User Reviews: Finally we got a serious enough Chinese movie in 2017. A thriller well scripted and thoroughly developed, well directed with great casting job. This film shall be easily the best film out of China in 2017. It’s quite serious, no clowns, no jerks but serious characters. If I have to be picky a little bit, those thugs hired by the villain in black were the weakest cast, most of them didn’t look intimidated enough and just looked like cardboard figures. Other than these deadbeat gang-bangers, this film is as tight as a live clam’s shells.
The main characters, the explosive expert and his lover, both were extremely well casted and they both performed award winning acting jobs, looked like real and also very subtle at the same time. No wonder they both are the A-list movie stars in China. This a hypertension thriller with the least flaws to be picked about. Having such an opportunity to watch a film like this, I’d say there’s still some hope in the Chinese movie industries.
