Sometimes, even Wong Jing can surprise us and make a good movie. This is probably as rare as the prospect of finding a seat during a peak hour train ride. This is simply an Andy Lau with his face and presence written all over it. What set the film apart from being great is that it is not coherent and rather uneven. The relationship between Gigi Leung and Lau is also rather forceful than running the course of nature. Still, this is easily a good film without the usual Wong Jing’s antics; the result is an engaging film that might just make you emote a little as well. A good ride…
Neo rates it 7.5/10.
