The Mr. Vampire is Back! The Best Hong Kong Genre Film of the 21st.Century!
1 April 2017 | by hilaryswank2011See all my reviews

This feature film successfully restored and developed the tradition of Goeng Si, the Chinese Vampire franchise of the 1980s (1985-1989) ! I was really impressed with their eagerness and the perfect construction of the well made genre film!

First of all, I have to thank you all film crew for making this remarkable Hong Kong genre film that other countries are not able to make. As you know, what Mr.Vampire series (1985-89) depicted was stewardship between a stubborn master and his bad students. The three act structure well embodies the bad students' development via comedic interactions with their stubborn master.

For instance, in this film, Chin Siu-ho's role is equal with Lam Ching-ying's Taoist master in Mr.Vampire (1985) in which he played his student. And Babyjohn Choi is equal with the Chin's role in the master piece.

The most impressed detail is that the directors selected the cleanup department workers as their Ghost Busters of Hong Kong who are decisively effective and full of contributions to the hygiene of urban and rural sights all over Hong Kong. This setting complies with the foundation of art in general according to what Leo Tolstoi said in the late 1890s.

About the creativity with the newly renovated Coeng Si, their computer graphical work resembles the vampires in the rebooted Fright Night (2011) and Let Me In (2010).

In conclusion, this film was loved and welcomed by kinds of the contemporary Hong Kong film audiences and me!

One of the casts, Richard Ng said that the traditionally loved Coeng Si film is comedy! Yes, he was right!

Thank you again for this great gift for Coeng Si film lovers!
