The Skinny: Unremarkable cop drama that offers little besides an interesting cast (Roy Cheung and Stephanie Che as the lead actors) and a few plot twists.
by Kozo:
     A misleading title is the first problem for this offbeat but still tepid drama about a cop and the women in his life. The lead is Roy Cheung Yiu-Yeung, who has gotten better acting cred of late thanks to good supporting turns in Beast Cops, The Mission, and Jiang Hu – The Triad Zone. Here he’s an obsessed cop who spends all his time on the beat and away from his wife (Pinky Cheung). Meanwhile, a bizarre murder case happens at their old high school. Teacher Michael Tong is found killed and stuffed into the school’s time capsule. Among the suspects is Stephanie Che Yuen-Yuen, who was Tong’s girlfriend. Cheung believes she’s innocent, and as he begins a friendship with her the two begin to fall in love. 
     After that, the usual sort of cop soap opera plot devices are thrown in, including the bitter wife, jealous lover/boyfriend, etc. Eventually the plot turns up some interesting twists, but it’s all for nothing other than a perfunctory cop exercise that leads us nowhere we haven’t been before. When the final twist is thrown at us, a good question to ask would be: “Why?” Other than aiming for random nihilism or simply trying to jack over the audience, the movie accomplishes nothing novel. At the very least, I’d hope that Stephanie Che can find better projects to showcase her presence. Roy Cheung does fine, but he’s still a better supporting performer than a lead. (Kozo 2001)
