Reproduction of Speed 2 with Taiwanese Label
2 September 2018 | by wdhifhSee all my reviews

I saw this at Taipei this night. And it turned out to be a some kind of Speed 2 with Taiwanese actors.

It should make a purely original action film instead of imitation of Hollywood blockbuster that they have no ground to make in the island.

Government subsidies were provided by its KMT social resource and it has no genuine genre film system established in the island yet.

The scrip writer is seemed as a pure imitator of well made foreign films.

There is some bomb sequence in the film but it's pretty obsolete.

We already have Speed 2 in similar plotting.

Go Go Taiwan film!
