I have a love/hate relationship with Hong Kong films. I’m glad that OMNI 2 has become an ethnically diverse channel, but every time a Hong Kong movie comes on, I’m not sure whether or not I should make some popcorn or put an axe through the TV.
I love the movies because they remind me of every single thing about Hong Kong that has so poignantly affected me (and I feel smart when I get the jokes).
I hate the movies because 90% of them end up being crap like Love Undercover 2: Love Mission. It’s all a reminder of the sad state of affairs that Hong Kong popular culture is in right now.
