It been 3 years since they were pair up again by Johnnie To, before that they were a couple (though not leading couple) in Infernal Affair and Magic Kitchen. Well since Johnnie To is directing i had high expectation for this movie, since Love on a Diet and Needing You is one of my favorite romantics film.
Plot: Sammi and Andy is a couple and are thieves, which they recently sold 170 million in diamond. Suddenly, Andy Lau call for a divorce because "they can't split the money evenly". Of course that not the official reason, and you wouldn't find out why until the end. 2 years later, and we see Sammi Cheng dating a rich kid, but she's not really in it for love has she still in love with his ex-husband (andy Lau). She here because she wanted the guy family jewel, a necklace. So, she planned to stealing it, but somehow Andy Lau stole it before she did. Now we see Sammi Cheng desperately begging Andy Lau on where the necklace.
The movie was surprising because it wasn't really a romantic comedy, which i seriously was hoping for. The movie wasn't has good has the 2 previous movie they made together (probably because Wai Ka Fai is not co-directing), but it was still above average HK romantic films. Sammi Cheng is a gold digger, who rather has jewellery than love. Andy Lau is a character who is smarter than Sammi Cheng and always wins in the games they played. They really have good chemistry together, which really made this film more enjoyable. The plot is pretty good with some nice interesting twist and character involvement.
The movie is worth watching because Johnnie To doesn't make bad film, though this year he didn't make any spectacular film. The really down side is they didn't play the song that Andy Lau sang, which I really like!
