Sky on Fire (Chongtian huo) - Movie Review

Sky on Fire is an action thriller that follows a security lead of a high tech pharmaceutical company who must keep top secret stem cell research from falling into the wrong hands. The movie was written and directed by Ringo Lam and features acting performances from Daniel Wu, Simon Yam, Hsiao-chuan Chang, Amber Kuo, Ka Tung Lam, Leon Lai, and Jingchu Zhang.

On the surface, this looks like a thrilling action movie with lots of shooting, explosions, and car chases. While it does have all that, it is lacking in a coherent plot or any sot of logic. The editing of the film is atrocious which is surprising coming from such an accomplished, veteran film maker like Ringo Lam. Lead actor Daniel Wu is about the only saving grace for this film as he does about as good of a job as he possibly could with the material given to him.

The Verdict:
Sky On Fire is a confusing, incoherent mess of a movie. There's really nothing else that needs to be said.
