HK Neo Reviews: Girl$
8 February 2012 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

"Together we did a test, but with immerse consequences…"

In many ways this is a controversial film for mainstream Hong Kong cinema, not only does it deals with the 21st century sex industry, but it shows the actual sexual act in some form of details. Sometimes in the mist of life, people tend to forget about relationships and in the process; everyone is so busy that there is no time to develop feelings beyond a day. It is the harsh reality of an extremely commercial and business world, where the dogs eat dogs. Director Kenneth Bi succeeds in delivering an issue not dealt with by the usual Hong Kong fair, but falls short of its lofty ambitions, by looking at the surface of the online industry sex industry and never dealing with the more complicate themes.

There is no question that Michelle Wai is the pick of the actresses on display. Her ability to be vulnerable is amazing, but it is her natural screen persona that enables her to deliver a character and something the audience can somewhat identify with. In addition, the film possesses an extremely daring display by Taiwanese actress (played by Una Lin) not only bares for all to see, but created life within her character and the reasons behind her becoming. However the same cannot be said for Bonnie Xian and high schooler (Venus Wong) as both pale away in comparison.

All in all, Girl$ is a fun film to watch and most certainly a film filled with potential, but by the hour mark, all the build-up went into the waste bin. In a way this is disappointing as director Kenneth Bi is a talented director who is capable in delivering the tough issues. Still, there is a lot to like about this film and not unlike fast food, it is fast, cheap, entertaining, and sexy and it is very much Hong Kong flavour. Girl$ will probably never win any awards, but in depicting the vibrant sex industry of Hong Kong, it is at the very least starting a trend. Next we will probably see Wong Jing following suit. A decent film that falls short of its lofty ambition…

Neo rates it 6.75/10
