Worst CAT III film ever made?
I have seen many CAT III films (exploitation movies produced in Hong Kong) and this must be the worst of them, the film is a mix between a serial killer film, a thriller and an action flick.
The film is about Ming, a famous photographer that is suspected of killing womens and committing necrophilia on their bodies, his buddy (who's a cop, played by Wai Lam) embarks in a quest to clear Ming's name.
Alexander Lo Rei plays one of the cops (and he is also the action director...or action choreographer, whatever you call it), but not even his performance saves this film from being a forgettable and boring experience.
The action scenes aren't that great, they don't do nothing to keep your eyes glued to the screen, also, the subtitles have some spelling mistakes and other laughable errors (one of them was something like: "You should stop dealing drags!" and yes, they spell "drags" instead of "drugs").
There's some stolen music from "A Nightmare from Elm Street 3: Dream Warriors", also, there's a scene that takes place in a bar/club and the place has some nazi decorations.
As i said, the film was given a CAT III rating by the Hong Kong censors (which is the equivalent of the NC-17 rating or X), but the CAT III elements aren't that much, some female nudity and some blood during the murder scenes.
I actually like these kind of mixture of genres, but this film does NOTHING to keep your attention to the screen, this film is just BORING.
One other thing, i can't find the director's credit...maybe he wasn't credited in his English name.
