Movie Review: Murderer《殺人犯》


My Rating: 1Stars

This evening I saw the movie Murderer at AMC Theater, Pacific Place, Hong Kong. Another one of the movies from my Must See Movies list. After seeing the movie in person I had to remove it from my Must See Movies list.

Yes, it was that bad. If it was not for Aaron Kwok the movie would have easily become one of Hong Kong’s many B-movies. Fans of Kwok will be angry with me, but I felt that every scene Kwok was in he was trying to imitate Jack Nicholson and Johnny Depp. I guess in a way it was necessary due to the mental state of the character, Inspector Ling, he was playing. In comparison the supporting actors in the movie was worst, especially Josie Ho

I believe the director, Hsien-yang Chou, has much to do with the down fall of this movie and not to mention the writing duo Chi-long To and Roy Chow Hin Yeung. They are all new to the movie industry expect for To. Not only is the dialogue and directions are bad, the special effects are also very unbelievable.

Unless you’re a fan of Kwok I suggest you give this a miss.

  1. I am not a fans of Hong Kong movies, it is not my surprise that it deserves 1 penguin. Don't know why Hong Kong movie industry is such pathetic. All the themes are always around crimes and investigations. Nowadays, everyone says need diversifications, people want to see more different themes and topics instead. If Hong Kong movie industry still continue like this. I don't think it can survive. Besides that, the theme of the movie is very important too, what you choose to decide to put on stage somehow would affect those mentally immature audience in the society. I'm begging those movie makers, please stop making these kinds of movies again, why not choose something nice, something healthy, something positive and meaningful to film, this would be a big thanks!
