Double Vision
2003
In this thriller, whistle-blower Huang Huo-to (Tony Leung Ka Fai) finds the courage to report corruption in the police department and is punished by being demoted to a job as a foreign liaison officer. His fate quickly changes when he's asked to help FBI agent Kevin Richter track down a serial killer with a ghoulish trademark. Can they stop him before he kills another helpless soul?

Scott Hardie: “It ruled.”

I suppose this supernatural thriller is a little far-fetched at times, but a lot of that can be written off by the film’s main conceit, revealed by the surly protagonist in a terse conversation with the American about his religious beliefs. This film primarily exploits those beliefs for entertainment value, but it gets a hell of a good murder mystery out of them. I haven’t seen a crime thriller this densely plotted since the similarly excellent “Minority Report.” Leung and Liu convince us that they’ve had marriage problems for a long time, and Morse is as nicely understated as always.
