Forest of weak plot and feeble storyline...
7 July 2013 | by (Denmark) – See all my reviews

As much as I enjoy most of the Pang brothers movies, and as much fan as I am of Shu Qi, then this movie sort of left me with an odd taste in my mouth.

Now, don't get me wrong, it is not entirely a bad movie. There were interesting parts to the story, just as there were some questionable parts. The movie was good at building up suspense and keep the audience in the dark, with only hints and pieces of information as to what was going on.

The things that I didn't like in the movie was the whole concept with plants having a sort of sentient mind and being able to communicate with people. It was just too far out there. And also, once you are let in on what is going on in the forest, and see what is causing the phenomena, I just shook my head in disbelieve, as the movie took a severe blow to the worse with that revelation.

But the story itself seems a bit out there as well, especially if this was supposed to take place in a forest in Thailand. Then why were there so many people from Hong Kong milling about there? Wouldn't a remote forest in Thailand be way out of their jurisdiction? Shu Qi and Ekin Cheng did good enough jobs with their given roles, although they were fighting an uphill battle with the script and storyline of this movie.

I had been looking forward to this movie for quite some time, but never actually got around to buying it before 2013. And now having seen it, I am not overly impressed, but glad that I found it at a bargain price on the Amazon marketplace.
