Audience Reviews for Ming Ming
This movie actually gave me more than I was expecting, but not enough to make it a multiple watch movie.The story is pretty interesting. It starts out with a bang, with some nice cinematography and cinematic elements (slow motion, freeze frames, etc.) to really keep your interest. The good thing about this film is that is consistent. The great cinematography is sustained throughout the entire picture. The same can be said about the cinematic features as well, but I felt that at certain points they were being over used. It really kept me from picturing this as a smooth flowing movie. While the beginning of the film is good, the middle is extrememely slow and a tad boring. It feels like the characters are too isolated from the real world and seeing them alone, for the most part, becomes uninteresting quite quickly. In some movies this isolation factor will work, but it wasn't working so well here. At least this film picks it up and serves up an interesting ending. It is still slow, but this is where the character interaction picks up and the story unfolds itself as it should.The acting isn't too bad. Zhou Xun does the best job out of everybody with her two characters. I really like films that can put a single actor to mutiple characters and have them performed well. Both of Xun's characters aren't minimal either. They are intricate to the story and have a good amount of airtime.In the end this film will probably surprise many, but don't expect too much out of this, unless you're a big fan of dramas with some romance and mystery.
Wrongly touted as a martial arts action film, this is actually a stylish drama with a smattering of action thrown in. Stunning visuals throughout and Zhou Xun is incredibly sexy.
I'm not sure what it is that I like so much about this film. I just watched it again for the third time and I like it more every time. It is sort of a modern wuxia film, but also much, much more.
