  • HKFanatic's rating of the film Helios

    The directors of "Cold War" are back with another film about bureaucratic power struggles in East Asia. At times this feels like the Cantonese language version of a Roland Emmerich movie - each scene leaping from one geographic location to the next as a Very Important Person is introduced by a rousing score. Except this is a Hong Kong flick, so there's at least one or two standout action sequences to tide you over.
