Fruit Chan talks about H.K. again.
22 August 2009 | by aliver86See all my reviews

Before 1997 people in Mainland China think H.K. is a dream place. So after 1997 they go to H.K. to make money. As times go by when they can go to H.K. easily ,than they think about America dream. That's what Fruit Chan want to talk about. Tiger head snack tail in Chinese means beginning strong but finish weak,also symbolize the attitude of Chinese government take over H.K. after 1997. And left hand should not in right hand's place. Hollywood should not in H.K. Is H.K. should under Chinese government control?And the story is adapted the ancient Chinese novel Journey to the West.Sūn Wùkōng & Zhū Bājiè should have more magic power than the fairy.But in this movie they all played by the fairy and also show there weakness.
