Was Pleasantly Surprised
17 April 2016 | by joelegeroSee all my reviews

As a white Canadian with absolutely no history of watching Chinese cinema (outside of the Jackie Chan, Jet Li, Bruce Lee flavour) I actually saw this movie on a lark to kill time in between meetings. I was very happy I did. The main characters were likable, the camera work was well done, the story had both serious and light moments and the action sequences are fantastic. I had a few problems as far as figuring out the passage of time (The story feels like it plays out over a week, but it feels like that is a little too long given the scenario presented) but it doesn't really hurt the film. I was surprised to see no reviews on this page, as I feel that this film does deserve to be seen. Seek it out!
