Overheard








Director - Felix Chong & Alan Mak

Genre - Action/Drama/Thriller


A company is suspected to be involved in dirty dealings and the HK police assigned a special team to place bugging devices in the said company. 3 technicians in the team who are also close friends become privy to valuable secrets obtained from their round the clock surveillance and decide to use it to their advantage. This in turn becomes a catalyst for an avalanche of trouble for them and changes their lives forever. It is dramatically effective in most parts but don't hope for this to be anything more than a typical HK morality tale. You know the drill. Do good and good will be rewarded doubly on you. Do bad and bad will follow you to your grave. It's Fortune Cookie Philosophy 101 but still quite entertaining.

2.5 STARS!
