A Sign of things to come in this early John Woo comedy
Follow The Star is a starring vehicle for 70's pop star Rowena Cortes featuring Roy Chiao as her drunk guardian. It's a very interesting film because John Woo employs his visual trademarks throughout the movie, i.e. wipes, montages, slow motion editing, motorcycle stunts and quick paced editing. There's his usual heavy handed melodrama mixed in as well. For a comedy, there's quite a few actions set pieces that Woo would later reuse in his other films (The Killer, Once a Thief and M:I 2). The villans in the film are very amusing to see because there so obtuse. A monkey masked Mr.Big type, a very effeminate asassin, a hit man with cateracts and one is armed with a decks of poker cards. Check out the final showdown in a Church! It's a real hoot. Highly recommended, A-.
