Interesting story aided by good performances. Agatha Christie's fans may enjoy the twist.
24 November 2019 | by Fella_shibbySee all my reviews

Three months after a robbery in a jewellery store where many innocents suffered badly, one of the criminal is found dead while the mastermind criminal (Louis Koo) becomes the prime suspect after the loot gets disappeared n the only witness is a talking parrot.

The film moves at a steady pace with lots of action, suspense, gun shootings, chase sequence n nice locations.

The direction is very good n the editing crispy. After viewing this film I looked up in Google to find classes in my local area to learn Mandarin language as I found the subtitles distracting.

The film's whodunnit is a bit similar to Agatha Christie's ........ I dont want to spoil the fun.

Having seen Louis Koo's The White Storm 1 n 2 recently n owning dvds of his films Rob-b-hood n Flashpoint, I kinda started becoming his fan.
