"Best HK Film Ever?" I hope not!!
on 12 December 2011
According to the DVD jacket "PR" this is "the best HK film ever". I hope not for the sake of all the other HK films out there!
Well maybe the PR is like the Carlsberg lager ad "probably the best beer you will ever taste".
As it happens I quite like Carlsberg, not my favourite but I will imbibe and might suggest others do the same.
As for "the Killer" movie I would not EVER, EVER, suggest they see this film. It is possibly the worst film I have ever purchased. If it were possible to give it NO STARS I would. By the way "1 star" officially means "I hate it".
It is clichéd to the extreme, with hollow characters, pathetic (if slightly comical) Kung Fu sound effects and possibly the worst ending of any film, ever. I must admit I fast forwarded to the end of the film hoping for a sound ending to make up for a lacklustre movie, no joy there then!
Look elsewhere for a movie regardless of what other review sites such as, the usually trustworthy, Rotten Tomatoes might say. (100% rating, what were they on when they watched it?)
Summary; avoid like the plague.
