“Tracers” Movie Review (summarized version)

“Tracers” Movie Review (summarized version)
(For full written movie review, please visit: http://www.wljack.com/2015/01/movie-review-tracers.html)


Cam (played by Taylor Lautner) is a young bicycle messenger has gone through a series of unfortunate circumstances and owed the wrong people money.  He is trying desperately to find ways to pay off the debt.

Along the way he meets a girl and becomes besotted with Nikki and that changes his plans completely when she introduces him to a world that he didn’t know existed – the world of parkour!

He finds she and her street criminal friends and they become his new surrogate family of orphans. Using their skills in parkour, Cam has gotten involved in things which are clearly illegal. Before he realizes about it, he’s in far deeper than he expected.

Can Cam Get Out From All His Troubles?

How will parkour be used in Cam’s work?

Let’s parkour to your nearest cinema now!

Review:


The Good
Amazing parkour as the main theme.
Well-shot parkour moments supported by casts who can do the parkour themselves.
The storyline is very simple and easily digestible. It has balanced pacing.


The Bad
Poor character development make those characters forgettable.
Cheesy lines in between characters.
Stony acting can be spotted throughout the film.

Verdict:


This movie deserves a 6.0/10.0!

“A great adrenaline rush with the magnificently shot Parkour!” –WLJack

“Enjoyed the parkour scenes!.” – Fellow reviewer, Andy Lim

Highly recommended to those who love Temple Run, Minion Rush and most importantly, Parkour!

Also recommended to girls who love Taylor Lautner! (you will get a lot of Taylor Lautner’s scenes here)

If you are someone who are expecting great storyline and marvelous acting, you should go for Birdman or other movies available in the theatre. Those two elements are 404 not found in this movie!

Otherwise, you would definitely enjoy amazing parkour stunts which they have featured in the movie.



Million thanks to GSC Movies for the opportunity to attend the Premiere Screening of the movie!  #Tracers

Birdman (Summarized Movie Review)

Birdman (Summarized Movie Review)
(For full movie review, please visit: http://www.wljack.com/2015/01/movie-review-birdman.html )


Introduction
Riggan Thomson, once known quite well as an iconic superhero, "The Birdman" is now washed up. He is now battling his ego and attempts to recover his family, his career and himself in the days leading up to the opening of a Broadway play.

Riggan has a difficult time juggling between the set, his replacement actor, his daughter, and other obstacles that prevent a proper staging of the play.

How will his ego affect his current life?

Will Riggan be able to shine again in his career?

Let’s fly like a bird into the cinema near you and watch it!

The Good


  • A fresh and unique experience. It made you believes that whole movie was taken in “one-shot”.
  • Interesting plot and storytelling on inner struggles and outer obstacles in life.
  • Dramatic yet comedic sequences that were realistically convincing.
  • Spectacular acting performances by the casts especially Michael Keaton.
  • Great beats and rhythms in the movie that made the flow even smoother than its already smooth “one-shot” filmography.


The Bad

  • A little of draggy but necessary moments.


Verdict:



This movie deserves a 9.0/10.0!

“Brilliant cinematography, top-notch acting and a realistic experience! A must watch for movie-goers!” –WLJack

“A movie with greater message delivered within.” – Fellow reviewer, Andrew Yem

Highly recommended to those who loves new experience in movie and great acting!

If you are someone who can’t accept realistic drama and don’t buy the idea of “one shot” film, you might not like it. Otherwise, I can’t think of a reason why someone would dislike the movie.


Million thanks to Nuffnang for the opportunity to attend the #NNPremiereScreening of the movie!  #BirdmanMovie

Time Is Money 《十万夥急》movie review (summarized version)

Time Is Money 《十万夥急》movie review (summarized version)

*From now onwards, full movie review segment will be posted in http://wljack.com. Please take note.


“Time Is Money” is the first movie directed by Kang Kang. It revolves around the story of Chen Mo (played by Kang Kang) who is one of the second generation of rich family. Due to his addiction in gambling, he lost everything in which his dad has passed over and this infuriates his old man. His dad left him a painting by painter Chu Zhong Tian (played by Mark Lee) and it is only worth $100,000 Taiwan currency which is not enough to pay off his debt.

After he and his underground boss saw the news in television about a painter and how to boost up the painting’s value, the underground boss forced him to fly to Singapore to kill Chu Zhong Tian.

Zhu Yue Po (played by Ng Man Tat) hates Chu Zhong Tian because it’s Chu Zhong Tian’s fault that he was being placed inside a jail.  Because Chu Zhong Tian was surrounded by enemies, he accept the gallery broker recommendation to seek for Malaysian beautiful gallery broker, Hu Jing ( played by Wang Yu Rou)’s help to sell his painting while fleeing from danger.

Finally, 3 of them meet in Malaysia and start their evil scheme against each other.

What will happen in between three of them? Who will win in the end? 

Let’s find out whether the movie is worth your time or your money in the cinema near you.


The Good:
  • Some Slapstick comedy scene which can make you laugh!
  • Great cameo appearances such as Henry Thia, Jacky Wu and etc. Loves Jacky Wu’s appearance. (However, the cameo appearance were totally non-related with main storyline)
  • Some really laughable performances by some casts. Personally, I love Alvin Wong’s performance who portrays an old hotel manager in Malaysia.
  • Ng Man Tatt singing for the movie theme song.


The Bad:
  • Nonsensical script which at times felt a bit lame.
  • Forceful character development.



What can you expect from the movie?
You will enjoy the comedy if you watch it with low expectation on storyline.


Verdict:
This movie deserves a 5.5/10.0!

“While the storyline is not that inspiring, I did find myself laughing to some of the jokes and slapstick comedy scenes in the movie!” –WLJack

“A few of the scenes are funny!” – Fellow reviewer, Andy Lim

Highly recommended to those who love Kang Kang and wish to support his first movie!
