Wild Search is a delightful change from Lam's more violent films
My views Wild Search
Director Ringo Lam once said he didn't like all the graphic violence in his
films. I didn't really believe that remark until I saw Wild Search.
Wild Search is in many ways very different from his other films like
The film starts off as a crime drama with Chow Yun-Fat portraying
Inspector Mew who stumbles upon a lead to an arms-deal. He raids the place
only to find a dead body and a ten-year old girl. The little girl leds him
into a remoted village and only link is the dead female's sister
The story that unfolds after that is a beautiful love story between the two
leads (Chow Yun-Fat and Cherie Chung). Chow and Chung has always showed great
chemistry in their films and this one is no different.Chow,Chung and the
kid actress are all delightful in their respective roles which really makes
Wild Search a sheer fun to watch.
might be turn off by the lack of action but Wild Search is not really an
action flick and doesn't pretend to be one.
Wild Search doesn't break any new grounds in Hong Kong film-making but it
still remains as one of my fav Ringo Lam film.
