avoid at all costs; no pleasure in watching
20 October 2007 | by See all my reviews

Let me say, I am having a hard time recalling a worse movie that I have watched. This movie made me feel dirty after watching it. And also stupider, if you can possibly imagine that.

It is a disgusting hodgepodge of unilluminating plot points, incomplete story arcs, and one-dimensional characters bouncing off of each other like pinballs.

As a cheap and vulgar substitute for a genuine, emotional experience (like what real films provide to viewers), this movie willingly, almost gleefully, draws the viewer through feelings of shamefulness and pointless wretchedness. You end up feeling not so much as manipulated, but assaulted, by the ugly, cheap crudeness of the movie.

I won't even bother with an attempt at a plot synopsis of this, not even a "train- wreck-of-a movie", more like a "scrapings-of-the-slaughterhouse-floor-of-a-movie". What I will say is that the available synopses of this movie as made available by the DVD releaser is about as accurate as the worst, most deceptive trailers that have ever led you into watching a movie you thought you were going to love, but absolutely hated.

There are some movies which we all lovingly call "bad". This is not one of those movies. This movie is simply bad.

I am not winking at you when I say, "avoid this movie". If you choose to watch it, you will be in equal turns bored to tears, contemptuously angry, and pitifully disgusted by what you see. There is no joy in this film. There is neither the difficult but necessary anguish that comes when witnessing good tragedy. There is only that horrible, hollow feeling that somehow, only the worst of Hong Kong movies can foist on their viewers.

If someone offers you the choice of sitting through this movie with no hands on the pause or fast-forward button, or biting off the tip of your own tongue, I say, "Get ready to bite, hard."
