Interesting potboiler
4 February 2016 | by See all my reviews

Daniel Wu's Mark is put in front of Simon Yam's Tiger (does Simon Yam have any free time to be with his friends?) and starts spinning a yarn about how a "voice" is controlling him and forcing him to do very bad things.

Kenneth Bi's "Control" is a very simple movie, which wears it's limitations with pride and which makes the best of a pretty simple idea.

Your average Joe, victim of his own mistakes and forced to do the bidding of a man in the shadows, is not the most original idea ever. But where "Control" could have become one of those silly movies that becomes more and more ridiculous as it advances, "Control" keeps everything simple and, in this way, is a lot of fun. The pace is non-stop, the actors do a nice job, and the plot, even if simple, is explained in an interesting way, giving the characters time to shine. It's not without its missteps and ludicrous plot developments, but it doesn't go over the top, so it never loses the viewer's attention.

On of the aspects where the movie production seems to have put a lot of effort is in the look of the movie, as the story is a futuristic one. The effects are middle of the road. Nothing great, but OK for a production that has not the budget of a big blockbuster. It has a nice noir look that makes the whole's movie atmosphere quite gloomy, in an engrossing way.

A fun time at the movies. That would have been great with more money for the effects and a little more care with some small parts of the plot.
