Ekin Cheng, THE Mr. Cool
18 December 2008 | by (i1chocolat.blogspot.com) – See all my reviews

Ekin Cheng, plays as Brother Lung (Cool Dragon) in this film directed by Jingle Ma. He used to be a triad member, reformed after ho got out of prison in Thailand after a botched kidnapping attempt. His father died when he was in prison, and could attend his funeral. He decided that once he got out of prison, he will turn a new leaf.

After he got out of prison, he did turn a new leaf. He worked as a busboy at his friends restaurant. However, his old friends from the triads and clans came to him and asked him to join them again. He told them he was no longer interested in joining the triad.

One day, a patron brought along a little child came to eat at his restaurant. And she left the little kid at the restaurant at left him there. Lung called her, only to be told that the kid is his child! Is is a heart-wrenching film, with emotions running high, especially the emotions shown by Ekin Cheng. He developed a very convincing persona of a person that has truly reformed, and has become a humane person, and of a father who protects and care for his son.

Overall, this is a fantastic HK fare. The action scenes was nicely choreographed. And the storyline is also very good, original and was very touching. The dynamics between Lung and the kid is very good and their performance is a commendable one.

Ekin Cheng fans will find this film a masterpiece, and those who have not watched any HK films before, then I'd suggest they start by watching this film first.
