Bad Idea

1/10
Author: Sean Parker (seanparkerfilms) from United States
18 May 2005

This movie is positively awful, and there was absolutely no reason for them to make Red Trousers (the documentary about Hong Kong stuntmen) be so centered around it. This film was basically a nonstop "fight after fight" style movie, with a throwaway plot as an excuse for action scenes. Unfortunately, even the fights aren't well done or interesting, because they are so heavily edited that it it becomes very hard to follow them. The acting is also very bad, especially from Robin Shou, who tried to be a bit to involved in the making of the film, being the lead actor and director, and possibly holding other crew positions.

This is pretty inexcusable, because the film seemed to have somewhat of a budget (except for the PlayStation quality computer animation), and the stuntmen involved were very talented, though they aren't given enough of an opportunity to show off the best of their abilities. I must admit that it did have some entertainment value to it though, and it was pretty unintentionally funny.

"Lost Time" may be a horribly bad attempt at action-cinema, but at least it's short.
