Absorbing action thriller
- A Hard Day review by Alphaville
Detective Ko’s in a fix. He’s killed a guy in a hit-and-run accident and driven off with the body in the boot. Fortunately his mother has just died and there’s space in the coffin… And that’s just the beginning of his troubles. Who was this guy? In a plot that constantly wrong-foots the viewer, Ko’s life soon spirals out of control. The bleakly humorous situations he finds himself in add to the tension. With a bit more subtlety – if our hero was a bit more convincing and we could believe he was really in peril – this could have been an edge-of-seat thriller. It remains an above-average action adventure that builds to an exciting climax.
