Battling the demon
22 June 2014 | by kosmaspSee all my reviews

Not a physical one that is, but a psychological one if you want to call it that. The movie itself gets pretty intense and I was surprised it was shown at the Internationl Festival in Berlin this February. The stars were also there and the movie was very well received, though I wasn't able to talk to any of them.

Even without them there to watch the movie with you, the movie experience is more than intense and suspenseful. Daniel Wu is also known to Western audiences because he has ventured to the West, but most of the other actors are well known too, just not to the West. The job they're doing is impeachable though. If you like your mystery movies to try new things (especially with its lead roles), you will more than delighted with this
