Watch this if you liked: “Yes, I Can See Dead People” & “The Lunatics”

The Good, the Bad and the Crazy:

• The cast is good especially Lau Ching Wan. The other main actor, Huang Xiaoming, is mostly good but occasionally comes off as unrealistic in his portrayal as the doctor.

• The movie is somewhat similar to Derek Yee's 1986 movie "The Lunatics", right down to the effects used to show contrast in emotions.

• The storyline is uneven, leaving the audience confused of what they are supposed to be thinking or feeling at some parts.

Trivia:

• Huang Xioaming is the only cast member who needed Cantonese-dubbing for his character, as Huang is more fluent in Mandarin in real life.
