Uh oh.
18 June 2007 | by (Singapore) – See all my reviews

Director Kelvin Tong had said that Men in White was made in a way that would appeal to young people. I'm sad to say that he's quite off the mark.

The film's plot is already weak to begin with, and to make things worse, it becomes more and more obscure towards the end. We're not looking for an Academy-award winner here, but how are we supposed to watch a movie when there is no storyline to follow? The entire movie just tossed five ghosts together, and that's it, we get to see them 'live' their 'dead lifestyles'.

Tong tries to recreate the 'Mo-Lei-Tau' impression here, a 'pseudo genre' of HK comedy movies made famous by the great Stephen Chow. However, he's missing all the key ingredients here; none of the actors are close to being as energetic and charismatic as Chow, and most of the gags are unoriginal and continuously reused within the film. I felt like walking out of the theater whenever the rap segments came on.

I've heard Tong's The Maid was quite a good film, but he really needs to stay off comedies. From mo lei tau, at least.
