I am a fan of Angelica Lee's acting. She seems so natural, no matter what role she plays. As the model for a computer game character, she seems at once perfect. The two actors that play the game's creators, Daniel Wu and Edison Chen, are also fine, but they don't have the same degree of likability. I have seen more than one film in which Ms. Lee has acted in which her looks are somewhat disparaged (If memory serves, in "Koma" she does it herself!). She has beautiful, big dark eyes and is otherwise very appealing. That appeal, along with her willingness, somewhat reluctantly at times, to go along with being the computer game model, makes the film enjoyable. Of course, there are other things going on, and they don't detract from the movie's unusual premise. You want everyone to succeed in this film. This film sometimes plays on the high definition cable channels, and it looks great in HD. Don't miss it.
