...almost a great movie..but..unfortunately, will probably not see the light of day....
17 February 2016 | by (ny ny) – See all my reviews

...a really, really powerful ending.... ....it's got Deng Chao in the lead as supposed baddie.... ....strong movie about redemption and the cost of.... this movie was forcefully edited dued to pressure by government(communist mainland china) and yet it's still an engrossing crime, suspense genre movie. haha...just goes to prove that it's hard to sabotage something that is really really good. i would rate this as top 7 of my favorite movies of 2015. came across it by luck really and decided to take a chance on it because Deng Chao is one of my favorite Chinese actors. i was not the least bit disappointed, the 2hrs. and 20 mins. seem to fly by. short gist of story...3 young men supposedly commit a gruesome crime...murdering a family of 5. then it fast forwards to 7 years down the line and what they are doing with their lives. there is a reveal on top of a reveal at the end. might take a couple of viewings to understand why the men did what they did at the end.
