Lobster Cop
30 August 2018 | by jackson_roSee all my reviews

Wang Qianyuan and the rest of the cast really shines in Lobster Cop, a movie that is both ridiculous and full of heart. But heart doesn't always make up for a subpar plot, and in essence the movie is like many other cop films in China we've seen over the years. Corny and predictable in the most inconvenient times. The most surprising aspect is the use of bright neon lights throughout the film that does give the movie a little extra flair and style. Also wished Shen Teng would have a bigger role, as his character is one the best.
