Not really impressed with this one...
5 March 2020 | by paul_haakonsenSee all my reviews

I hadn't heard about this 2009 Hong Kong movie named "Accident" (aka "Yi ngoi") before I stumbled upon in here in 2020. Needless to say that with my interest and fascination with the Hong Kong cinema, I needed no persuasion to sit down and watch the movie.

Turns out that "Accident" wasn't much of an outstanding movie. Why? Well, the storyline just failed to really sink its hook in me. I never really felt fully immersed in the storyline as it felt rushed and just too simplistic for me.

Little did it help that all the characters in the movie were essentially one and the same, as they had little or no distinctive personalities or traits, so they could effectively have been portrayed by one and the same actor or actress. And the fact that the movie had the likes of Louis Koo, Richie Jen and Suet Lam on the cast list and still failed to be interesting, well... I will chalk it up to some really lousy writing and character development.

For a Hong Kong movie, then "Accident" failed to leave a lasting impression and it was a less than mediocre movie experience as a whole. I just felt that the story was half-hearted and missing very crucial elements to make it a more enjoyable and enriching movie experience.

I am rating "Accident" a mere four out of ten stars. And I can in all honesty say that this is not a movie that I will be watching a second time around.
