Summary: BAD

Well, firstly the other reviewer said that it would only be suited to fans of the cast....well, I'm a fan of Joey Wong & Alex Man, and I wasn't impressed :)

So I guess that sums it up, it's really not worth anyone seeing.

I read Paul Fonoroffs review of this in his book recently and he made a very good point about the film, that being the fact that Joey Wongs character took a month to report her missing husband to the police. There are plenty of other bad points in the script too, indeed making this one of the worst plots in a movie.

I would go more into the story, but it's really not worth it. I saw this years ago, and watched it again yesterday it did start out looking better than I remembered it, but that soon changes after 20 minutes as I began to fall into a deep sleep.

Rating [1.5/5]

Summary: Dull overheated melodrama

With this star-power, it should have been at least entertaining. Joey, particularly, is clearly working hard here, trying to act and, if anything, overacting. Carrie and Alex are two dependables, and Leon Lai's usually good value.
The story is a major problem. I think it was supposed to be a mystery, but it tries to do soap opera and melodrama as well. There's really no focus, and one gets lost. Mind you, the lack of subtitles probably helped too !
Joey looks lovely, and Carrie gives her all, as usual. Alex does a competent job of a difficult role.
The eventual revelation of the murderer, and that character's quick change of demeanour is supposed to be shocking, but it's really rather silly.
Fans of any of the main actors may enjoy bits of this. Not suitable for anyone else.
