Businesswoman Brigitte Lin is blackmailed in this thriller à la Hitchcock.
It's very rare in Hong-Kong to have such thriller with very little action. In Web Of Deception, there is a great deal of suspense but the direction is unfortunately far too common. Characters are not very deep either. A fantastic cast (Brigitte Lin, Pauline Wong, and two Joey Wong for the price of one) doesn't make you forget the movie defaults but still keeps you in suspense until the end.
