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.Written by
Chinese Police Can't Be As Stupid As This Film Portrays Them.
The good? Frenetic action, blood spurts, many twists and turns. There was no shortage of violence for all you gore hounds. Also, they kept any crocodile tears behaviour from characters to a pleasing minimum. Generally, acting was fine as well as cinematography and editing.
The bad? Too much sappy background music and sloppy direction. There were simply preposterous shenanigans that allowed for the continuation of the movie but, in real life, made no sense. And again, like in so many Asian films, the police officers come off as Keystone Cops - clumsy, weak, imbeciles in the flesh. Those sad tropes really hurt this otherwise good film.
