Storyline

When veteran detective Hei finds out that his father-in-law, the billionaire benefactor Kim, is gruesomely murdered in his palatial mansion, he enlists the assistance of his former partner turned private detective, Bong. On the surface, the murder smacks of a vendetta that has taken a lifetime to fulfill. But no sooner has Bong agreed to crack the case with Hei than he realizes nothing is what it appears to be. Undoubtedly, they are after a monster in a perfect crime: every detail was meticulously orchestrated, every motive conveniently justifiable, and every culprit and potential witness mysteriously eliminated. But Bong has his own demon to fight over the suicide of his pregnant girlfriend. As he digs deeper and deeper into the case, he starts grappling with the suspicion that the man they hunt is someone very close to them, someone on the verge of a total breakdown.

Good film - worth watching - could be better though
5 April 2007 | by mhmailingsSee all my reviews

A good film all round, nice cinematography, good acting.

My only criticism of the film is that unlike other murder mystery / crime solving films - this one shows you the culprit from the beginning - who know who done it, so there's little by way of suspense in solving a crime.

The only surprise is discovering that some of the characters aren't quite who they seem.

Also you would think that an actress of Shu Qi' stature would have a more meaningful role - she just seems to be there as Takeshi's girl friend. That's it.

That being said, it's a film worth worth watching.
