Storyline

Frankie is brought up in a strict middle class family, but like any other adolescent, he is curious about sex during puberty, so he turns to his "sex mentor" - porn magazines and his mate Jing. With the help of Jing, Frankie has the opportunity of camping with his crush Zoey, and spending time alone with her, during which he loses his virginity to her... not quite! He turns out to be doing the well-known ugly she-boy from school! The episode devastates Frankie, and he decides to leave Hong Kong for the U.K. to continue his study, where he acquaints with lecherous senior James. Frankie is in a stable relationship with Zeta after graduating. Their only problem is their sex life: Zeta is sexually anxious and sets certain restrictions. Not only does that prevent Frankie from being sexually satisfied, it also indirectly leads to their breakup. Frankie then begins his journey back to the mainland with Jing to pick up chicks in clubs, and eventually prostitution, where he meets Celia who ... Written by Anonymous

HK Neo Reviews: Due West: Our Sex Journey 一路向西
1 October 2012 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

The latest Hong Kong 3D sex comedy "Due West: Our Sex Journey" comes from the debutant director Mark Wu, who in turns created something fun, slightly refreshing, a good enough story and even some smart antics to boot. A far cry from Wu's previous writing efforts in last year's terrible "Sex and Zen 3D" and far better than the recent crude and unnecessary "Lan Kwai Fong 2".

With a bit of research on the internet, the name Mark Wu is associated with Cat 3 and sex selling movies namely the script writing of the atrocious "Sex and Zen 3D" and the" Lan Kwai Fong" series. With such accreditations, director Wu does not exactly provide any comfort to the awaiting audience. However, "Due West" is surprisingly entertaining, contains an adequate storyline, enjoyable and sexy performances and even having something to say in the process as well.

Justin Cheung is a far better lead actor than Hiro Hayama's ill-fated role in last year's "Sex and Zen 3D". Cheung shows far more character in his role as the slightly nerdy typical local, growing up in the midst of a satirical democracy family that is not unlike Hong Kong's current political situation. What makes Cheung's character interesting is that underlining all the monologues and self-indulgence, he is easily a likable person that the audience can relate towards. Representing the local Hong Kong industry, Celia Kwok does well as Cheung's mainstay girlfriend and despite being an obvious stereotypical take on Hong Kong's girls in general. I probably won't go into the detail naming each actresses who bare their parts, but it must be admitted that the quality on display (in particular the scene at the camping site and the showing of different types of actual massage on offer) is by far better than the atrocious "Sex and Zen 3D". Jeana Ho also appears in a hilarious cameo, while Gregory Wong is suitably cool and Mark Wu's groovy yet realistic appearance provide adequately support as Cheung's accomplice and venture into the world of Mainland prostitution.

Director Mark Wu succeeds because he clearly respects better filmmakers and there are obvious notions and elements of auteur Wong Kar Wai, Stephen Chow and Pang Ho Cheung throughout in his work. Wu constantly plays with the audience and breaks the third wall through Cheung's constant monologue to the audience. This is extremely effective as the audience can easily walk into the movie and be fully absorbed in the proceeding. Films like these can easily be cheesy and resulting in the audience laughing at the filmmaker and actors alike, but somehow Wu manages to switch this around and created something relevant, smart and sexy enough to satisfy a broader audience base.

All in all, "Due West: Our Sex Journey" is probably as good as it get in terms of Cat 3 sex comedy. After the failures of "Sex and Zen 3D" and to a larger extent "Lan Kwai Fong 2", both of which have fallen down the path of being cheap and sleazy without any substance, "Due West" holds up surprisingly well and even provide a somewhat satirical look on the sex industry. I am not saying that "Due West" is a perfect example of how to shoot a local Cat 3 production, but I must admit that I am pretty impressed with the film's production values, adequate casting, inside look on the vibrant sex industry, somewhat realistic look on modern relationships and sexy performances all round. For what it is worth, "Due West" is easily one of those pure guilty pleasures of the year. (Neo 2012)

I rate it 7.5/10
