Victim | Chicago Reader


Hong Kong action meister Ringo Lam (City on Fire) puts a supernatural spin on this 1999 police drama. Quick-tempered cop Tony Leung Kai-fai (The Lover) doubts the truthfulness of crime victim Lau Ching-wan, who's been kidnapped by a vicious gang and then abandoned in a haunted hotel. A jealous man once hacked his family to pieces in the hotel, and the grisly tale supposedly has emotional ramifications for the cop and the kidnap victim, both of whose personal relationships are under stress. To stay topical Lam includes anxiety over interest rates, a raid on the plant that mints paper currency, and all the latest high-tech gadgets, but they're just wallpaper setting off the sadistic fights and hair-raising chase scenes.
