Storyline

A man or woman who loses his wife is called a widower or widow. A child who loses his parents is called an orphan. What do you call a parent who loses his child?" Ah Huat, a struggling and obnoxious 40-year-old taxi-driver, is a complete failure. His wife left him years ago. And his only son - Wei Siang - is frequently neglected. One day, Wei Siang is abducted at a shopping mall, in a case of mistaken identity. The kidnapper, Ah Hu, tortures the boy and demands a $1,000,000 ransom. Ah Huat gives up everything in his life to raise the money, but Ah Hu reneges on the exchange and demands more money. Unable to raise the second ransom, Lim descends into madness and grief, and takes the most extreme retaliatory measure: He kidnaps Ah Hu's child. Written by Anonymous

Nice Budget movie
7 December 2010 | by (Singapore) – See all my reviews

A good film that is worth watching. Although this is not a movie with Hollywood-style action pack, but the storyline may worth giving it a try. However, there is a few loop holes in the plot.

Actors performance are not bad. I would like to say this movie is not a bad one in view of the budget they have for production. But don't have a high expectation.

-----------------------SPOILER ---------------------------------

In the end of the movie, they did not conclude the consequence of what (lee) did, like should he be jailed or fine even though he is alive. The polices in the movie did not seems to help enough though.

The police should get suspicious when (lee) plan to make a police report and yet leaving the scene immediately with that worry expression whiteout completing the report after receiving a call from the kidnapper.

Lastly, why did the kidnapper hit the van towards the hostage after receiving the money and caused himself injury and eventually death. I always though the kidnapper will escape when driving off the taxi
