Movie: As the light goes out
Comments: Not bad! Not the usual director Benny Chan, not quite the same style. But still entertaining and hot thrills here and there. Not much of acting by all the casts, which is kinda weird because Nic and Simon are one of the best actors I've seen. But the plot is much better and realistic and not full of loop holes like the last firefighter show, Inferno(逃出生天）.
Movie: Police Story 2013
Comments: A disappointment. It's not of Jackie's usual standards, especially for his Policy Story sequels. The plot is so boring that I slept through half way. I've watched so many of his movies, from as old as A计划 etc (most of them dont remember the titles but remember the movies), and this is by far the least impressive. Jackie's shows have always been a "must watch" in my list, but at the end of this movie I then realized the director/producer/script-writer is from China and not a well-known one. And ONE more thing, the WHOLE movie is dubbed by mainland chinese except for Jackie's voice. I heard the term "靠谱"儿 at least 20 f-ing times in the show that I almost burst into flames.
Watch it if you love mainland chinese slang.
It's really bizarre that Jackie allows such sub-standard and someone like a newbie to direct the 6th to this popular sequel.
Movie: The secret life of Walter Mitty
Comments: It's really not my style...not my kind of movie. It's almost like documentary, bores me to death. But dearie likes the scenery and background music.
Movie title: 47 Ronin
Comments: Maybe my expectations were too high.....hmm...the only thing I enjoyed was the digital effects. I was expecting more into the Japanese Culture of Ronin and Samurais, more into black magic, more into war politics and love..........but my cravings werent satisfied. The ending was a let down too.
