I tried watching Longman Leung and Sunny Luk’s Cold War but just couldn’t get into it. I found the direction a little too showy and it seemed as if every scene consisted of characters yelling at other.
I tried watching Helios, the duo’s sophomore directorial effort but again did not get far. I found the same kind of showiness in the direction but less yelling this time around, so that’s an improvement. Even with the always solid Nick Cheung, the movie just felt over stuff and incoherent at times.
