HK Neo Reviews: My Kingdom, 21 November 2011
Author: (webmaster@thehkneo.com) from Australia

My Kingdom fails big time because the director forgotten the cutting floor. The film suffers from poor pacing, editing and everything associated with the production room. It is the kind of film that is beautiful to look at, namely the actors, the actress and the surrounding 1920s Shanghai backdrop, but comes off empty and unfulfilling. You know there is a problem when you enter the film with zero expectations and still managed to be disappointed. It is all the more disappointing when you realise an actress in the calibre of Barbie Hsu is suitably wasted and probably the best thing to happen in the film. There is no ongoing debate as to the other two male leads in Wu Chun and Han Geng as neither can act above their restricted wooden facial expressions and range. Fans of old school kung fu cinema can rejoice in seeing veteran Yuen Biao and Yu Rong-Guang gracing the screen in the opening minutes, but its all downhill from there. All in all, My Kingdom does not feel like a complete film, but rather an episode of happenings here and there. The plot is unbelievable and the acting is non-existent. Barbie Hsu has done better works and even the action sequences directed by Sammo Hung cannot save this Kingdom from sinking into hell…

Neo rates it 3/10
