Storyline

Simon Yam plays a straight laced family man who one day is convicted of a crime he says he didn't do. But, with the police nailing him with scientific evidence (dust and cloth fibers) he is convicted of first degree murder and sentenced to death. His wife in desperation turns to prostitution to support herself and her young daughter while she tries in vain to get her husband released. Cecilia Yip plays the wife and Bill Tung plays a detective who does't fully trust scientific evidence solely to arrest someone. Written by Joseph P. Ulibas <mculibas@cwnet.com>

Category III Classics: Final Judgement.
8 March 2004 | by Captain_CouthSee all my reviews

Final Judgement (1993) stars Hong Kong's favorite tragic-couple Simon Yam and Cecilla Yip. Simon Yam plays a hard working family man who's life is turned upside down one fateful night when he's accused of a horrific rape and murder of a young woman. After a well publicized trial and with the prosecution using scientific evidence, Simon Yam is sent off to the big house. But wait, that's just the beginning! Cecilla Yip plays his faithful wife who'll do anything to see her husband released from prison. Is he guilty or innocent? You decide!!

Bill Tung co-stars as a retired police inspector puzzled by the case, Esther Kwan (with horn rim glasses) as a reporter who's doing a magazine article on the case and Paul Chiang (a.k.a. Paul Chu, Chun Pei) as a famous defense lawyer who agree's to help Tung with her case. Great film but depressing film.

Highly recommended.
