Ideas behind this film can only be described as a strange cocktail between the hit film Ghost and Korean blockbuster Failan. Watching the film through I could feel myself going round in circles. On one hand I could see this being an un-popular masterpiece. On the other I could see the film as a desperate attempt by the 'new generation' of Hong Kong cinema to follow in the footsteps of their prestigious past. The plot is one that could be told in such a better way. Being directed poorly and the exceptionally 'cheap' special effects really let the movie down. Karena lam and Nicholas Tse did what they could with what little they had to work with. As the movie prolongs, the outcome becomes obvious. Full marks for a story, full marks on acting. But the way in which the director portrays this story offended me. Scripted, I am sure this movie would look appealing to any actress or actor. BUT WAS AN INCREDIBLE LET DOWN. This is one film I really wouldn't mind the USA ripping off. Purely because they could do it better. After seeing this film, I am sure that no reputable director would touch this with a stick. This film will go in the waste bin of appalling attempts of Hong Kong cinema to revive itself after the success in the 70's- late1990's If you want a Tip.....go buy Failan
