Cast & Credits
The story is about two twin brothers who have been separated at birth, and knew nothing of each other's existence until the present day. The older brother, Szeto Shun grew up in a stable environment with family, while the younger brother, Cheng Nik Hang, grew up in a bad environment without a stable family setting. They finally get the chance to meet after thirty years of separation due to an arson case, where Szeto Shun becomes suspected for the crime. Out to seek evidence that he is innocent, Szeto Shun runs into Cheng Nik Hang who now believes that the Szeto's are his family. As the story progresses, the two brothers both find themselves liking the same girl, and from there everything spirals out of control.
I thought that the story was very well put together. It was very elaborate and as you watch, the story pieces together flawlessly. I really liked how both of the brothers had shared similar characteristics: smart and sharp-eyed. Overall, there is somewhat character development, and I wish there was more to Szeto Shun and Jan's relationship. Although, I did love the relationship shared between Tai Fu Lung and Agatha/Fa. I also think that the most significant character development was seen in Tai Fu Lung. His willingness to change for Agatha was really moving, especially when he buys her a bracelet and proposes to her with a ring he bought using money he made through blood, sweat, and tears.
Ultimately the "eye in the sky" refers to the usage of security footage solve problems as well as hide secrets.
