Critic Reviews for Pali Road
Credit star Michelle Chen for playing it with a straight face. Her performance alone prevents this from fully degenerating into the Lindsay Lohan vehicle it otherwise is.
The lack of a strong inner conflict or neurosis for Lily ... makes the resolution of "Pali Road" prosaic, a lost opportunity.
As a travelogue for the green-and-blue lushness of the Aloha State, "Pali Road" has its postcard appeal, but for fans of love stories that split the mind and agitate the heart, this one is postcard-thin as well.
A lot of the weight of selling the story falls on Ms. Chen, and she's not entirely up to the challenge, but Mr. Lim is able to build suspense anyway.
"Pali Road" has pretty low expectations of its audience. It ought to be light on its feet, but it lumbers.
Adding to the appeal is the ability of [director] Lim and cinematographer Quyen Tran to make the Hawaiian landscape seem both beautiful and threatening, an element rarely seen in Hollywood's picture-postcard portrayals of the islands.
