The Viral Factor Reviews
Good way of putting it Tom, the camera rarely stays still for long. Great acting and effects. Could have done with less melodrama, but the family angle makes the bromance work. Lam is at his best in his bullet ballet wheelhouse.
The writing is awful, but pretty much everything else about the film is good. Dante Lam's direction is strong, the performances from Jay Chou and Nicholas Tse are good, visuals and production values are excellent and the action scenes are top calibre. Some individual scenes are well written and executed, and there is generally a lot to like about the film. Generally, the further the whole 'Viral Factor' aspect is pushed into the background, the more engaging and enjoyable the film is - and for much of the running time it is indeed relegated to the background.
Action filled but nothing special or memorable in particular.
decent acting by JC.
Wtf cinematography, *earthquake!!. omg pening. @.@.
I liked the twist with the doctor and Jon constantly befriending and saving her almost throughout the story besides in the end. I would have liked to see Jon return home to his mother but hey the story was soo good the ending was still solid.
I definitely recommend not only because of the action scenes but a thousand bullets were flying and people actually go shot unlike some american made movies lead actors ...lol
