Critic Reviews for That Demon Within (Mo Jing)
Pulp done with passion can be its own reward, as the veteran Hong Kong filmmaker Dante Lam shows with his feverish cop thriller "That Demon Within."
[The] Stephen King-like angle is the richest material in "That Demon Within," which is otherwise another tale of gangsters turning against one another.
This Hong Kong import can't resist the urge to dumb down a fascinating premise for the sake of mass consumption.
There's a half-realized, half-haunting Hitchcockian psychodrama buried somewhere within "That Demon Within." What's on the surface plays more like Wong and Lam simply forgot to take their meds.
When "That Demon Within" finally burns down, all that's left is char and ash.
Audience Reviews for That Demon Within (Mo Jing)
The premise for this film had so much potential, but director Dante Lam couldn't resist the urge to dumb it down for the mainstream media. Somewhat playing out like a Hong Kong Fight Club, That Demon Within pits a man against himself, struggling to come to terms with his past. Overall, the production value is nice, but the action poorly choreographed and the flashbacks brutally redundant. This is just another film that could have been something great, but lacked subtlety.
