The performance of the film Assassination Storm at the box office and word of mouth undoubtedly proved that it failed to catch the audience’s eye. Despite the attractive script as the basis, the production team of this Hong Kong film seems to have made the old mistake again-they failed to turn this good script into a satisfactory film.
With the cast of Louis Koo, Chilam, Wu Zhenyu and Hu Xinger, I didn’t expect the film’s rating to be only 6.1. I really feel that Hong Kong films have run out of talent in Jiang Lang.
I watched Assassination Storm with an attitude of eight or nine points, but I didn’t expect what appeared in the end to be worth three or four points.
From the plot point of view, Assassination Storm has a wonderful story background and role setting. However, these advantages are masked by rough plot development and poor characterization.
The production team seems to rely too much on the plot of the script and ignore the importance of creating three-dimensional characters and emotional resonance in the film.
