Now although china comes out with low class products, this one was actually pretty good. It's like watching a darker version of Clue, but you want the secret spy to succeed in his/her mission. This is a well crafted espionage spy movie without the crazy action or anything like that, but it's like watching a intense game of poker with bluff versus bluff and elimination after elimination. The cinematography was also really well done and lot of the aspects of the film is well crafted to the point you will actually care what happens. Even the conclusion increased the impact of the film. Great production value and a pretty good story and performances makes this film, worthwhile to check out.
