Interactive Murders
Hong Kong 2002
Directed by Billy Tang.


Andy Hui is a retired police officer called in to help a frustrated police team headed by Alex Fong crack a kidnapping case in which the criminal uses the Internet and streaming video to broadcast his demands. He also uses the web to send the detectives puzzles, which in a neat bit of interactivity, are shown on screen so the audience can participate in discovering the clues -- though watching from home makes the images a bit too small for this to be really feasable. The story never flags, until a last minute twist which left me somewhat bewildered and at a loss as to the point of the entire exercise.
