Review

A star rating of 2 out of 5.

Onetime critic Chen Kuo-fu attempts to cross the divide between art house and the mainstream with this serial killer thriller only to come up way short. The opening segment, in which world-weary Taipei cop Tony Leung Ka-fai investigates a series of inventively grisly murders, is darkly intriguing. But once he's teamed with FBI agent David Morse, the story spirals into culture-clashing caricature and cross-generic flights of fantasy that frequently beggar belief. Arthur Wong's camerawork is energetic and there are some noteworthy supporting performances. But Chen never comes to terms with the tone of a narrative that's riddled with stereotypes and implausibilities.
