Intriguing Murder Mystery from the Master Wong Jin
4 March 2013 | by ebiros2See all my reviews

Tak (Anthony Wong) is a Hong Kong police detective (again). He has a chip on his shoulder because of accidentally shooting a kid who was passing by. He has a good relation between his wife Ling (Sheren Tang) who used to be a cop herself. There's a mysterious murder going on in town. Bodies of beautiful victims who's been staved to exactly 70 lbs. is showing up. Tak goes investigating the TV station where the girls were working at. Just then a kidnapping of one of the actress occurs. Tak is stymied by lack of suspects, but his wife volunteers to look into the dieting clinic all the victims seems to have connections with. Unfortunately, they still come up with no suspects until ....

Not a bad mystery plot. The movie has all the elements of Wong Jin's movies. Good looking girls, high quality production, and compelling story telling. Wong Jin himself appears as the police chief. The psycho serial murder with the diet angle was unique, and shows Wong Jin's mastery in coming up with good stories.

Sheren Tang was great as Anthony Wong's wife. She really added good contrast to Anthony Wong as inspector Tak, and Anthony Wong puts in his usual (great) performance.

This was one of the better movie to come out of Hong Kong in 2005, and is recommended for viewing.
