Film Review

When I saw the IMDb rating 6.8 I thought this must be an unusually good Hong Kong movie. Turned out to be just average.This movie has a simple plot: Good king persecuted by an evil brother who wants to take over his throne. Naturally, the good king wants to fight his way back to his throne.Some romance is added to the movie to stretch it to movie length. But that's not enough, so they added a killer whale that plays trick. The editing with the orca is so poorly done, you can see it is swimming inside a pool with a man made island, and not in the ocean where the story is supposed to take place.Strangely, even though two of the main characters are famous singers in Hong Kong, the theme songs are sang by another unrelated singer.

Moon Warriors is a beautifully filmed period kung fu drama starring handsome Andy Lau as the rural and naive yet impeccably good and incorruptible (not to mention invincible) hero, who befriends the rightful crown prince who’s trying to regain the throne from his evil younger brother. Of course, both brothers and everyone they associate with are over-the-top kung fu masters… :-)The story is not very nuanced, nor very original, nor particularly good – but it is saved by the excellent actors, the excellent action scenes, the cool kung fu, and, yes, the whale! Andy Lau’s character, Fei, is friends with a small orca that he plays with in the water and who saves his bacon in some crucial scene towards the end. The whale scenes are beautiful and totally feel-good! It’s made even better by the extra scenes on the DVD, where the whale’s good nature is highlighted in scenes where it, for instance, waves to Andy with one flipper as it swims by. Clearly, all involved had a great deal of fun!My…

I really enjoyed this movie since I love Chinese history. Andy Lau is also one of my favorite singers, so obviously this movie was great. However, they made a big mistake on choosing Anita Mui as Yue Ar Yee. I thought Maggie Cheung Man Yuk would fit the role better.
