Here we got another so-so movie out of Taiwan and again, turned out to be a quite mediocre one. As usual, the screenplay was not good, the dialog contrite, rigid, unnatural and boring. The storyline, well, again, kinda boring and meaningless, even the director and those actors in the film tried so hard to make it seem to be big deal, yet it's just nothing big deal.
Here again, I have to point out the most uncomfortable and worst part of this film is the 'dialog'. I don't know why all the Taiwanese actors didn't know how to deliver their dialog not so pretentious and not like reciting or read word by word from their script, especially that female main character's voice, so stupidly disconnected and so pretentious; every time when her dialog came up, we just felt that she was reading from her script word by word, and that, my goodness, just drove me crazy. The drawings...again and again, what's the big deal?
About 99% of the Taiwanese actors just didn't know how to act naturally, and as soon as they delivered their dialog, the whole movie just turned into a stage-like crap. If compare to those actors of the Mainland China, Taiwanese actors simply showed their shortness of talent and always gave you an impression they were "ACTING", trying to be that role in the storyline, yet always turned out to be just pretentiously "ACTING", they never gave you an opportunity of feeling real, they never gave you a chance to be "IN" the story, because all of them were just 'ACTING' and didn't give you a true feeling of what they should be. I have to say that Taiwanese actors and the screenplay writers are the worst in Asia, they never improved or changed, they are just a bunch of non-talent people in the wrong business.
This is a no-big-deal film, a big MEH and big yawn in the summer afternoon.
