What’s It About?
A group of diverse passengers on a late-night Hong Kong minibus from Mong Kok to Tai Po find themselves completely alone in the deserted city after the bus travels through what looked like an ordinary tunnel.
Short Review: 100 Words or Less (no spoilers)
Overall, I liked it. I think the premise is intriguing, and the characters’ confusion and growing paranoia creates a compelling and suspenseful story. The script walks a delicate line by adding just enough humor and heavy drama into the film to keep it from ever drifting into straight horror or gore. I do wish the film would have provided clearer answers to solve the puzzle. I think the viewers – and the characters – deserved a more definitive resolution. The script ends on somewhat of a cliffhanger; it’s a little frustrating, but not enough to make the film unenjoyable.
Final Grade: B-
Thanks for reading!
