Average HK thriller to pass the time.
An OK thriller here from Hong Kong, where taxi driver Chang Hsin Lung (Alfred Cheung) is obsessed with TV news reporter Jenny Tung (Maggie Cheung). He attempts to gain her affection by assisting her in providing minor news events to cover, but is interfered by her arrogant lawyer boyfriend, John Liu (Lawrence Ng). He tells Lung that Tung is more interested in more major news stories, so, Lung helps Jenny cover the news on a string of murders plaguing the city, but, Jenny thinks Lung himself might have committed the crimes.
It's a movie that is thrilling at first, but looses steam a little bit as the movie progresses. There's not really a lot of scary moments, but there are some suspense in the parts where the movie will leave you guessing whether the male lead is really the villain in the film.
The acting was OK, though. Overall, it's quite an average thriller to pass the time.
