Audience Reviews for Dr. Lamb
Simon Yam goes loco in this wonderful Cat III classic. Truly disturbing scenes mixed with those wacky police and their brutal tactic. First time I saw this, well before I became accustomed to Cat III weirdness it confused the heck out of me. Why were there so many different genres in the same scene. One minute we see a brutal murder scene, played seriously, then there's a "light comical" scene with a dismembered breast. Now I love that crazy crap, but boy, it's not for the faint hearted.
From these jaded American eyes, the film fails to be a gripping police procedural or creepy look into the mind of a killer. It is successful, though, as a look at how Hong Kong cinema was trying to ape American crime thrillers of the time, down to the lighting and ridiculous police banter. The film is graphic in places, but never believably so.
Dr. Lamb is a classic CAT III Hong Kong produced film by Legened Danny Lee and Simon Yam. I have been putting of seeing it for a long time but i did and well at first opinions are mixed... Story of a Taxi Driver who is a Killer by night but get's busted and tells his life story of the people he has murdered. It's a bit more to it than that but just the basics... I must admit i have stronger opinions for this and Ebola Syndrom but Dr. Lamb is full of gross shocking images but made to be funny at the same time. Well acted and Directed and the gore Effects are just WTF??? (I still have yet to see it Uncut and even the Cut version is Gross...) Overall you can find it at any Hong Kong DVD store and watching it for Halloween can be great.
