(**): Thumbs Down This film has great visuals but I felt there was just too much going on. I just wish that some of the subplots were edited down (or even eliminated) so the film could have more focus. There is a decent story about love here, and I wish more time was spent on that.

This is a pickup, surprisingly well-done modern love story. What is good about this film is that it's not newfangled but focused on telling a human drama, even though it's dealing with sci-fi-like idea of mixing the reality and the virtual world. Some elements like fancy costume and little-bit-too-straight hell-to-heaven story of the heroin are shallow, but it certainly fits to the whole of this film. Story itself is simple, but characters are not signalized, and their insides are well-drawn. That makes this film different from other similar films dealing with virtual reality. Written and directed by Sylvia Chang and Alan Yuen - I guess original plot is by Yuen, and Chang develops it and directs actors. The main three young actors are all good here, especially Angelica Lee is perfect for the role and shows vivid performance. Anthony Wong gives a great performance in the supporting role as usual. Overall visionary mood is confortable. CG does not bother you because it is used only in the context of the main story which sticks to set in the reality. Worth checking out!
