Critic Reviews

  1. 90
    A rich and challenging variation on the serial-killer genre.
  2. Reviewed by: Richard Corliss
    From its first shot, of a mangled car high up in the branches of a tree, this cool, handsome thriller proceeds with an elliptical elegance.
  3. 80
    Inoffensively glib and innocuously arty.
  4. The picture is a little too pretentious to achieve its artistic and emotional goals, but its ambition and imagination are impressive at times.
  5. 60
    Mr. Law doesn't disgrace himself here, though he doesn't have much to do, and the director, Po Chih Leong, is deft at creating atmosphere, but it's an atmosphere we've all seen before.
  6. With all the brooding, stylized closeups of blood, crosses and cigarettes, the overall effect is fashion-mag chic -- not, as intended, intellectual thriller.
  7. Nearly strangles in its own stylishness but benefits from smoldering performances.
  8. 39
    An orgy of bad decisions and cheap ideas.
  9. Reviewed by: Derek Elley
    Starts intriguingly but ends up thrashing around as a toothless wonder.

    Overall very good, with stunning preformances from the leads, and begins like an unique, smart thriller, but ends like your average slasher flick.
