The Skinny: Uninteresting thriller/drama that marks another wasted performance for Ada Choi. Anthony Wong: don't you have better things to do?
 
Review
by Kozo:
Cheap-as-hell thriller/drama that has some interesting ideas, but also a poor script and shoddy direction. Ada Choi is a woman on death row who was raped by the sadistic Anthony Wong. She only married him to procure money for boyfriend Michael Tse, but Anthony betrays them both and has his way with her. It turns out that Mike is just as scummy, and Ada is left to the wolves - who are more than happy to consume her. Only Chan Ji-Peng as her barrister will help her. Sadly, he can't help the movie, which is a choppy melodrama with no truly interesting features. Ada Choi is an actress with promise, but she ends up starring in shoddy cut-rate productions instead of better fare. Her quality work seems to be in supporting roles, i.e. Once Upon a Time in Triad Society 2 or The Golden Girls. Her TV work is popular, however. Too bad she canít get better movie leads. (Kozo 1998)
