Pretty Good Movie
11 February 2008 | by crossbow0106See all my reviews

This movie begins with a playboy wannabe Yang Rui, who wants to pick up the maid at a martial arts studio. She resists him, bike riding away from him. It appears this pretty but quiet young lady is harboring a secret (of course). Somehow, they come together, starting a courtship. She turns out to be an undercover police officer, trying to stop drug trafficking. Also, it turns out the deal would be made with Mao Jie, who fathered her child. The film is formulaic, a little too coincidental and, at times, a little slow moving. It is a nicely shot film, the cinematography is very compelling and Director Ann Hui is, of course, widely heralded. The last twenty minutes of this film are very good, but you have to watch the rest to get to it. It is watchable, but I wouldn't wholly recommend this unless you're a fan of the actors and this kind of drama.
