This movie was amazing...
14 July 2020 | by paul_haakonsenSee all my reviews

A single word is really only needed to summarize this movie. And that word is: wow.

I have a tremendous love for the Hong Kong cinema, and a movie such as "Floating City" (aka "Fu sing") is one of the reasons why I love Hong Kong cinema so much. Granted, I hadn't heard about this 2012 movie from writers Marco Pong and Ho Yim before now in 2020, when I was given the chance to sit down and watch it. Needless to say that I jumped at the chance, without knowing what I was in for here with this particular movie.

Initially the movie started out as being somewhat strange, but it quickly became something very interesting and beautiful at the hands of director Ho Yim. The way the story was presented was spectacular, and the storyline was really captivating and moving. It is the kind of story that sinks in and will stay with you for quite some time.

In fact, the script was so compelling and emotional that you might want to have a tissue or two ready towards the end of the movie. This was really a fantastic movie in many different ways.

The movie stars some really nice acting talents, with the likes of Aaron Kwok, Josie Ho and Annie Liu. And everyone in the movie really performed quite well with their given roles and characters, and that was something the really contributed greatly to the overall enjoyment of the movie. I will say that this 2012 movie was without a doubt one of the best performances by Aaron Kwok that I have seen; he was really phenomenal in this movie.

I was genuinely surprised with the outcome of the movie and found it to be a very spectacularly told story; one that I have taken to heart and one that will stick with me for quite some time. There weren't really a dull moment throughout the course of the movie, and the various events throughout the story were nicely tied together in a very fulfilling and wholehearted manner by director Ho Yim.

If you enjoy the Hong Kong cinema and want a movie that is driven by a phenomenal storyline, then "Floating City" is a must watch. I am rating it an eight out of ten stars. "Floating City" is definitely well worth the time, effort and money.
