Indomina Releasing is adding another action-packed drama to its release titles, PUNISHED, produced by critically acclaimed Johnnie To and directed by Law Wing Cheong, starring Anthony Wong (Infernal Affairs, Exiled), Richie Jen (Life Without Principle, Fire of Conscience), Janice Man (Basic Love) and Maggie Cheung (Clean, Song of Exile).

PUNISHED centers around real estate tycoon Wong Ho-Chiu (Anthony Wong). While sheltered in the luxurious trappings afforded by his wealth and power, he suffers an unbearable loss when his daughter Daisy (Janice Man) is kidnapped and killed: a victim of her decadent lifestyle and cocaine addiction. Wong Ho-Chiu turns to his trusted bodyguard Chor (Richie Jen) to seek out the perpetrators and exact revenge. Chor does his employers bidding with an unflinching determination and scarcely contained rage thinly hidden beneath the surface. Wong Ho-Chiu goes one step further and orders Chor to videotape each of their executions, an order to which he complies, revealing the depths of depravity to which he will sink to match hand with his former underworld brethren in his quest for revenge.

The people behind “Punished” are more exciting than the film actually is. Producer Johnnie To and director Law Wing Cheong make this film seem extremely interesting. If you add in star Anthony Wong from “Infernal Affairs” and Richie Jen from “Fire of Conscience”, it should seal the deal, but it doesn’t. The film has a lot of twists and turns but utterly leaves you confused and a little bit bored.

The film follows real estate tycoon Wong Ho-Chiu (Anthony Wong) as he deals with the kidnapping and killing of his daughter Daisy (Janice Man). Wong Ho-Chiu turns to his trusted bodyguard Chor (Richie Jen) to find the people who are responsible for her death and seek revenge on them. As Wong gets deeper into this world, he will find that things may not be what they seem in his search for revenge.

The special features are slim and only really consist of two behind-the-scenes featurettes. They are interesting but leave you wanting more. Also included is a photo gallery and an international trailer. One cool feature is an exclusive QR Code on the DVD, which leads you to additional footage.
