Watch this if you liked: "The Eye", "Double Vision"

"Missing" is a story of romance and mystery that happens in a real life Asian Atlantis, Yonaguni, a sunken ancient city lying between Taiwan and Japan. The story started when Jing Gao met Dave Chen. Their friendship evolved into a deep love for each other and Dave Chen decided to propose to Jing Gao. The engagement ring was hidden somewhere in the mysterious underwater ancient ruins where he planned to propose to her.

It was supposed to be a happy ending but Dave disappears without a trace, leaving Gao Jing in a dilemma. She resorts to consulting spirits and phantoms in order to find Dave, but Dave's sister Helen does not believe that her brother is dead and insists on finding his head as proof of his death. At the ruins, they find a camcorder and a human head belonging to a woman who drowned at the mysterious ruins a year ago. Thus, the story begins.

Given the teaser in the trailer, scary and horrible scenes were anticipated. However, the story was more of a sentimental love story between Dave and Jing Gao, an emotional film about love and loss. It doesn't really chill us with creepy moments. However the relationship between Dave and Jing Gao was remarkable. It touches the hearts of the audience with Jing Gao's sacrifice at the end of the story.

This movie is a little confusing because in the end it was all just Jing Gao's hallucinations after the tragic loss of her memory. "Missing" may be a bigger disappointment than movies like "The Eye" or "Shutter" that managed to horrify and scare the living daylight out of their audiences. The spirits and apparitions in this movie weren't all that bloodcurdling compared to previous ghost movies.

Overall "Missing" is a pretty decent movie. The director could have added some creative shock factor to make the movie more appealing and less predictable and cliché. There's a ton of potential as to how the story could be developed. All in all, "Missing" is not for serious horror movie lovers.
