L² Comment:
Its been such a long time didn't see Andy & Sammi appeared in the same movie which directed by Johnnie To. We can see that Sammi has improve a lot on her acting skill, not too over like last time. The storyline is ok, especially on the investigating part; however i think its a bit too draggy in certain part.
