It's motorway or the highway
20 November 2012 | by See all my reviews

Motorway being the international title of the movie! But while the money shots (obviously I'm talking about the scenes involving cars, but you did know that already) are really good and exciting, especially if you are really into cars, the story and the acting is not up to par. Anthony Wong is a regular and good actor in not only crime movies, but even he can't save this movie from mediocrity.

You have to ask yourself, if it worth your time watching the whole movie or just enjoying the trailer, that must have at least some, if not all of the best scenes in it. There is no real depth to the whole thing, which might be something you'll be missing, especially if you are fond of Hong Kong action/thriller movies.
