  • HKFanatic's rating of the film The Game Changer

    "Game Changer" opens with 30 minutes of one over-the-top action sequence after another, in a hyper-absurd ballet of bullets and machismo. The pace quickly settles down for the requisite gangster melodrama (based on hit Chinese TV show "Shanghai Bund"). Despite the cast's best efforts, the setpieces remain the highlight, even if the filmcraft is not as sturdy as the John Woo classics they so transparently imitate.
