Crossover Hong Kong - Chinese Movie
24 November 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I guess the movie is a collaboration between Hong Kong movie industry, and Chinese production company.

There seems to be an attempt by the mainland Chinese government to produce movies in Hong Kong lately. The flavor is more oriented towards the mainland Chinese public. This may be profitable for the Hong Kong movie makers as well with 1.5 billion potential audience, the market might be bigger than Europe and Americas combined. The visuals of this movie is definitely mainland China. It takes place in one of the province's police station. The year is 2048, and they have a cyborg cop that uses its talent in a funny way. The sense of humor is Hong Kong, but the color and cinematography is mainland China. I don't like the bluish tint on the color, and very 2 dimensional appearance of the scenes, but the story is definite improvement over many of the stuffy movies coming out of China. This genre is hit or miss. Recently I've watched a really bad Wong Jin movie that was oriented for the mainlanders. I'm hoping that the mainland influence isn't going to adversely affect the quality of Hong Kong movies, but would be the other way around.

This is a pretty good movie, with some cool depiction of the future. Action is over the top in some areas. The cyborg guy K1 is a rascal and that adds to the comedy of the story. People's motivation for their actions seems pretty pretentious. I guess lot of acting ability is needed when you are constantly under scrutiny.

I both worry about the future of Hong Kong movies, and have hopes for the mainland Chinese movies. Next 10 years will tell which way things will go.
