This is a decent film, but as a viewer I have an extreme aversion to Louis Koo that I don't think I'll ever be able to overcome. In "Accident," Koo plays a mostly silent character - a role that calls for an actor who can convince the audience of his shrewd intelligence and constant mental processes without saying a word. Louis Koo is not that kind of actor. He's a blank slate and it brings "Accident" down a notch.
Excellent premise&nice cinematography. But the lead actor was disturbing at times (being so very clean&shaven throughout the film, due to how messed up his reality was).Other than that, it was an OK thriller, and I actually sense there'll be a crappy hollywood remake.
Great premise, poor screenwriting. As per usual of Johnnie To productions whether he directs them or produces them, the technical aspects of his films are superb and innovative. From music score to cinematography to action choreography. Louis Koo takes on a somber approach in his role as the leader of the assassins and becomes almost like a unsuccessful Travis Bickle towards the end. Ending is good but needs tweaking
