Lu Xiao Xing is a rookie cop when one night, she abandons her post to find her brother, an aspiring singer, and bring him back home after his constant rebellion. As they fight in the car, Xiao Xing loses control of the vehicle and crashes into a truck. As a result of the accident, her brother dies and she is left blind.
Three years later, Xiao Xing is living life as a blind woman. Amidst a string of female disappearances in the city, she tries unsuccessfully to persuade her former police academy senior to allow her another chance at being an officer. Upset and unable to come to terms with the rejection and her brother's death three years ago, Xiao Xing faces a weird experience when she calls for taxi. Add Synopsis In Portuguese

I really enjoyed this movie. I have watched both Korean and this version, in my opinion I think this is better. First, I think I enjoyed this more because the movie is new, and I really like that they use it to alert the people who we meet through phone apps and stuff. Also, this one tells more about the criminal, about his story.
The movie is good, got me hooked all the time. Lu Han acting was pretty good, I wasn't expecting it haha
The female lead also did a great job, I felt her emotions and pain.
You should watch because is a really nice thriller and action.

The witness is based on the korean movie Blind.
I write this review, while having seen both of the movies, at the end I will write a little comparison between the two.
The story is quite attractive and unique if it is your first time to see it. I loved how they could come up with tiny twitst and turns. The story overall was good but not great, it had some flaws.
The oscar should go to the dog. Seriously, Chong Chong was a amazing actor in this movie and so cute too! I liked the two main leads, it is so hard to portray a blind person, so she did a amazing job on this one. But I so didn't feel the connection between the two main leads, and that killed it for me because it could have been so much better. What I eventually really liked was that there was no romance involved, yay!
I liked the music, because.. well we all know why :P.
There sadly was much promotion during the movie for certein brands, that also what I really disliked.

In comparison to the korean movie Blind, I was less involved with this movie. With Blind I really felt with the main leads and dog. Also Blind was wrapped up way better than witness, but I could understand where they were coming from. Overall I didn't disliked witness, but I just liked Blind better for the overall story and character development.

Watch this is you like action, drama, thriller and dogs.
Skip this movie if you are looking for romance.
