Nightfall -- As Lam zeroes in on a killer from the past, the murder appears to be a straightforward case of revenge. But the more that Lam pursues his suspect, the deeper he falls into a web of lies. To find the truth, Lam must dig into a 20 year-old case for answers.

When the movie falls, 14 November 2012
Author: kosmasp

A solid try/stab at a crime thriller. Unfortunately this isn't as good as you might hope for. It aims high but can't quite deliver on that promise. Apart from story flaws (and/or the predictability of its twists and turns) even some of the well known actors are a bit of a letdown. Especially the "villain" of the piece goes really OTT in a very bad way that is.

You can still watch the movie and enjoy it, it's just that you might want to use that time and watch a better movie. The thrill factor isn't that high, unless you really can avoid guessing where this is heading. I can't imagine how that would be possible, but who knows. Not completely bad, but really not good either
