"I have watched many movies by Andy Lau in which most were of comedy/romance/street gang-like...so, this movie has a freshness. It talks about Dr. Ken (played by Andy Lau) who is named one of the most promising young scientists in the world and his search for an answer on why his dead fiance (Michelle Rels) has come back to the world. Meanwhile, other top scientists and world contributers are killed in ways that were never used before (nope, not a gun, not poison...more like turning one into powder...). He and his friends begin to suspect that the reappearance of Adele (Rels) and the deaths of the scientists are messages from God that the end of the world is near and that Dr. Ken is the only one that is eligible to save the human race...This is an excellent film with great special effects, music accompliment (including "Why Take Her Away" by Andy Lau), beautiful shots at Prague, and a great cast!"
I really loved this movie, I don't get what everyone else's

"I saw this in the theatre in 1997 and thought it ruled. Andy Lau was brill as the scientist, Anthony Wong is always fantastic, and it was a great supernatural thriller, which is a genre you don't see so much of in HK films. I really enjoyed it completely and I have no idea why anyone else dislikes it--perhaps it's just not what they expect from an HK film? But if you like things like Twin Peaks, Supernatural, Profit, Hex, Existenz, or The Matrix I think you will enjoy this movie!"
