How can such highly renowned Chinese actors like Andy Lau and Eric Tsang be attached to such a poorly cliche-driven script is beyond me.

This is one of the films that tries to be smarter than the audience in the sense that we're just mindless fools not paying any attention to the story and who wouldn't blame them considering this story fails to attract any attention as you watch it.

It follows a thief who's been in the slammer for five years and gets released only to start thieving again... like two minutes after his release. Right away, plausibility thrown into the deepest part of space. Questions like what's he been doing the whole time in prison or how is it a master thief only gets five years? He's probably not that good considering he got caught--questions like those are ignored all throughout so don't bother asking.

Everyone in this plays such a cliche role where nothing surprisingly happens and when something does, you see it even before the movie was written. It's not remotely mysterious in any form. All the twists and turns are so choreographed that it's not even natural, that the actors are just going through the motions, getting a hefty paycheck with little to no motivation to push what they know is a poor story.

If this was the last movie on Earth, I'd find something better to do. Read a book, fool around with a significant other. There are better things in life than to waste two hours watching the cheesiest heist film in all of cinematic history.
