Product description

Product Description

Get connected to the spectacular action-thriller that Time Out (HK) calls an exhilarating joyride of a movie. Louis Koo (Flashpoint, Robin-B-Hood) plays a single-father in a dead-end job, whose life changes dramatically when he receives a call out of the blue from a petrified woman called Grace (Barbie Hsu). She claims to be held in an unknown location against her will, and begs him to save her and her young daughter. When the police force refuses to help, he realizes that he alone holds the power of life and death in his hands. However, when the stakes are raised, will he risk everything, including the life of his son, to save the lives of two people he has never met? Produced in association with Warner Film China, Connected delivers nail-biting tension, exhilarating car chases and more than a few surprises in this relentless high-stakes adventure from the acclaimed director of New Police Story, Robin-B-Hood and Invisible Target.

'Connected' is Hong Kong action thriller that released theatrically in 2008 to positive reviews. It topped the Hong Kong box office on its release but unfortunately failed financially in the end. The movie is a remake of 2004 American hit, 'Cellular' starring Kim Basinger, Chris Evans and Jason Statham. It's the second remake after the poor Bollywood (Indian Film Industry) attempt in the form of 'Speed' (not to be mistaken for the fantastic 'Speed' starring Keanu Reeves), which released in 2007.

'Connected' was nominated for five Hong Kong Film Awards (Best Director, Actress, Film Editing, Action Choreography & Sound Effects) winning an award for Best Film Editing.

The movie tells the story of Bob (Louis Koo) who receives a call on his mobile phone from a stranger called Grace Wong (Barbie Hsu) who has been kidnapped and seeks help from him.

'Connected' gets right down to business as it starts with a bang in the form of a thrilling opening sequence, which isn't in the American version. From the start, the tension is maintained with numerous twists and turns. The climax consists of a great twenty-five minutes where the excitment reaches a new level with enjoyable action. All the action scenes are top-notch including a well executed car chase scene.

The main questions are, why watch 'Connected' over 'Cellular' and is there a point watching it even if you've seen the original. Basically, 'Connected' is a better movie than 'Cellular' in all departments. The characters are well defined and realistic, there are some interesting sub-plots, the action is superb and the pace is faster. It's still enjoyable even if you've seen 'Cellular'.

I watched 'Cellular' in the cinema and thought it was alright.

This superior remake of the US thriller 'Cellular' is one action film that does not take itself too seriously, nor does it play things for laughs at the expense of action - unusually director Benny Chan imbues it with an everything-but-the-kitchen-sink approach that pushes to incorporate the absolute optimum amount of both - and just about gets away with it. This film should not work but against all odds it does - the situations our hero finds himself in are frequently ridiculous and the action sequences are gloriously over-the-top. However, the excellent cast including protagonists Louis Koo and Barbie Hsu react in a straight fashion to each event meaning the viewer will find their nerves vicariously imperilled for every moment they are in danger, even as they often find themselves smiling at the purposeful (at least sometimes - for instance the phone shop sequence) ludicrousness of proceedings.

Importantly, Chan has a vague idea of when to pull back and let the drama of the leads' predicament take a more dominant focus, crucially across scenes that include the initial (high quality - see synopsis) set-up and the film's denouement, meaning the feature has its cake and eats it too. Although you will have have spent part of the film grinning gleefully your adrenaline glands will also be peaking as you root for Koo's loveable 'Bob' to continue to stay one step ahead of his would-be killers and save the day. Connected is the kind of film the term 'popcorn movie' was invented for and I'd recommend it to any of the many fortunate denizens of this world who've been gifted with the glorious trinity of empathy, a pulse and a sense of humour.
