Woh ping faan dim (The Peace Hotel) Reviews
Everyone at the hotel is enamored by her lies, but Killer sees right through her. The story is intriguing, intertwining themes of regret and forgiveness. Unfortunately, the poor direction with the action scenes maim the rest of the film. The fight scenes are overly shaky and blurry to convey a sense of chaos, but you can't get a good feel of what''s going on. Only in the final battle does the camera finally let you see what is happening, but there are three core action sequences and two are shoddy.
If the action scenes were better directed then they could have matched the strength of the story. Instead it remains as one of Chow Yun Fat's lesser films.
I remember someone rented the vhs... hahaha... it's funny to know that i already watched this kind of movie when i was a little boy -_-
Also, Cecilia's character was the most god-awful annoying character on the planet. So not only did I not care about her, but I didn't see how Chow's character could fall for her. Her role really detracted from the film.
Always hero, killer, cool...
