Left me, Hating it
22 February 2004 | by (Los Angeles) – See all my reviews

This review will contain no spoilers, as there actual events or incidents of any note or interest take place throughout the film. Instead, your senses are gradually numbed by cliché after cliché and a soundtrack that makes elevator muzak sound like Handel's Messiah. Leon Lai takes the lead role and proves his acting chops are even less credible than his non existent vocal "talents", and the remarkable lack of chemistry between himself and Faye Wong utterly tears the bottom out of this already rather unseaworthy love Boat. Good points about the film ? Leon's driver in the film steals every scene he is in by default, as he isn't quite as unforgivably wooden as the stars of the show. There is an old man with a kind face. Rather a pathetic attempt at finding the film's merits I must admit, but the best I can do. So there you have it. A romantic drama without romance or drama. Starring an singing actor who can neither act nor sing. Script ? Screenplay ? I'm not sure they thought of that before they finished shooting. I went to see this film at a special valentine's day showing, but it made me seriously consider leaving my girlfriend, and going to live a hermit's existence in a cave just on the implausible offchance that anything in my future affairs of the heart might remind me of this seemingly everlasting dullathon.
