Not a good effort but worth your penny with Sammi Cheng around.
24 July 2002 | by See all my reviews

Lately the horror-movie bug has hit the Hong Kong film industry. As recent as now there was The Eye and before that there were Visible Secret II, Inner Senses, Horror Hotline...Big Head Monster and the continuation series of Troublesome Nights to name a few. However My Left Eye Sees Ghosts is a fresh attempt by the in-separable duo of Johnnie To and Wai Ka Fai and here they combined a mix-genre of a black comedy with a little touch of romance. Don't be fool by the title, as you will NOT see any eerie ghoulish scene in this movie even with BOTH your eyes. It is, as though these days Hong Kong songbird Sammi Cheng has been categorized as a comic actress as she has not played a serious role in a movie for a long time now. Sammi is in her usual acting self once again here but Lau Ching Wan's talent is totally wasted in this movie although he did managed to show his comic side in his character role.

In this movie Sammi is again playing a jovial and happy go lucky lady very much alike the role she played in her previous film, Marry a rich Man but this time she has a much meaner personality. The movie plot starts to develop after Sammi survived a suicide attempt in a car crash. Later she finds herself being able to see spirits with her left eye, a gift she then uses to help a deceased man (Lau Ching Wan) who also acts as her guardian angel, to fulfill his final wish. Get ready for a very unexpected ending in the movie.

My Left Eye Sees Ghosts is indeed a black comedy. In fact almost all the ghosts that appear in the movie are funny looking (like the fat hungry ghost) and non-ghoulish. This film would be a fresh change as lately we have been getting loads and loads of horror stuffs from Hong Kong and it's absolutely fantastic to have a different movie theme although still tagging on with the ‘ghost' theme.

Not really a good effort but worth a laugh or two.
