Hong Kong movie, based on the internet novel, tells the story of 17 people aboard a small bus that find themselves in the middle of deserted Hong Kong without any idea what happened to the rest of the people. Soon they receive strange messages and unfold another riddles covering the informations about what exactly happened to them. It isnít particularly original premise (f.e. The Langoliers), but with good mixture of mystery, horror and comedy it is quite interesting film and up to a point a very good production. Unfortunately later the creators switched the plot from the mystery and science fiction towards political themes and metaphores living most of the questions unanswered. Which is a shame, because a well devised ending would made it a great movie.
