totally watchable
27 September 2009 | by thomas-chia05See all my reviews

if you like Johnnie's movies, this should be among your list remarkably, this movie is shot with only few characters but to an excellent portrayal not much talking with most of expression & meaning conveyed just by eye or facial movement

the curiosity & intense is able to get you focus through the entire movie unexpected death scenes much alike to the final destinations fame gives it extra entertainment

it's been quite some time we have enjoyed great hong Kong films since infernal affairs & exiled go watch it (definitely better than vengeance)
