..in my top 10 movies of 2015...
23 February 2016 | by (ny ny) – See all my reviews

wow...the 2 hrs and change just flew by. i did'nt want this movie to end. this is a movie for people who love good movies. most of the people who dislike the movie were mislead into thinking it had some action in it. .......there is no action in this movie...not one iota.... it had suspenseful moments galore though. ex-gangsters and gangsters would totally dig this movie...hahaha...no joke. totally loved the scenes of normal Chinese life and there was a lot of that shown too. very very good suspense thriller movie with its own message to tell. old china clashes with new china head-on...who wins? watch the movie to find out...and people expecting any sort of action....stay away from this movie.
