Simply Actors 戏王之王 (2007)

Simply Actors

the movie n its actors feels like "clowns" n fools to me. a little annoying n disgusting if i should critic. comedies n comedians doesn't have to sink this low to attract attention. well anyway ..

the movie is about undercover cops having lousy acting skill n got killed during a mission. n therefore one of the worst cop, chim, was send to the acting school as a trial. where he meet charlene, a softcore porn actress. n their friendship formed. the movie is too lengthy. there is a part where it finally meant something. it happens when chim's 8 years relationship with his girlfriend collapse. he then exchange a heart-to-heart conversation with charlene. we are finally exposed to the core of these 2 lead characters. chim later finds true inspiration from a janitor (Anthony 黃秋生). "only by wading into real life can one get in touch with the true soul of performance". this is where the story starts to get interesting. he then uses what he saw on the street, together with the group of acting students, they save one of their father form a life n death situation. but then .. what's with the one hour plus that we got pushed around? trying to say that acting school is useless? *blurred*
