Movie Info

Vivian Wu ("The Pillow Book," "Eve and the Fire Horse") plays Meili, an interpreter who becomes an angel of vengeance when her husband is shot dead on his way to sign a joint-venture contract. The appearance of an enigmatic American (Richard Burgi, Desperate Housewives) who claims to be a kind of troubleshooter for companies draws her into a web of deceit, love and guilt in this time bending murder mystery that is part Memento and part Lover. -- (C) Indican

"Shanghai Red" largely emerges as a tantalizing, involving thriller.

Top Critic

Juxtaposing a litany of opposing thematic elements, ranging from honor vs. disgrace to tradition vs. modernization to trust vs. duplicity, this multi-layered mystery shapes up like a modern morality play of Shakespearean proportions.

Shanghai Red has an effective central performance by Vivian Wu (The Joy Luck Club), but the very uneven screenplay causes the film to lose steam.
