Featured reviews for

Beast Stalker, The
LoveHKfilm, by Kozo source:
«The film is tense and emotional, and sometimes dips precariously into melodrama, but in the end it's not trying to be a great film. It's merely a well-made, solid and satisfying movie, and that's precisely what Hong Kong Cinema needs right now.», by Stefan Shih source:
«Despite its flaws, Beast Stalker still remains an interesting thriller that hinged on the effective dynamics between the two leads in a cat-and-mouse game of one up-manship. »
The Hollywood Reporter, Neil Young source:
«The nuances in Hung's unpredictable character keep "The Beast Stalker" reasonably watchable during the longish stretches between action set pieces -- none of which comes close, in terms of impact, originality and technical bravura, to the car wreck in the first reel.»
Variety, By DEREK ELLEY source:
«Dense, Swiss-clock-like screenplay, with overlapping patterns of guilt and fractured friendships, pulls several satisfying surprises on its audience right up to a final "oh, wow!" revelation that finally closes the plot circle.»
