Notable Cast: Simon Yam, Nick Cheung
When thrillers are a dime a dozen, the best way to go about one is to make the execution as strong as possible. Despite a rather basic thriller plot and a simple enough mystery to figure out, "Nightfall" is one of the stronger modern thrillers I have see. Why is that? Three reasons: Simon Yam, Nick Cheung, and Chow Hin Yeung Roy. Between the three of these men, "Nightfall" comes off as an impactful and effective thriller. It has strong atmosphere and a stunning cast that make it a sleeper hit for the year.
When a famous classical musician is found dead and pulled from the sea, Detective George Lam (Lam) is given the task to find his killer. When he discovers that a recently released violent criminal (Cheung) has ties to the musician in the case that got him put away, he begins to investigate. What he finds out indicates that not only is this newly free man involved, but that the murder he committed 20 years prior might hold the key to uncovering a larger hidden truth.
