A blockbuster film which boast of a US$10,000,000 (approximately S$12,480,000) production cost, the star studded lineup includes Shu Qi, Chang Chen and Tetsuya Komuro. Maggie Cheung is said to be portraying the role of a heroine, Nie Yin Niang.

The Viral Factor (Screen Daily review)

The Viral Factor
19 January, 2012
By Brent Simon

Viral pandemic drama takes a backseat to fraternal fisticuffs and gunplay in The Viral Factor, an enjoyably sprawling if completely scatterbrained action movie from director Dante Lam. A nervous tendency to flit to and fro between characters prevents the movie from successfully gaining much of an emotional foothold, and its two-hour running time renders vast swathes of its action theatrics redundant. But there’s enough expressive investment in the two leads to mark the film as a slightly stronger than average genre piece.

The Viral Factor, which unfolds in a mix of Cantonese, Mandarin and English, should do solid genre business in Eastern markets, and find specialty market penetration Stateside, where it releases in select AMC Theaters through a partnership with China Lion.

A mission gone wrong leaves cop Jon (Jay Chou, familiar to international audiences because of Green Hornet) with a bullet in his head, and the diagnosis of two weeks to live. His mother (Elaine Jin) tearily confesses to Jon that he has an older brother about whom he knows nothing. In traveling to Kuala Lumpur to track down his estranged father (Liu Kai-chi), Jon quickly crosses paths with this brother — Yeung (Nicholas Tse), a thief and single father who seems to attract shootouts like a magnet.

Soon Jon and Yeung are both on the trail and in the crosshairs of Sean (Andy On), a corrupt government agent and former colleague of Jon’s working in cahoots with a billionaire funder and a legion of henchmen to develop a mutated strain of the smallpox virus, and its corresponding antidote, to create a panic and make a fortune in peddling the cure.

Lensed across a wide variety of locations, from the Middle East to Hong Kong and Malaysia, The Viral Factor encompasses a lot of local flavors, even if it doesn’t come across as self-consciously epic. Cinematographer Kenny Tse’s work touches on any number of inspirations. The film’s jittery and saturated opening 15-minute siege, set in Jordan, evokes Ridley Scott’s Black Hawk Down, while later passages recall the visual schemes of contemporary cop movies like Heat and We Own the Night.

The film’s action vocabulary embraces Hollywood excess in a manner equal parts charmingly naïve, curious and dispiriting. There aren’t huge set pieces, per se, which gives the action a more naturalistic and free-flowing vibe. But implausibility still courses through the movie, including sequences where protagonists walk away from tumbles down an elevator shaft or a car plunging headfirst several stories and landing on its roof.

The Viral Factor is big-budgeted and handsomely captured, but since its story doesn’t unfold in a state of heightened reality, these bits come off as transparently lazy, a shrugging aping of the worst instincts of overblown Hollywood genre moviemaking. The inclusion of Yeung’s daughter, Champ (Crystal Lee), also seems designed mainly to imperil a child late in the third act, when there’s plenty of unresolved fraternal friction that is more dramatically meaty.

Lam does best when keeping the action straightforward; it’s kind of exciting to see a car crash that doesn’t unfold in a series of orgiastic edits, but rather with regular everyday action going on in the background. Only on occasion does Lam mix in a bit of CGI, which comes across as jarring and unsuccessful.

Chou and Tse, meanwhile, each cut effective profiles, and lend a pinch of gravitas to the movie’s melodramatic inclinations.

FBA: 10+10 review

Largely interesting collection of shorts showcasing older and younger Taiwan talent.

ChinaPost: Bang Bang Formosa review

“Bang Bang Formosa”, directed by Andy Luo An-de, is a delightful road movie that moves boisterously through contemporary Taiwan.

The film has a very strong Jack Neo flavour and greatly resembles his previous offerings like “I Not Stupid”, mixing in moral messages with some humour and a good dose of drama.

The problem is “We Not Naughty” tries to do too much – while Neo’s previous films tend to deal with a specific issue, like the immense pressure to excel Singaporean children face in “I Not Stupid”, “We Not Naughty” deals with a whole basket of issues.

It is believed that Real did not want his wife to drink at the banquet, and wanted her to leave early. Miriam decided to take her leave, so as to avoid her husband’s incessant nagging.

Ever since the 37-year-old singer got pregnant, her husband had been very strict with her eating habits and health. He also made sure his wife abided to every pregnancy taboo.

“To people of my age, Shu Qi is our goddess, so I was really nervous working with her on ‘LOVE’,” said Ruan.

“Sometimes, I’d even forget to breathe.”

Shu Qi may be his “goddess”, but Ruan had recently declared in a post on his micro blog that Taiwan model Tiffany Hsu is his true love.

According to statistics from gewara.com, the largest online movie ticket sales platform in the Yangtze Delta, China 1911 was the second most popular movie on Friday. It fell behind May Day 3DNA, a music movie from Taiwan.

Scheduled to open in China on 16 Dec 2011, the film began its eligibility run at a 22-seat VIP screen at Beijing’s Capital Cinema yesterday. It is screening once per day for seven days.

CF: Taiwan Actress Plays Twin Roles in Romantic Comedy

Taiwan model/actress Lin Chih-ling plays identical twins - one a material girl and the other, a down-to-earth office worker - in Love on Credit, a romantic comedy to be released this autumn.

“The Sorcerer and the White Snake (Its Love)” will be screened simultaneously in mainland China, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Singapore, Malaysia and other Southeast Asian regions on September 29.

Actor-singers are not a new phenomenon, but what is new is that fierce competition is forcing more young stars, with indifferent skills, to release albums to stay in the limelight.

In the horror film, Mysterious Island, which grossed more than 90 million yuan ($14 million) in the mainland, Yang [Mi] is not just the lead actress, but also the singer. Her two singles, Love of Support and Summer in Love, have topped local new song charts and are highly rated online.

The actress, who began acting at the age of 4, played a minor role in King of Beggars in 1992, which starred Stephen Chow in the lead. The slim, big-eyed girl then went on to study at Beijing Film Academy.
