Angela Mao Underutilized
7 December 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I was watching through Angela Mao's flicks and came across this one. Angela Mao started out at Golden Harvest, and because of their excellent production quality, all of her early works with Golden Harvest were of excellent quality. Her works with any other company were few notches below those compared to the Golden Harvest's. That being said, this is not such a bad movie. I've seen enough shoddy works from various movie studios that relatively, this comes across as at least par with other Taiwanese, and Hong Kong movies of the era.

It's interesting to see Angela Mao in her native environment. She got married around this time, and she's captured at the height of her beauty. Her movements are amazing, and although short and underutilized, she does make the movie lot more watchable.

The only thing that's epic about this movie is its beginning and ending credit rolls. Taiwanese movie studios must have had serious case of making movies by a committee. This show as they missed the whole point: If they could hire Angela Mao, they should have featured her more prominently throughout the film. She shows up for few seconds couple of time in this movie. What a waste of talent.

So the movie probably followed a pat formula they had for making movies. While acceptable, the word "talent" doesn't seem to matter much to these people - a stark contrast to Raymond Chow who recognized a good thing when he saw one.

Maybe that's why Taiwan while much more rich in land resources hasn't gotten beyond the first base when it comes to movie production while Hong Kong cinema is now world renowned.

Hord of bozos doesn't replace one visionary, and this movie seems to be a proof of that concept.
