Movie Review / 電影觀后感 
The movie is somewhat in between "Cold War" and "Infernal Affairs", the type of movies that I personally enjoy watching. With so many mega stars  cum eye candies in the movie, needless to say, the blockbuster movie will be a hit!  Before heading to cinema, I'm all in to support Jacky Cheug and Choi Siwon.  But after this movie, someone has caught my attention, she is no other than Janice Man - beautiful yet lethal with her actions and eyes. Overall, I've enjoyed the movie much, although the momentum is a bit too slow  during the mid time of the movie. The actions and the plot is well planned and some parts of the twist is unexpected. This movie is just a warm up, I believe the sequel will be even more exiciting.
Rating: 4/5


Helios will be screening in the cinemas on 30 April 2015.
