Real Pro Andy Lau's Magic . It scores a 7/10 for me
7 March 2021 | by var_rienSee all my reviews

This movie entertained me . I found the general level of acting , script , action sequence and story line sufficiently intriguing .

However for me the ultimate joy of this movie was the presence and performance of maestro Andy Lau - while the story line/script and production on the whole may not have been exactly a grand production (not that it was meant to be ), there was sufficient platform for Andy's typical charistmatic personality and acting magic to spring forth , uplifting the movie to well above average .
