just like many other movie writers in China. I don't know why the film company didn't invite Maijia to write the movie story?I believe he would have done a better job
