This intriguing mystery-thriller with supernatural overtones is entertaining on several levels. Those who seek out Hong Kong film only for fight sequences and gun battles should steer clear of this more complex film. By "more complex" I am not implying that this is an art film; rather, this is an enjoyable Hong Kong pop film with a few twists that make it all the more interesting.
Especially recommended for those who are new to Hong Kong popular cinema. Current fans of HK cinema who can tolerate an offbeat storyline without lots of gangbanging ought to give it a try. The leads are good; actress Michelle Reis is especially spirited and sexy.
