Xu Jizhou,the director of this crime thriller, called "The Liquidator",told Movie magazine:

"What would attract moviegoers at the beginning are not those characters, although they are especially sensitive and subtle in their personality. So we start the movie with an eye-catching process of a rationalization ceremony scene that takes place before a crime is committed. This would definitely arouse people's curiosity to go on watching."
