      Audience Member Everybody just wants something from you. A mute man that has been in jail for almost twenty years is released and appears to have conducted a straightforward revenge killing. However, as a detective investigates the murder, he uncovers a string of lies that makes the crime look less straightforward. The detective will need to research the original crime of the suspect twenty years ago to help determine what happened in the most recent murder. "You should find it shameful too." Rioy Hin Yeung Chow, director of Murderer and Rise of the Legend, delivers Nightfall. The storyline for this picture is interesting and fun to watch unfold with a few decent action sequences. The acting was okay and the dialogue was average. "He hardened himself up like steel." I randomly came across this on Netflix and decided to add it to the queue. This was fairly good and had some great character plots and subplots and did keep me interested from beginning to end. I wouldn't say this was special, in an Ishii the Killer kind of way, but it is worth a viewing if you enjoy the genre. "I will always be with you." Grade: C+ Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/19/23 Full Review dave j Wednesday, May 21, 2014 (2012) Nightfall (In Chinese with English subtitles) CRIME THRILLER/ MYSTERY Co-written and directed by Chow Hin Yeung Roy starring Simon Yam as homicide detective George Lam investigating a dead body found in the ocean near some rocks. Because it was so disfigured, they had to use DNA to uncover his identity. And as it turns out, he's supposed to be this wealthy architecture, a father of twin daughters named Han Tsui (Michael Wong) who apparently send this guy named Wong Yuen-yeung (Nick Cheng) in prison for the murder of one of his daughters. Except that not everything is what it appears to be, as more revelations are uncovered. This movie is extremely predictable, awful, overrated, and overacted. Some of the existing problems is the wife never report the husband missing, nor was there a proper burial of him either. And the fact if DNA was able to find the identity, how come it wasn't used during the killing of the daughter! And since when can someone assault a police officer without being charged? I guess in Hong Kong which is where the movie was made, citizens can assault policemen whenever they want. It is these questions and more this film is lousy movie. This movie is 'all style, no substance' 1 star out of 4 Rated 1.5 out of 5 stars 03/30/23 Full Review Audience Member The story premise, twist & turn are ok; but then everything else is so over-the-top during execution. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 02/04/23 Full Review Audience Member Once again the Hong Kong film kids take a simple subject and turn it into a cinematic experience that no US movie seems to be able to ever do sans a blue moon. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/04/23 Full Review Audience Member This is one of the most beautiful thriller I have seen lately. Beautiful photo, very good acting, and a very interesting script, intelligent and original. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/23/23 Full Review Audience Member Nightfall is a decent and semi-interesting murder mystery due to the forces of Simon Yam and Nick Cheung. They pretty much carry the movie with their subtle and nuanced performances, in this twisty detective story about a murdered opera singer. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/05/23 Full Review Read all reviews
