Movie Info

In this tense thriller, Ma Shan (Wen Jiang) is a Chinese police detective who awakes one morning after a night of heavy drinking at his sister's wedding reception to discover that his gun has been stolen. Since only police officers are allowed to carry firearms, Ma Shan is alarmed about the deadly possibilities of the theft, and he sets out to find his weapon; however, the memories of Ma Shan's friends are as hazy as his own regarding the wedding, and no one can tell who drove him home. The situation comes to a head when Ma Shan's former girlfriend arrives in town for a visit and is soon found shot dead with the bullets matching those used in his gun. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi

All Critics (8) | Top Critics (2)

Viewers who thought they were watching a comedy will be left scratching their heads when it turns into a mundane murder mystery.

The busy direction is often too much at odds with the film and is unwarranted with an actor like Jiang Wen.

At the film's core is a mystery that isn't intriguing...

Reel Film Reviews

The climatic revelation of who's responsible seems plucked from the air, but Chuan's theme of memory reconstructed from external eyewitnesses is intriguing
