Sappy Hong Kong ghost comedy.
3 May 2016 | by OllieSuave-007See all my reviews

Hong Kong pop singer Sammi Cheng plays May Ho, a woman who after getting into a car wreck received a six sense in her left eye.

It is indeed a ghost movie, but like much Hong Kong movies with the supernatural theme, comedy is mixed in. In this case, it works a little in the movie as the plot was well-paced and acting was decent. There are also some sappy romantic scenes, which makes you sometimes think you're not watching a ghost movie. There's also quite a bit of gore in the film, which seemed out of place for such a sappy film.

Overall, it's not too bad of a film. It's watchable, has some unpredictable moments, but it doesn't surpass some of the more conventional and intriguing ghost comedies of the 80s and 90s.

Grade C
