What's wrong with this supposedly good movie
1) Bad screenplay, messy and sometimes clueless. 2) Bad editing. But the worst came from 3) The heavily accented localized Chinese dialect is a fatal flaw of this actually not bad movie. I don't think most of the Chinese would be able to understand what the darn dialog speaking between or among the characters unless he or she is luckily from that region of China. The absurd English subtitles could only do little to help understanding what's going on in this movie, because even the subtitles contributor(s) didn't understand what's really going on. So all he (or they?) could translate were "Mobile phone vibrating....crying loudly..." Well, these are not subtitles, but only provided as CC for the hearing aid. Since the dialog so hard to understand, so most of the time, it's like a guessing game to the audiences who got to translate for themselves and interpret by the on-going storyline or scenarios, but it's not easy as you could achieve. Dialog that even typical Chinese couldn't understand, added up the lousy editing and the clueless directing, all we could do was just followed the guy's desperate search of the murderer. He's guessing, we're guessing too. And most of the time, we just didn't know what they really talked about.

This is a quite interesting WHODUNIT movie. The usual suspect is an unjustified ordinary guy who's easily been framed and becomes the easy victim for the police to solve and close the murder case. "I swear I didn't do it!" in China is a useless protest. What make this film even more absurd is the suspect has to prove his innocence in two days by finding the real murderer himself. This scenario is even more stupid and impossible when the murder case happened in China. The suspect may already be cuffed first and locked up in jail, "Guilty until proved innocent" is the modern Chinese legal system, otherwise there should be so many innocent but politically incorrect citizens sentenced to long jail times.
