[Friday-24] Murderer (2009)

Murderer (2009) is a Hong Kong crime-mystery-thriller film, starring Aaron Kwok as the "murderer".

Aaron Kwok is Ling Guang, a police detective involved in an investigation of a series of gruesome murders known as the "bloodletting murders". The problem is, as he was probing further into the case, every piece of evidence seemed to pin him down as the prime suspect.

Okay, so how did the film end? To me, it ended in a rather ridiculously stupid way. Yes, the movie did end with a twist, I'd say, an unexpected twist. But, of all twist-endings, this?

You might want to know whether Aaron Kwok is really the murderer in this movie. Hmmm... it's hard to say. You've to watch it.

Was he framed? Hmmm... partly.

Was he criminally insane? Hmmm... well, it's not really that way.

Was his acting convincing? Hmmm... I think he tried too hard to get into this character. So, his acting became rather unnatural and weird at times. I'd say he overreacted in certain scenes. But, he did a good job with that menacing, cold stare and odd-looking, blank facial expression.

The way this movie was shot reminded me of Body 19, a Thai horror film. I think the filmmakers of "Murderer" tried to incorporate some brilliant pointers from these excellent Thai filmmakers - in terms of detailed portrayal of splattered blood, gore, and flashbacks. However, I'd say, it didn't work out brilliantly and it's really below expectation.

One thing, it'd better if they change the color of the dye or whatever that was used in the bloody scenes. It's really too fake! If you've watched Thai & Korean slashers, you'll spot the tremendous difference of the color of blood. It makes a big difference, seriously.

Anyway, I won't recommend this movie. If you insist of watching it, good luck then. :P
