Devil Touch
Hong Kong 2002
Directed by Billy Tang.


Tang follows up last year's SHARP GUNS, a movie filled with intricate ploys, clever strategems, and byzantine betrayals, with DEVIL TOUCH, which tries to be just as clever but doesn't quite pull it off. When a department head (Michael Tao) is accused of sexual harassment by his secretary, it is only the first in a half-dozen ploys set in motion by the various department heads jockeying to become the next CEO. Investigative attorney Alex Fong has to unravel the plot while ambition leads to extortion, murder, and a chase around his house with a chainsaw. Pinky Cheung and Iris Chai are the sexy femme fatales. The DISCLOSURE/BASIC INSTINCT-type sexual thriller has never been my favorite genre, and this one is no exception.

Rating: Marginally Recommended (Marginally Recommended)
