Shirley (Tao Hong) is a karaoke waitress who leads a perfectly normal love life with her fireman boyfriend Ken (Daniel Wu). But one day, she is confronted by Ken's ex-girlfriend Ching (Gillian Chung), who informs her that Ken has a dark side. Ching says that when they were a couple, Ken used to take nude photographs of her. But right after taking those photos, Ken dumped her and posted those photographs all over the internet. As a result, Ching lost her job as a teacher. Shirley initially doubts Ching's intentions, but she soon believes Ching and helps her sneak into Ken's apartment to destroy those photos which are stored in his computer. Fearing that Shirley may be led down the same path as Ching, together the women join hands to plot against Ken. But the truth is not as simple as it seems. Written by
What do you do when one month after you break up with your boyfriend, you find nude pictures that he took whilst you were dating posted on the net? You recruit his current girlfriend in bringing the scumbag down, thats what you do.
Beyond our Ken is unlike most films coming out of Hong Kong these days, that is...it was actually a good movie put together beautifully with a very satisfactory ending.
Gillian Chung (one half of pop group Twins) did really well in this film, straying away from her normal perky, happy go lucky roles playing the ex, and Daniel Wu as Ken shines as the sleazy character.
I highly recommend this movie if you're sick of the typical Hong Kong films, it was a refreshing change, smart, slick and put together great with a good ensemble cast.
