Another blindly invested Chinese film
5 February 2018 | by CyniLogicalSee all my reviews

Very disappointed again. I just couldn't understand why the Chinese movie industry never realized that a generic screenplay would never work. All the actors in this film were miscast, the female leading role as a detective was too young, the psychiatrist, another laughable role who looked more like a young guy in a school drama class, playing an role by dying his hairs to look more authentic as a matured scholar. The screenplay was so ridiculous, the soundtrack so annoying, everything just looked over-the-top dramatized and so pretentiously shallow. Nothing looked real, everything looked fake. The casted the popular young actors to play some ridiculous roles with fancy make-up just for the teenagers to buy tickets for box office. Exactly as most of the Chinese TV drama series, making them look like modeling school with heavy make-up and funny fancy costumes, both appeared so modern and unrealistic. These are the productions mainly targeted on the Chinese teenagers who are crazy about the over-the-top ridiculous make-up and the custom made fancy costumes, watching these drama series or this kind of movie are just like watching fashion shows. This film, inevitably is one of them.

This film is for the Chinese teenagers, a video game playing generation, but not for the matured adults. Yes, if you are matured enough, avoid this film, don't waste your time.
