Movie trailer

Whoever knows me well will know that I am a fan of Andy Lau. I love his acting skill and find it especially outstanding when it comes to action movies. Like most crime action movie, it’s story is always having the same flow – hero dissolve crime group, someone escape, hero falls in love, the escaped criminal is back to take revenge. The story is closely knitted and there’s almost no time for me to ‘feel relax’ and doze off even though I am pretty tired after a long day work. Some portion is a bit exaggerated, and there are too many screens which is briefly touched which I find it a pity.


看到戏里尽忠职守的警察,不禁感动了;看到奸商为了自己的利益不惜牺牲其他人,有点愤怒;看到盲从的犯人终于改过,有点欣慰 – 觉得这片真的是在玩弄观众的感情起伏嘛!觉得近期的电影程度下降了,幸好《拆弹专家》还挺不错的,希望有多点好戏让我过足戏瘾。
