A standard Hong Kong romantic comedy...
28 April 2017 | by See all my reviews

I do enjoy Asian cinema quite a lot, and I especially enjoy the Hong Kong cinema in particular. But I hadn't heard about "Paris Holiday" prior to stumbling upon it by sheer random luck. But as it is a Hong Kong movie I just had to watch it, of course.

And the fact that Louis Koo and Alex Fong were starring in the movie didn't exactly discourage me from sitting down to watch it neither.

While "Paris Holiday" has a good enough storyline, then it just never manage to raise itself above mediocrity. Why? Well, because of the characters in the movie. The character were just too rigid and stereotypical, and their actions and choices just seemed to be too far out there at times, which didn't really add much of realism to the movie.

Now, I am not familiar with Amber Kuo from other movies, at least not that I can remember. But she really did a great job in "Paris Holiday", and she was perhaps the one who carried the most of the movie with her performance.

"Paris Holiday" is a standard run-of-the-mill romantic comedy, and it might as well have been set in Hong Kong instead of Paris and the outcome would have been exactly the same.

There are far better romantic comedies on the Hong Kong market, and "Paris Holiday" just failed to stand out among those. As such, it was a mediocre movie experience. Sure, it is worth giving a watch, but it is hardly a movie that you will return to a second time around.
