Not a Andy Lau movie
Superb performance by Andy Lau which is flawless that bring u to its character. This movie mostly reflect Andy lau acting career and HK movie Industry highest peak era. But many thing seems force to add into it out of logic.Xiao Yang too exaggerating acting and relationship with Wan Qian not very convincing in this movie.Andy Lau deserve a better script as his contribution to Movies industry. There still a lot of laughter in the theater.thank u for the memories, Andy Lau.
