Movie Review - 《荡寇风云》GOD OF WAR

Gladly received invitation to the Gala Premiere of God Of War Movie 
which will be released in cinemas on 1st of June!

Thank you Clover Films for the tickets! =)

The movie brings us all the way back to the 16th century where the Chinese army fought hard against the Japanese Wokou Pirates. In 1557, the pirates take over Cengang in Zhejiang. After months of futile advances, Commander Yu (Sammo Hung) finally defeats them under the leadership of newly promoted General Qi (Vincent Zhao). The battle was intense. The pirates, however, manage to escape.

No sooner has Qi identified the key weakness of the Chinese army than he starts remapping the coastal regions to eradicate the pirates. He also came across the loyal and courageous villagers of Yiwu and drafted them into his own army which soon becomes a formidable force against the pirates, with tactics developed specifically against them.

In 1561, the pirates regroup and once again attack the coastal cities of China. With both the cities of Xinhe and Taizhou under attack, Qi's army is caught between two fires. Even though most family members of his soldiers are located in Xinhe, Qi makes the tough decision to go to Taizhou and leaves his wife (Wan Qian) in charge of the fight against the pirates in Xinhe, knowing that the defeat of the pirates’ elite team in Taizhou will bring long lasting peace to the coastal cities.

It was a good 2 hours war show for my friends, partner and myself. I find that the movie is able to capture viewers' attention throughout the entire screening with its smart moves and tactics, exciting actions, never seen before weapons, as well as a storyline so well-crafted. There were also a good sense of humor in between and some life values being shared in the movie. Overall and in my opinion, definitely a movie worth the watch!

[Movie Review] - School Tales (2017)

Went to watch the Preview Screening of 'School Tales' which premiered on the 12th of January 2017.

Every school has its tales of horror and mystery… Curious school students of the marching band decide to unveil their school’s ghostly tales one day and what they are going to encounter is far more horrifying and life-threathening than they can imagine.

Pretty interesting story to watch with some comical scenes as well as relationships issues in it. Some viewers may even reminisce the old times back in their school days.

With the great help from Ohm and Pun, watch them go through each ghostly tale and solve the mystery together!
