Very Clever
4 May 2017 | by avery-12See all my reviews

Battle Of Memories is a very good movie. It keeps you guessing until the very end. You will guess a number of times as you watch this movie but I don't think you'll figure it out. It's very engrossing and a little disturbing. It's a sci fi crime 'whodunnit' drama set in the near future. Excellent acting and cinematography.

This is a Chinese movie but I saw it with subtitles in English as well as Mandarin.

The actors gave great performances, especially Yang Zishan, Huang Bo, Xu Jinglei, Duan Yihong, Hsu Wei‑ning. The acting plus the cinematography made this intellectual sci-fi movie compelling and very believable.
