Port Call - Movie review

This is an effort by Philip Yung, and stars a rather different looking Aaron Kwok, who even got thinner, dyed his hair to complete the look. Very different from the slick cops seen in the recent cop shows. No Mainland money in this one. 
He investigates a murder of a young prostitute, played by a newcomer Jessie Li.

Whilst I commend the acting efforts of everyone, in particular Micheal Ning, who plays the murderer that confesses to the crime, I can't understand the plot or follow the story. It isn't the gore, or even the sex scenes, I don't find them particularly distasteful or anything like that, it's just that I don't get the plot :(

It's a talkie, so there's minimal surround use. The dialogue is clear, the picture quality is excellent, but it's no demo disc..

Can't wrap my head around this ... even though it was well received at the Golden Horse Awards 2015. 

Watch it for yourself and decide.

I decided to make the Denon AVC X8500H the centre of my home theatre system, and finally bring Auro into the system! PS64D8...
