first started to watch this I didn't know what to expect. I heard
it had won a number of awards and that it generally had good reviews,
apart from that I knew nothing about it.
Hmm...not stunning and not dreadful. For a '93 production, the quality was disappointing. The colour and sharpness ranged from good to excellent, without ever really deciding which it wanted to be. There's nothing wrong with the quality, it's just that having watched Millionaire's Express (1986), the film should look better.
is reasonably clear, although dialogue can sometimes appear muffled.
Kong" if you know what I mean. Grammatical and syntax errors throughout,
though not so bad as to make the film incomprehensible. The one
thing I really hate with some Hong Kong DVD's is when writing and
singing is not subtitled, as is the case here.
Poor by comparison to most "average" DVDs - you only get info on Lau Ching Wan - What About Anita?! - and there's no theatrical trailer. I was quite disappointed about the extras, but seeing as the film is brilliant, I'll let it go...
would recommend anyone to buy this film. It's wonderfully acted,
directed and scored and I wish more films like this were made in
