Storyline

A mutilated corpse appears to be a straightforward case of revenge killing, but as Inspector Lam zeroes in on the ex-con prime suspect, he finds himself confronting a web of lies. To reach the truth, Lam must delve into the details of a 20-year-old case for answers (a case in which he finds himself to have had an incidental part). Written by Anonymous / revised by statmanjeff

Intelligent thriller
30 April 2019 | by me-389-325519See all my reviews

Poignant and intelligent thriller. A little over acted but great storyline and some haunting scenes. The "explanation" at the end was a little over the top but I can live with it.

Certainly way better than the average Hollywood fodder. That said I have no doubt it will be remade by some lazy Hollywood studio.
