Storyline

A man is found dead inside an apartment with a strange noise, "Help. Help!" next to the body. Detective Frank Lam arrives at the scene with his commanding officer Yip Sir to find the sole survivor and eye witness. Yip Sir is convinced the deceased, Henry Tsui is killed by his partner in crime, Sunny Wong when they had a fight over how to divvy up the loot from an armed robbery a month ago. When Frank confronts Sunny, Sunny denies all allegations and names Yip Sir as the killer. Frank's only hope in cracking the case lies in the not-so-human witness left at the scene of the crime.

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.
