Феликс Зилич - 3.5/5 source: http://f-ragamuffin.livejournal.com/674631.html
«Многие люди уверены, что хороший современный фильм из Гонконга обязательно должен быть похож н продукцию студии Milkyway. Феликс Чонг так считает, Майкл Мак так считает, я так считаю. Чтобы были молчащие мужчины, серьезные проблемы, крутой, почти “корейский”, саундтрек и безупречная цветная картинка. »
movieXclusive.com, by John Li - 4/5 source: http://www.moviexclusive.com/review/overheard/overheard.html
«Set against the towering Hong Kong buildings, these range from an engaging music score and a visually stunning cinematography to a stylish editing style and a solid art direction. These complement the story, which make us think, under this fine visual package, the underlying message of the darkness that the human soul is capable of is a poignant one.»
KLUE, by Sebastian Ng - 8/10 source: http://www.klue.com.my/articles/2143-Overheard-reviewed-by-Sebastian-Ng
«Pacing is wonderful; constantly engaging, it manages to achieve that suspense film imperative of wounding tension tighter and tighter around the characters, and thus the audience. ... Overheard is a rare gem of a well-made film in an era of languishing mediocrity of the Hong Kong film industry. Deserves to be seen.»
Variety, by DEREK ELLEY source: http://www.variety.com/review/VE1117941633.html?categoryid=31&cs=1
«Lau, as the grizzled heart of the movie, impressively shades in his character, but it's Koo, who's started to broaden his roles beyond tanned beefcake, who's the biggest surprise. »
Twitch, by James Marsh source: http://twitchfilm.net/reviews/2009/07/review-overheard.php
«After INFERNAL AFFAIRS III, CONFESSION OF PAIN, LADY COP & PAPA CROOK and now this, one has to start asking whether Alan Mak and Felix Chong were ever really all that good to begin with or were the first two INFERNAL AFFAIRS films just happy accidents rather than the jubilant salutation of a new creative force in Hong Kong Cinema that we all had hoped they were.»
The Hollywood Reporter, by Maggie Lee source: http://login.vnuemedia.com/hr/film-reviews/overheard-film-review-10040~~~4.story
«The cat-and-mouse thriller is deeply cynical, yet slyly tows the line of China's censors by tacking on a certain rough justice. The cogent script and the hot topics of corporate chicanery and stock market frenzy should enable international crossover.»
Asian Movie Pulse - 4/5 source: http://www.asianmoviepulse.com/2009/08/19/overheard-movie-review/
«Overheard has proved to be a box-office hit in the Asian theatres and is definitely worth going out of your way to check it out.»
