YesAsia Editorial Description

It's never easy to distinguish enemies and friends in Set to Kill. Hong Kong movies on crime, police, and triads belong mostly to the action genre in the past until Infernal Affairs demonstrates a successful example otherwise. Set to Kill is another crime fiction in which the unveiling of traps set intelligently within traps and the depiction of people's inner psyche in struggling with their enemies matter more than action. Director Marco Mak join hands with handsome actor Raymond Wong again after Color of the truth. Ning Jing's acting also allows her be a standout in Set to Kill, while rarely can a female become the center of attention in a police and crime story like this. Apart from veteran actor Lau Siu Ming, the film also features rising young stars to offer a suspense with one conspiracy after another!

When the police are investigating money laundering in an investment bank, all the money suddenly vanishes mysteriously! The head of an international crime syndicate forces Connie (Ning Jing), Assistant General Manager of the bank, to return the whole amount. Her boyfriend (Johnny Lu Sze Ming), CEO of the bank, seeks help from a retired local triad leader (Lau Siu Ming), who in turn sends Nick (Raymond Wong) and three other guards (Berg Ng Ting Yip, Marco Lok Lik Wai, Isabel Chan Yat Ning) to protect Connie. Nick, indeed an ex-boyfriend of Connie, thinks that the case is more complicated that it seems...

Absolute Gem. Customer Review Rated Bad 10 - 10 out of 10
This is a refreshingly interesting film with great acting and superb cinematic value. The plot is tight and the acting is first rate even though actors are "considered" B-rated. It goes to show there are many talented not-as-well-known actors who indeed can pull a punch at the box office. I will consider this as the product of a new generation of thoughtful and top rate directors.

Brilliant Customer Review Rated Bad 9 - 9 out of 10
I am impressed by the script, the cinematography, and the acting by all. The story flows well and in a clear and concise manner. It certainly transfixed me until the very end, not able to outguess the final ending. All actors play their part well, and as a whole greatly contribute to the integrity and appeal of the movie. The only minor flaw of the movie is the special effect, the gunshot wounds are not in the typical "liquid blood" form. Using powder presents a clinical form of make believe.

Not Bad!! Customer Review Rated Bad 6 - 6 out of 10
I had a low expectation on this movie when i learned about this movie. There isn't any famous cast, director, or producer at all. And the plot is all about setting up people. A little confused. But you will be very surprised at the end. That's the part i like the most. So, i would say this movie is not bad after all.
