Turbo Charged version of "Wait Until Dark"
22 January 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Interesting combination of talent got together here to make one of the classic movie from the silver age of Hong Kong cinema.

Veronica Yip plays the part of a housewife who's temporarily blind, and Anthony Wong plays the part of a handyman who's infatuated with her. The movie plays little like "Wait until Dark" - an another classic by Audry Hepburn, but this is a turbo charged version of that movie.

Veronica Yip was a rising star at the time, and this is one of her earlier works that exploited her Asian beauty, and Anthony Wong was a relative new comer to the Hong Kong cinematic scene. Neither of them had been given much opportunity to increase their acting experience, but their acting skills skyrockets in the coming years, and becomes much sought after talents in the industry. Even in this early works of theirs, their on screen presence is unmistakable.

This in my opinion is what "Wait until Dark" should have been. The clever sexual angle with the blindness, and the danger of being sexually exploited should have been the theme of that movie also. The risk of getting raped gains high voltage when the actor is so beautiful.

In the end, the movie is surprisingly "normal" probably due to the talent of the two stars. It's not a vulgar movie, and can be viewed as a suspenseful drama with a twist. The producers chose good pair of talent to make this movie, and it's now another Hong Kong movie classic.
