    An ok thriller from Hong Kong. The story is a bit messy and it really could have done with a bit more excitement and action, but it passes the time well enough. Could have been a lot better though.

    This film may be disappointing to many. This is more of a crime drama, rather than an action adventure that we usually see from director Benny Chan.<p>The story has potential as it revolves around 3 different characters whose lives become intertwined because of a murder. It is nice to see the movie jump around to each character, but what really hurts is that a little too much time is spent on Aaron Kwok's character, who is quite frankly, annoying to watch at times. For a crime thriller this film is OK. It does have its share of surprises and the ending is a little eventful. Of course this isn't your straight up cops and robbers storyline. Yes, one of the characters is a cop, one is an assassin, and the other a lawyer, but as I previously mentioned it is more about the 3 characters themselves as opposed to the good guy hunting down the bad guy.</p><p>There is some action in here and the foot chase is a good one. The small amount of one-on-one fight scenes are so-so and this is because the main actors aren't known for their martial arts. I know Benny Chan likes his martial arts action, but this film isn't made for it.</p><p>The acting is a little bit of a letdown. It isn't bad, but I've seen better. Aaron Kwok is just bland except when he is mad. Ekin Cheng isn't too bad and the same goes for Daniel Wu. Angelica Lee and Ning Jing are the females to watch out for. Ning Jing is still quite attractive with her shaved head.</p><p><i>Divergence</i> is another crime thriller that will find the hearts of some, but at the end of the day you find yourself not caring about the characters, thus making this a film to slowly fade away in the back of your mind.

    Nice psychological/action thriller.

    While this was a good film, I have to say I was a little let down. For a movie that won 4 Hong Kong Academy Awards, I was expecting more. That isn't to take away from the film, I enjoyed the movie. Had some good one on one fight scenes and a variety of action sequences. It kept me watching to see how it was going to unfold. I had to laugh though, apparently in Hong Kong when an accident happens, apparently people forget what brake is and everyone just keeps driving into the cars. But yeah, I know, happens in all action films, I was just reminded.
