Shanghai Movie Review

After i back from Kampar and even before have time to go home already when to Tropicana Mall for a movie. Wanna watch Sorcerer's Apprentice in the first place, but only left front row or separated seats, actually me ok with that but Ms Pan TARAK MAU, and her mouth keep mumbling "SHANGHAI, shanghai, SHANGHAI..." in no choice, bought 2 Shanghai movie tickets.

Here some short synopsis from

An American intelligence official (John Cusack) returns to a corrupt Japanese-occupied Shanghai four months before Pearl Harbor, only to discover that a friend has been killed. While he unravels the mysteries of the death, he falls in love and gradually discovers a much larger secret that his own government is hiding.

My summary:
Is kinda hard to understand a movie if i dunno what movie i gonna watch it at first place. But luckily still manage to slightly understand what the whole movie all about. All the story was happened before the invasion (take over) by the Japanese into Shanghai and before Pearl Harbour being attacked. (that all...i won't spoil it, you go n watch it).

Starred by Chow Yun Fatt ,Gong li and John Cusack (2012), the veteran like Chow Yun Fatt and Gong li are still a damn good actor/actress their skill in acting still grow and growing especially Chow Yun Fatt expression...COOL, while Gong Li's cleverage still that DEEP...

My overall review: 7.0/10
(an interesting movie indeed)

p/s: the japanese guy, Ken Watanabe who starred in Inception too, i tot NABE only used to curse ppl...
