Blend of East and West, Intricate Plot
4 December 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I read about this in NY Times Dealbook article because I follow Hedge Fund and M&A activity all the time. This is one of the first financial movies where I felt the financial plot was very intricate. The pieces were given at different stages while developing the characters and then it kicked into high gear during the 3rd act.

I don't want to reveal any more. This is a fun movie, with a good story. The movie has some good messages that I liked as well.

Could be slightly shortened and better edited. There were also some out of focus shots.

THe cinematography is strong, the soundtrack is good, and the acting is good. I liked seeing all the parts of Hong Kong. It's a lot cleaner than I expected!
