Look for a star is a romance movie with a stellar star-studded cast. Andy Lau, Shu Qi etc. As such, one would expect this movie to be a relatively outstanding one. But apparently the predictable story-line is not captivating enough. As the movie progresses on towards the mid part, my friend who was sitting beside me even fell asleep periodically. Fortunately, the movie starts to pick up after that.
The main characters in the movie, Andy Lau and Shu Qi both acted well. However, I find the character: Lin Jiu played by rising star Zhang Hanyu to be the best as it was the most touching one because his circumstances and constraints are something that most people can relate to. I actually feel for him.
Though at times the movie can be a little boring, there were some scenes that are actually quite touching that will pull your heart strings and give you a warm feeling.
This movie is not really recommended for young children as they might not be able to understand the emotions being acted out and the complexities of some scenes. But still, this is a relatively good movie to catch for it motivates me to pursue my love interest and happiness. You will feel the same way too.
I give it a 6/10.
