Ching yan (The Beast Stalker) Reviews
When a cop falls onto dark times after accidentally shooting a young girl in a high speed pursuit, he tries to make it up by rescuing the girl's sister, who falls victim to a kidnapping.
With the film-makers proving very early on that they aren't afraid to kill child characters in this action flick, the sense of danger is ever present. And the story ties a bunch of storylines around one event, which I won't spoil here, but actually adds a lot of depth to this film.
A very fine actioner.
The story is great; I love how everything ties in together. There's a major plothole late in the movie but I'll live with it.
Dante Lam is the anti-Benny Chan, who directed the often compared "Connected". Dante's movie has much more depth. Hell, I think I had tears in a couple scenes.
P.S. The supporting actors are under-appreciated but gave an excellent performance, namely Uncle "Jee" and "Cousin" Kwok Jing Hung.
As you can tell, I LOVED THIS MOVIE!!
Edit: After seeing Dante Lam's next film "The Stool Piegon", I am scaling back my praises for him.
