Simon Yam and Director Roy Chow Team Up for the Suspense Flick Nightfall


You simply can’t go wrong with Simon Yam. I mean, I guess you can, technically speaking, but I’ve yet to be disappointed with anything that features the veteran actor in a prominent role. Below you’ll find a trailer and a new poster for Roy Chow’s upcoming police drama “Nightfall”, a motion picture that doesn’t stray too far from your typical Chinese procedural. Detective investigates a cold case, discovers new clues, unearths dark secrets — it’s not a reinvention of the wheel, but it appears to roll fairly well. Doesn’t that make any sense whatsoever? I certainly hope so, because I’m too lazy to rewrite it.

Check out this meaty synopsis for more plot-related details:

When a Hong Kong celebrity is found brutally murdered, his body floating in the middle of the ocean, hardheaded detective Lam is called in to take charge of the investigation. As Lam zeroes in on a killer from the past, the murder appears to be a straightforward case of revenge. But the more that Lam pursues his suspect, the deeper he falls into a web of lies. To find the truth, Lam must dig into a 20 year-old case for answers, the one link tying the suspect to the celebrity. But in doing so, Lam will uncover a dark secret so shocking; it will turn the investigation upside down. Who is the victim and who is the killer? Just as Lam believes he has everything figured out, he will discover that there’s a fine line between love and hate.

“Nightfall” also stars Michael Wong, Nick Cheung, Shawn Dou, Janice Man, and Kay Tse. Expect the film to land in Chinese theaters later this year. In the meantime, check out the trailer below.

    As you say, anything featuring Simon Yam is at least worth a look

      lol i just wana say SIMON YAM is great but on average Nick Cheung nevers falls flat like Yam in some films. Cheung is more versatile . I say see this because NICK IS PLAYING A VILLIAN !

        Yam was pretty good as the bad guy in “Exiled” and “Full Contact”. There’s a bunch of other movies where he plays villains, but I havent seen many of them.
