Movie Info

PALI ROAD is a mesmerizing and chilling journey into the mystery of the human psyche and the power of love. Lily (Chen), a young doctor, wakes up from a car accident to discover she is now married to her boyfriend's affluent rival, Dr. Mitch Kane (Kang), has a six-year-old-son, and an established life she has no recollection of. Everyone around her, including her parents, deny that her boyfriend, Neal (Rathbone), ever existed, sending her on a desperate search for the truth. Determined to reclaim a life everyone insists is nothing more than an illusion, Lily eventually begins to doubt her own sanity. Struggling to overcome her seemingly hopeless situation, Lily endures a series of unexplainable and haunting incidents while bravely making her way to an ultimate mind-bending truth about the power of true love. Shot entirely in Hawaii and starring Chinese superstar 陳妍希Michelle Chen, TWILIGHT's Jackson Rathbone, Sung Kang (FAST FIVE) and Hawaii's own Henry Ian Cusick (The 100, Lost), PALI ROAD is a story for the search for true love between two worlds. Her search for the truth to her past life will lead her to question everyone around her and her entire existence.

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.

April 29, 2016 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…

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.

April 28, 2016 | Rating: 1/4 | Full Review…

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.
