Audience Reviews for Saat yan faan (Murderer)

Chow Hin Yeung Roy's Hong Kong crime thriller, Murderer, is something ... and then it's not.The introduction of this 2 hour production is highly intense and enticing. Not a bad way to start a film. However, it does slow down, but this isn't entirely a bad thing. The story is interesting enough and it gets better as more becomes clear. The few murders are quite gruesome and this leaves one waiting for the conclusion to arrive. Then, the film finally unravels itself.The conclusion deserves it's own paragraph. The story takes a sharp turn and the final 45 minutes throws the viewer for a loop. A "I can't believe this is happening" loop, which may or may not turn the viewer off. As a whole, this movie is a mixture of Seven, Oldboy, and Memento; yet, the conclusion makes this film feel original in its own twisted way.Aaron Kwok puts on a good performance, especially in the conclusion. Josie Ho makes a special appearance and the rest of the supporting cast do what they have to do.Murderer is a tough movie to recommend, but the curiosity of many will be aroused from all the reviews. Let this be a warning and take a chance.

Sure it's batshit crazy, but I cannot deny that I didn't find it very entertaining. Great opening scene, though it runs quite long at 2 hours.
