Excellent through and through...
17 July 2006 | by rockthebasketSee all my reviews

The cast of "Fast Money", for starters, is top flight, from top-billed to extra. I always knew the talented Archie Kao could "hit it outa the park", given the right role...and does he ever. I'd love to see a full length version of this story, although director Jerry Chan has told the story so beautifully and succinctly in 14 minutes that...well, suffice it to say, I want to see more of the Chan/Kao team working together! Howard Fong and Dana Lee are no strangers to movie fans...and lesser known Scott Ly, Jeanne Sakata and Mae Hi also put in beautiful performances - Ms. Sakata in particular does a touching portrayal as Jin's mother. Lively hip-hop soundtrack by Snacky Chan and Far East Movement, and the cinematography...WOW. Beautiful visuals, almost stylized on occasion. Making the festival rounds at this writing...if it's screening near you, please add it to your must-see list!! Come on, DVD!!
